Chocolate is food right?

So, in researching for our November trip I was reading several foodie blogs about chocolate and specifically those in/around Lyon. One place mentioned was Bernard Dufour. I've searched online for a website for more information (like an exact location) but only find a Bernard Dufoux. I'm guessing they are not the same place, but any help would be appreciated!

        Thank you for the input. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I had already searched & my question was more about the "r" which I'd seen used in reviews and the "x" used when I searched for more information. There is one on your list I hadn't considered, so again thanks!

          i understand now..thought u were having trouble googling....

          1. re: DaTulip

            From srsone's list, l hope Bernachon is on yours

            1. re: Delucacheesemonger

              It is a short list as it will only be a day trip, but planing to go to Bernachon (my #1 pick actually!), Dufour/Dufoux, and Weiss. I'm also planning a stop in Paris at L'Etoile d'Or mainly for the Henri le Roux caramels, but I know she carries Bernachon too.

              Thanks for the tips!

              1. re: DaTulip

                Ms Akibo carries the Bernachon bars but not the odd and smaller candies. That said, she is so wonderful so is a must.

                1. re: DaTulip

                  The Pate d'Amande Pistache and the Kalouga are absolutely unmissable!!!

                  1. re: prashant

                    Now noted in my book. Thanks much! The little dark choco rounds with the gold flecks I saw on their website also look yummy.

            2. re: srsone

              imho, Bernachon's chocolates are head and shoulders above any others I've eaten. (and I've had lots of great chocolate.

              1. re: ChefJune

                Some opinions here of folks I respect highly! We'll definately make the Bernachon stop. Any insights on what's not to be missed in their non-bar choco selections?

                  My dad would've killed for their truffles. I have to say they're my favorites.
