Discover International Award-Winning Chocolates – in the Chocolate Boutique of the Chocolate Museum Zagreb
Chocolates from two new exclusive and award-winning brands have appeared on the shelves in the chocolate boutique of the Chocolate Museum Zagreb these days. One of them is Fossa Chocolate from Singapore. The other is Aruntam from Italy. Both manufacturers produce chocolate using the bean-to-bar method. Many people are familiar with this method, but for those who are just getting to know chocolate, we suggest that they look at our glossary. These chocolates will only be available in limited quantities, so visit us at Varšavska 5 and catch your bar while it is still in stock.
SUSTAINABLE BEAN-TO-BAR FROM SINGAPORE
At Fossa Chocolate it is all about sustainability. They cooperate exclusively with farmers, cacao growers, who cultivate their plantations in accordance with the nature of the local area and try to maintain the biodiversity of the environment without affecting the wildlife or cutting down forests. They use only the best quality cacao, of controlled origin. At Fossa, all stages of production are carried out by hand – from the selection of cacao beans to packaging (which, it’s worth noting, is beautiful). This process takes a lot of time, but that’s why this chocolatier and chocolate maker produces only top-quality chocolates without additives. They have been awarded multiple times for the quality of their chocolates. They are winners of the prestigious Academy of Chocolate and International Chocolate Awards. You can find four types of dark and milk chocolate from this manufacturer on our shelves. While stocks last.
AWARD-WINNING SINGLE ORIGIN CHOCOLATE FROM ITALY
Aruntam – Sensory Chocolate is a small chocolate factory that respects the philosophy of Direct & Eco Trade. It implies the purchase of cacao beans from farmers directly, without intermediaries. In this way, it is ensured that farmers are adequately paid for their work, which represents a huge improvement in the social sustainability of cacao production. This method of purchase also ensures better quality for the chocolate manufacturer, because behind each produced bag of cacao beans there is a person with a name and surname who is responsible for the quality of the raw material. Top raw material is the basis of Aruntam chocolate. This producer aims to keep the best of the organoleptic properties of the cacao tree with minimal processing of the raw material. They have also been awarded multiple times for the quality of their chocolates. They hold several prestigious Academy of Chocolate and International Chocolate Awards. We have selected three types of chocolate from the Italian Lifestyle series, where cacao from Ecuador has been complemented with inclusions of top ingredients from Italy. And five single origin chocolates from the Cultivars Collection series.

Do you need to buy tickets for the Chocolate Museum Zagreb in advance or book an appointment and make reservations?
Tickets do not need to be purchased upfront. Come when it suits you. There are more visitors on weekends than on the rest of the week, but there is generally no waiting to enter. Only occasionally does a delay of a few minutes occur if a larger group of visitors arrive at once. Unfortunately we cannot receive arrival dates because we cannot control the length of stay of individual visitors and thus the pace of entry of others.
Can chocolates be bought at the Chocolate Museum Zagreb without entering the Museum's exhibition?
The chocolate boutique is at the entrance of the Chocolate Museum Zagreb. Access to the shop, as well as the purchase of chocolate, is possible without entering the Museum’s exhibition.
What can I expect from the Chocolate Museum Zagreb?
In the Museum you can learn about the history of chocolate, how it has changed over time, who consumed it and in what forms. You can learn how it is produced, you can test your senses and try to recognize the ingredients that go into chocolates. You can see ancient Aztec sculptures, porcelain chocolate makers from baroque European courts, tins of chocolate drinks from the time of the industrial revolution and chocolates from the first Croatian factories. You will also be able to taste chocolate – a total of nine types, each at its own time. You can expect content adapted for children and adults, available in Croatian and English.
Don’t expect a playroom or patisserie. The Museum offers interactive educational content, but it is not an amusement park. It also offers a tasting of selected premium chocolates to help discover the taste of a particular era and to round off the whole chocolate experience.
