La Iberica, Arequipa
(4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
La Iberica produces and sells dark and milk chocolates, marzipan in amusing shapes, and bonbons made according to traditional recipes. Dating back to 1909, this store remains something of a pilgrimage site for true chocolate lovers. Choose from a range of various flavors and fillings, such as nougat, raisins, chestnuts, caramel, and more. Be sure to try the chocolates filled with pisco, a Peruvian brandy. Europeans should note that these chocolates are nothing like Belgian and Swiss chocolates, since they follow different recipes.

  • It is without doubt the best chocolate in the country, but that does not mean that it is good. Compared to the French chocolate, Swiss or Belgian seems poorly made commercial chocolate. All types of chocolate I have ever tasted in the Iberian have too much sugar, dark chocolate tastes even bitter as it should be. The texture is unpleasant to the mouth, as a toothpaste dry chocolate flavor. The best they have is black milky bar but kills it its texture. Since then the country will be a major producer of chocolate, but in its transformation to tablets leaves a lot to be desired. I have not tried their toffees, only talk about their chocolates.

  • I suggest visiting the Jerusalem Street shop. It is more complete, the friendliest staff and always there are tastings with a very sympathetic advocate. There are chocolates for everyone. Even bars to prepare in Cup.
