Bissinger's Bunny!

For the 1st time in quite a few years, I received a chocolate bunny for Easter. It was gluten free, of course! The bunny was solid dark chocolate and from a chocolate company called Bissinger's.

Bissinger's is one of the last handcrafted chocolatiers in the world. They have been making their fine French confections for more than 350 years!

The Bissinger family began creating their delicacies for European royalty in 17th-century Paris, France. Karl Bissinger left France in 1845 for Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1927, his son opened the 1st Bissinger shop in Saint Louis on McPherson Avenue. That store closed in 2007, but a replica will be rebuilt soon in the popular City Museum in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Most of Bissinger's chocolates are gluten free and they have a huge selection of chocolates to choose from. Currently, they have "Economic Relief Packages" where you can buy any 5 items in this category and receive 3 FREE or buy any 2 and receive 1 FREE!

For more information on which products are gluten free, feel free to contact them at orders@bissingers.com or at 1-800-325-8881 or visit their website at www.bissingers.com.

  1. 9 years later but a cautionary note. If your a Celiac and Bissinger's posts this on their main site and their chocolates state this, the ingredients may be gluten free but they are made in a facility that uses WHEAT and thus your risking cross contamination if you eat. Just have to balance the review.
