Forrest Gump famously said: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” As nice as a metaphor can be, it’s not the case for The Prestat Chocolates: lucky owners definitely know what they’ll get morsels of heaven. Prestat Ltd established in 1902 by French émigré Antoine Dufour, but it only became widely available when the new creation was brought to England. Prestat has created a brand of distinct taste that is unparalleled in the world. They have had a long history of celebrity customers from actress Sarah Bernhardt to Princess Diana and Peter Mandelson.


Prestat is affectionately known as the Queen’s chocolate makers, it has a tradition envied by the whole world. The company received royal warrants as purveyors of chocolates to Queen Elizabeth II.Nominated as one of the world’s top three chocolate shops by The Economist, Prestat’s current flagship store is at Princes Arcade, Piccadilly, the brand also opened within the Chocolate Hall of Harrods. Its current range of packaging is the work of designer and artist Kitty Arden,

Today prestat provides the most complete palette of products. They have a unique mark on all their bars with the slogan ‘positive indulgence’, the reason being that the way they process the cocoa retains a lot of antioxidants. A ten gram piece of the Dark chocolate will provide enough anti -oxidants to help combat free radicals. The milk chocolate is a 38% cocoa blend. It’s bursting with robust, rich cocoa flavors with a classic Criollo flavor.

The crest/ coat of arms that is on every one of the products stands for: the best quality, the best service, the best value. Dark or milk whichever takes your fancy, you’re sure to get lost in the velvety chocolate and its indulgent infusions.
