Chocolates-A Life Long Affair

In this post let us talk about where we can find this ‘food of the gods’ in Jaipur.The chocolate junkie & the Jaipur Romeo will already know where to go.For others-here goes.

Factory made mass produced chocolates by Cadbury India  and Nestle India are freely available. Cadbury India has been around since 1948 when they imported the delicacy for repacking and sale in India.They hold about 70% of the domestic chocolate market share.

Imported dark chocolates and chocolate bars are freely available in the better department stores  and in stores in the newly constructed Malls.They are more expensive than the domestic chocolates.But the new flavours and  the international brand and the sugar free option are the major attractions.

Chocolate is used in pastry, biscuits, cake,ice cream,toffee, indian sweets,desserts and even coffee shakes and hot chocolate ( Hot milk with sugar and Drinking Chocolate or Cocoa).

The Chocolate Boutique at 68,Gopal Bari(2370734) in C-Scheme offers 45 different types of egg less hand made chocolates in attractive packing  & brownies,cakes & pastries.

For baked goods with chocolate- Hot breads on Sarojni Marg and Bake Hut off M.I.Road and Sunrise in Crystal Palm all in the C-Scheme and Bakewell in Raja park.

Melting Moments in Crystal Palm,C-Scheme for chocolate brownie with hot chocolate sauce.

Barista,Mall 21 off  Panch Batti  for Chocolate brownie with hot coffee.

Coffee Bars of jaipur are a hangout for the Jaipur youngsters and visiting indian and foreign tourists and the up coming bright young professionals working in Jaipur.The aroma of brewing coffee is an like an elixir to them.That is why according to a Cafe Coffee Day survey about 18% of a bars customers of 15-29 years age group of both sexes come for coffee every day and 44 % visit every week.

You must admit it is a much better alternative of a hang out than the inter net where they make friends in fantasy land or play games which max on blood and gore.

If you follow the arcane research on the bad or good effects of coffee drinking on your health remember if you indulge in coffee drinking in moderation as in any other vice-you can enjoy your brew for years to come.As you grow older you will realize that your elders were more right than wrong-even in this age of global village and fast changing world.

Jaipur offers a coffee joint for every budget in different locations-in malls,on highways,on petrol pumps- and even in the late hours of the night or early morning.You pick and choose.Most places are open from 9 am to 11 pm.
