How to Use The Chocolate Swap Group.

Add a forum post about the chocolate(s) you have to swap and the chocolates you are looking for.

To make it easy on everyone, please list in detail what you have and what you are looking for. Please also tell us more or less where you are. City, State, County is enough, nothing more specific than that. Please do not reply to the forum with your real-world e-mail address, phone numbers, chatroom names, or other personally identifiable information.

If you find someone you want to swap chocolate with, send them a message by clicking on Send Message next to their name/avatar next to their post. No link? You may have to friend them first. Send a friend request and tell them the reason you want to friend them is to swap chocolate.

Disclaimer: This is a referral service only. In no way does TheChocolateLife assume any responsibility for the accuracy of the descriptions provided or guarantee the delivery of the chocolate(s) being swapped. Those issues are entirely up to the parties involved. If group members have a problem they can contact Clay Gordon who will attempt to mediate a resolution. The fee for the mediation service is one bar of chocolate - Clay's choice.

Hi there!
I am living in the Netherlands (Rotterdam) and I am looking for someone who's able to get Vosges. I am able to swap for Amedei, Beschle, Prestat, Menakao or Seed & Beans. Please let me know!

Hi everyone, Having been on a few courses in the UK for chocolate making (Chocolate Academy) I have recently moved to Turkey and want to get back into the swing of things. Does anyone have any ideas where I can purchase the range of Callebaut Chocolates in block or pellet formats? Better still if any one has some samples of alternatives it would be appreciated.

This is very interesting group! And I am very much interested to swap. We now have several chocolatiers ( here in my country One of my concern though is mailing/sending as well as receiving. I am from Manila, Philippines and I would like to know the best way to send and receive chocolate. The last time I received truffles from Germany they got melted and mixed up in a not so good package. Then another sad experience was a bar of choco was sent in a bubble envelope with holes and some mice/rats perhaps smelled its aroma and nibbled the envelope trying to get a taste of my chocolate. So I wonder what's the best way to send choco by mails - courier like Fedex/DHL may cost more than a bar/box of chocolates. I would like to be enlightened on this. I am really interested to swap.

Hello, I live in Surabaya, Indonesia.
There are only several chocolates available here.
"Monggo" Chocolate is made by a Belgium chocolatier using Indonesian beans and is made in Jogjakarta.
There are also Theys Chocolate(raw chocolates), and Valrhona here(Collection Grand Crus, plain bars, and equinoxes).
There are also several kinds of commercial chocolates like Guylian, Droste, etc but I doubt you want to swap those chocolates.
If you want to swap any, please let me know.
I have interests in Valrhona, Theo, and Vosges, but I'm open to ideas..=D

Hello, I'm from the U.S. and would like to swap some chocolate. I don't know if Christian is still interested but I can easily get all the brands you named. =)
I like darker bars especially from the Carribean or Madegascar but whatever's new and good is fine by me. I'm vegan so I rarely get truffles (sorry Katherine). I can trade some nice bars like Andrea Stainer's line for some vegan truffles though.

Seems no one has posted in a while but I am interested in a swap. I can swap my truffles for some other locally made artisan truffles. Or if some one lives out of the country I could swap something you would like to get your hands on, provided I could get it- for something interesting from your country like bean to bar or organic.
