Royal chocolate appears even in Slovakia, although it cannot be found in shops. It is handmade in Ostrava in a small family company, according to its own recipe, My Zvolen wrote.

Slovak Miroslav Klembara has been cooperating with the Czech company Královská čokoláda (Royal Chocolate) for three years. He will not hear a bad word against its quality. It is made only from cocoa butter without added fats, My Zvolen reported.

“We are a small production. We make chocolate from cacao substance brought from Italy. The cocoa beans come from the Caribbean region,” said Klembara as quoted by My Zvolen.

He sells chocolate occasionally, usually at castle events. Some of the chocolate art pieces are decorated with gold or silver, others are with nuts and fruits from Skalica, My Zvolen wrote.

The production of chocolate products takes time, reflected in its price.

“The production of a more complicated figure takes a few days. For example, a Christmas tree consists of eights pieces and I made it in two days,” explained Klembara, as quoted by My Zvolen.

Královská čokoláda has already been served at the English royal table, not only thanks to its name. An English art collector who lives in Prague ordered a chocolate set and gave it as a gift to the royal family, My Zvolen reported.
