Schokovida is one of the best chocolate specialty shops in Hamburg, a family-run confectionery offering delectable treasures such as pralines, truffles, and personalized chocolates.
Almost all their products are created on site in a small chocolate manufacture and are made with pure cocoa paste (at least 70%) and cocoa butter, natural vanilla and untreated soy-lecithin, and do not contain any kind of additives or preservatives. The owners of Schokovida believe in fair trade, organic ingredients, and extraordinary products. Sounds expensive, doesn’t it? But it’s not: their exquisite selection of truffles, cocoa, chocolate tools and pasta is available for under € 5.
The interior is designed to accentuate the clear lines of the chocolate bars and to highlight other precious chocolate products in specially designed packaging on the long counter and shelves. The elegant combination of a chocolate-brown floor, teak wood, and illuminated pink acrylic panes conveys a ‘loungy’ atmosphere where you can sit down and relax in comfy chairs while enjoying one of the cocoa creations and other sweet treats, such as dark chocolate cake or homemade ice cream with white chocolate, ginger, and orange.
If you are interested in learning more about the world of chocolate, you may want to attend one of Schokovida’s gourmet events, such as wine & chocolate tastings or a class to that teaches how to make pralines. These events are very popular, so I would advise you to book way in advance.
