Montezuma’s is my favourite chocolate shop, before going in there I was a huge fan of Hotel Chocolat which I still like, but the more interesting choices available at Montezuma’s make them better.
The staff are all brilliant in there, every time I’ve gone in they’ve only tried to get my attention if it looked like I needed it (as opposed to other stores who seem to pounce the second you walk in), offered to get tasters from out back for me and are very informative about their products which was handy when buying for vegan friends!
Absolutely the best tasting chocolate on the planet!
Located in Brightons 'chocolate street' i believe Monte's was the first chocolate shop there and it's still the best. The range of products is a little limited but as others say their strength is about the pure chocolate joy and not the presentation. I've tasted Choccywokky's stuff and it's terrible and Hotel Chocolat is fine for buying gifts and for something a little different but Monte's is absolutely the best. My favourite is Orange and Geranium - heaven! cloesly followed by milk choc buttons. I'm not so keen on the touristy chilli chocolate. You can also get the basic bars in Waitrose and Taj.
If I was stuck on what to buy someone for christmas or their birthday or even a lunch time treat, My first port of call would definately be Montezuma's. Both the Brighton and Chichester stores have got a beautiful selection of chocolates at good prices considering the quality of the product. It's great for me because most of the chocolate is suitable for vegetarians and vegans...When I went in I wanted to try something new - although there wasn't a taster out for the Lime and chilli choc o block - the member of staff who served me, went to find one so I could have a try.
The customer service was great and they couldn't be more knowledgable and enthusiastic about their product.
I'd definately go here, rather than the Choccy woccy place - their chocolate isn't high in quality and is more for the novelty value rather than taste.
I'd definately try the Bean Machine (coffee) and the Salty Dog (Lime and Salt) chocolate again...ooh and the Montezuma's Revenge (Chilli truffles) ooh and the Spice it up (ginger & dark chocolate)...hmmm.
If only this shop could mate with choccywoccydoda just up the road. The bastard child of this sticky-sweet chocofrolick would be the ultimate chocoshop.
Montezuma’s is all about the quality of the chocolate, the taste. Up the street it is all about the presentation.
Montezuma’s now has branches countrywide, but it all started in Brighton. This is where the chocolate is made.
Go here to experiment try something new, it's all Very Brighton
I just love going in here to smell the chocolate. it is amazing. Apart from bars of the stuff, they have cookbooks, gift sets and a range of filled chocolates that may actually blow your mind.
I would guess that this shop is overshadowed by the better known 'chockywockydodah’ opposite - but this is the far superior of the two shops in terms of quality of chocolate (which really is at the top of the spectrum). Really good range of unusual chocolates at a much more reasonable price. I think I remember reading once that the owners were solicitors who gave up the law to begin a chocolate shop ! It might not have the big impressive cakes in the window but it certainly worth having a look inside !
Fantastic place. The chocolate here is purely delicious. There is so much choice and everything looks and smells great. The staff are friendly and helpful and they have a great online service too - quick and reliable. It also has I think the nicest chocolates for vegan or dairy-free eaters. A box of 9 organic, dairy-free and vegan chocolates taste delicious and come in three fantastic flavours. A great gift for those who can’t eat dairy or are vegan.
This is the best chocolate I have ever tasted! It has everything a chocolate lover could ever want. They do fantastic versions of dark, milk and white chocolate. It’s all organic and the emphasis is on the amazing taste. They experiment with lots of different flavours that are all worth a try! However my favourite is the range from around the world, it’s a real lesson in chocolate. Don’t forget to ask for it to be gift-wrapped. I love the giant chocolate buttons. Their sold in large jars that make you feel like the luckiest kid in the sweet shop. Unfortunately they don’t last very long in my house.
This place sells some of the tastiest chocolate on earth. Everything I’ve ever eaten from here has been heavenly. The variety is great and there’s always something a bit different. I recommend on of the exotic chocolate bars. Try the dark chocolate infused with chilli - fantastic.
i love chocolate, verging on chocaholic, and this is by far, the best chocolate i have ever tasted. particularly advisable to the chocolate lover, are the thick, hunky slabs of chocolate, which appear to have been broken up in to pieces with a sledge hammer -they're that thick and chunky. you can point to any chunk fitting your size preference and seriously sink your teeth in with raw unadulterated jaw-opening bites. the slabs come in 8 different varieties including seriosuly dark infused with organic cocoa nibbs making for a wondeful texture, white chocolate with cranberry and almond, or my favourite, milk with pecan and banana chip (melt-in-the-mouth smooth milk chocolate almost defining its own unique genre). definitely worth a look in are their hand-crafted truffles, the many exotic flavoured bars (milk chocolate, peppermint and vanilla is superp and dark chocolate and chilli is strangley pleasure inducing- the original aphordisiac) and deliciously warming hot chocolate which comes in various flavours, for examply milk chocolate and nutmeg, to drink there (comes with an individual chocolate of your choice) or to make at home. Cadbury's will never be the same again.
