The secret of Caramandes®,original creation by Anne Benoit
When Anne Benoit was asked by a friend in the restaurant trade to develop a fine, tasty product with the special feature of sitting on a cup, she had no idea that she was about to give life to her most famous creation: the Caramandes®.
A thin triangular sheet of flaked almonds caramelised in salted butter and covered in chocolate, the Caramandes® is the ideal gourmet treat to accompany both coffee and champagne. This unique chocolate, both crunchy and melting, is now the signature of Benoit Chocolats.
A FAMILY HISTORY
that our chocolate makers bring to life
The first Benoit Chocolats shop opened almost 50 years ago in the heart of Angers. The chocolates and confectionery were made on the premises by Gilbert Benoit, on the first floor of the shop-workshop. Success came quickly. Anne joined the venture in 1997 as head chocolatier, before Véronique opened a Parisian store in 2009. Production was moved to a dedicated laboratory in Les Ponts de Cé.
The story continues beyond our borders, with Caramandes® reaching as far as Japan. Today, the company's chocolatiers, trained by Anne Benoit, are carrying on this family tradition and craftsmanship.
