Why Blue?
The special blue chocolate versions are the brand’s nod to their signature color inspired by the roofs of castles, residences and houses in Anjou that have been elegantly adorned with slate for over ten centuries. This blue schist stone is extracted in particular in the quarries of Trélazé not far from the center of Angers. Known for remarkable quality, Anjou slate is recognized throughout France and the rest of the world.
