Russell Stover/Whitman's Sampler Quality at Champagne/Caviar Prices
Apr 2021
I was born and raised in Geneva , Switzerland and I know my chocolate

I am a true chocolate connoisseur. Trust me this is PURE GARBAGE under the guise of "fine European chocolate " It tastes like dollar store Balmers brand !

Don't waste your hard earned money Their chocolate tastes like wax It is no

better than Russell Stover/ Whitman's Sampler and they are charging

astronomical obscene prices for substandard poor quality tasteless garbage

The Debrands attempted to flag and remove my last post therefore I am reposting

what I have to say so that unsuspecting potential customers don't get ripped off

They also don't disclose a full and thorough comprehensive list of all their ingredients that they use to manufacture their product

Go buy yourself some Hershey's Nuggets or a Cadbury bar You will save

yourself a lot of money and aggravation and enjoy it so much more than this disgusting product

(I cant even call it chocolate it's so awful)

What happened to their delicious hot chocolate??
Nov 2020 • Solo
I stopped in to the Coldwater Road location last week for a hot chocolate. I hadn't had one of theirs in years, but I remembered it being delicious. I spent over $7 for something that didn't taste any better than Swiss Miss! Very disappointed!

Complex Chocolates Like Fine Wine
Dec 2019
I have had an appetite and an appreciation for chocolate beginning as a young boy with all of the well known chocolate candies available at all the convenience stores that all Americans have access to everywhere you go, these are all good chocolates. I had elevated my chocolate choices to Belgium Chocolates as my perception was this chocolate was more complex. I had been fortunate to receive as a holiday gift a box of DeBrands Chocolate Truffles. Upon receiving the box my first impression was the beauty of the boxed chocolates. Upon tasting them I had not ever tasted such delicious complex rich chocolates. Since that first box I have only ever purchased these chocolates not only for myself I give them as gifts in the same way I came to know this chocolate. The boxes that I send out are appreciated in the same way I experienced DeBrand. This is in my opinion the best chocolate.

High End Treats
Aug 2020
Hubby has a real love for chocolate and he wanted to try DeBrand while in this area. The shop on Coldwater was lovely with attentive staff. We asked if the chocolate was Swiss, Belgian etc and all they could say is that they are "fine chocolates"...little more staff education would be nice! We chose some truffles and some regular chocolates as well. The truffles were huge and quite a big sweet bite; we preferred the smaller chocolates. The caramels and hazelnut creams were very nice. Overall, a very delicious chocolate but at the very high end of the price range. If you're a chocolate lover, buy yourself a few pieces as a treat. Oh, the boxes are mad thick and sturdy...I will be keeping them for other uses!

Delicious stop
Aug 2020 • Solo
While in Ft Wayne on business I was served the most delicious cookie with chocolate on top. I was told it was a Ft Wayne delicacy and introduced to DeBrand fine chocolates. Before heading home we stopped and I purchased more of the cookies to take home as well as a caramel latte (which was delicious). I’ll definitely be ordering more chocolates. They are truly divine!!

Worthwhile splurge
Jun 2020 • Family
My son and I stopped by to grab some chocolates on a visit. The chocolates are on the higher side, as far as pricing. But... I think you get what you pay for and everything we got was absolutely delectable! It’s a beautiful bulking as well. If you want to splurge for some high quality treats, go for it!

Go ahead and wreck your diet!

Besides takeout chocolates, DeBrand's has a sit-down area to order drinks and desserts. The ice cream is fabulous, and the toppings make it extra special. We also like the gelato. Service is great. You can also take a tour (at certain times) for $5; they then give you a coupon for $5 off your purchase in the store.

master chocolatier
Dec 2019
What can be said about master chocolatiers? Tried a truffle but REALLY enjoyed the hot chocolate. Liked it so much I came back again the next day. They have tours, I didn't have time but wish I did, and when i come back to fort wayne, I'll take it. One of the best chocolates i've had outside of Belize.

Even years after leaving ft Wayne I stay loyal to Debrands
Dec 2019 • Solo
I Used to live in Ft Wayne for 13 years DeBrands was always my go to get out trouble card. they trump a bouquet of flowers any day of the week.

I now live in Tennessee and had some employees talking about how great some local chocolate was. Placed a order that will arrive in a few days they have no idea how badly I'm about to ruin chocolate for them knowing if they want anything this good they will have to order it from Indiana of all place haha.
