One of Switzerland’s most successful chocolate products, which is named after the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, is still going strong after seven decades…
For centuries now Cammile Bloch’s ‘Ragusa’, which is the Italian name for the city of Dubrovnik, has been a favourite of chocolate lovers in Switzerland and around the globe. The traditional recipe from 1942 is still in use today, unchanged. The combination of hazelnut filling, enriched with crunchy hazelnuts, between two thin layers of dark chocolate is still as popular as ever. So how did it get its name?
