Goldhelm Schokolade from Erfurt (Thuringia) is now one of the top chocolateries in Germany.
In the manufactory of the company’s founder and chocolatier Alexander Kühn, there are over 90 unusual chocolate varieties on offer. The ingredients at Goldhelm are mostly local. Kühn buys apples, pears and plums at the market and he sometimes even collects local herbs himself. When it’s asparagus season, then there’s asparagus chocolate. The oranges for the Campari-orange-chocolate, however, come from Mallorca. But, the most important ingredient of all is the chocolate. Kühn therefore conches the chocolate for at least three days, and then specially prepares the couvertures from selected manufacturers.
