Newport Beach, California, June 9, 2008 – Orange County’s only Teuscher Chocolates & Café has expanded and relocated within Fashion Island. The high end chocolatier has been a favorite of locals since opening at the center in 2001.
Teuscher’s signature sweet is the champagne truffle with a cream center of Dom Perignon. In addition, Teuscher offers 18 different truffles, two seasonal truffles, and more than 60 different chocolates. The store also features a variety of elegant and whimsical party favors for all occasions.
All the chocolates and packaging are made in Zurich, Switzerland, where the Teuscher family has been in business for nearly 80 years. Today, Teuscher represents three generations of chocolate making the traditional way: by hand with great attention to quality and ingredients. The chocolates are flown in fresh weekly.
Teuscher also has a coffee bar with numerous specialty drinks, in addition to freshly baked European pastries. The coffee is made with high quality beans, and hot and cold chocolate coffees are made exclusively with Teuscher’s exclusive cocoa powder.
The store is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Teuscher is located adjacent to Carousel Court at Fashion Island and can be reached at (949) 721-1801.
