Fantasie Fine Chocolates, which has a branch in Pune, produces some of the best chocolates in the country. It is a chocoholic's paradise! Zeba Mitha Kohli, third-generation chocolatier and the lady behind this enterprising venture, is known as India's First Lady of chocolate. She has learnt her craft in Switzerland and continues to innovate and create for the Indian market. She has products for every occasion, be it New Year, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, Diwali, Parsi New Year or others. Her up-market packaging (gift boxes, French-style ballotin boxes) and shapes for children (lollipops, dinosaurs, hearts) have won the hearts of many. Must-haves are the Mint Flakes, Almond Marzipan, Chopped Pista, Rum 'n' Raisin, Bitter Chocolate, Peanut Buttercups, White Hazelnut, Almond Delight, Health Logs and many more. There are over a thousand shapes, thirty-plus flavours, customized fillings and chocolate coverings to choose from. New to the range are the amazing sugar-free chocolate bars - both milk and dark. I also love the 70 per cent dark bar for eating and cooking. My favourite this year has to be the Hazelnut pralines and the organic chocolate wafers. For its young patrons, there are chocolates in interesting shapes, like Milk Puppy, Milk Dinosaur, Chocolate Car, Chocolate House and Puzzle House. You can also buy an attractive Chocolate Paint Set with different colours (all safe) and flavours - for both children and adults - paints you can lick off! Zeba keeps on spinning her fantasies with chocolate, so expect more additions anytime. From time to time, Fantasie organizes chocolate workshops for adults as well as children. Watch out for a new Fantasie shop, chocolate bar and cafe to open in Viman Nagar this year.
