Exploring Patagonia - Ruta 40 - Bariloche: Chocolate gallore

Yes, Bariloche is Argentina´s chocolate wonderland with fierce competition between Swiss, German,Austrian and even Russian families that set up their chocolate stores.

One of the classic firms that has developed into a chain of stores is the "Chocolatería del Turista" which also carries Ice cream, for those occasional hot days during the summer.
I must say that I enjoyed very much the "Apfel strudel" flavour, that they produce.

Now for something local, try the "Chocolate en Rama" which is a branch like stick that collapses in your mouth as the chocolate melts. You will find this all over Bariloche, from home made versions to industrial ones, that are actually quite good.
