Christmas is the right time to shower our loved ones with souvenirs and chocolate gifts! For this upcoming Christmas, a chocolate box is a great gift and will be an amazing token of honest attention.

LIFT, on this occasion, brings you to the Chocolate shop located on street 240 (behind the Royal Palace) to sample their newest product.

Would a map of Cambodia entirely made of chocolate come to mind? The Chocolate Shop sells such map consisting of ten pieces representing Cambodia is on display in a silky box.

“One flavor we have, symbolizes the 10 provinces of Cambodia,” says Griet Lorré, owner of The Chocolate shop.

“There is a large selection of flavors ranging from Battambang orange to coffee from Stung Treng, paper from Kampot, sugar palm from Kompong Speu, basil from Prey veng, mango from Kampong Cham, honey from Mondulkiri, peanut from Preah vihear, coconut and chestnut from Takeo”.

Maarten Geerinck, her son who lives and studies in Belgium, implements ideas and conceives every piece’s design.

“Orders are delivered within 24 hours and one set of chocolates costs $22,00,” she says.

The Chocolate Shop will carry another Christmas product and will open a new branch early 2013 at 317, Street 63 (in Beung Keng Kong area).
