Chocolate Jolonch is the oldest chocolate factory in Agramunt and the only two historical factories still works today. Since the late eighteenth century, the company has been passed from generation to generation.
Throughout its history, chocolate has been characterized mainly by Jolonch manufacturing use of the chocolate stone, considered the native variety of chocolate Agramunt. Interestingly, the name “stone” comes not, as one might think, from the hardness of the chocolate, but from the granite formerly used by artisans in the process of preparing to heat and grind cocoa until it becomes a liquid mass.
Jolonch production is entirely handmade and high quality. The reputation of Jolonch Chocolate and chocolate Agramunt is shown by the fact that President Lluís Companys, before being shot by Franco’s army in 1940, as a last will requested a piece of chocolate (stone) Agramunt.
