Stockholm's best chocolate shops

Eating chocolate releases endorphins which make us feel good, it includes a caffeine-like substance that gives us energy and it's also said to increase our life expectancy. People consume chocolate all over the world; we eat it on its own, use it in drinks and pastries or even as an ingredient in savoury dishes. Moreover, chocolate is always a very well-received gift. We've rounded up the best chocolate shops in Stockholm for when the craving takes hold - or you need a fail-safe present.
