Sweet Splendor: Discovering Dubai’s Best Chocolate Stores

Did you know that the world consumed around 7.5 million tons of chocolate in 2023 alone? That’s got to keep Willy Wonka busy!  

Fortunately, Dubai has a chocolate store catering to various preferences, from classic milk chocolate to sophisticated praline. 

If you’re ready for a sugar high, let’s go chocolate shopping below, shall we?

Al Nassma

Website: http://www.al-nasma.com/ 

Address: 12 39 Street – Deira – Dubai – United Arab Emirates

Contact details: +971 55 538 4322

Operating hours: 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Price: AED 34.89 per bar

Al Nassma, the home of the world’s first camel milk chocolate and one of Dubai’s best, has been crafting chocolate delights since 2008.

Because of its healthy goodness, word spread quickly across the world, and now you can already buy Al Nassma chocolate on almost every continent!

And get this: Al Nassma doesn’t just buy camel milk; they have their own Camelicous Farm in Umm Nahad, with over 3,000 camels strutting around.

Here’s the scoop on how they craft their chocolate: each bar of their whole camel milk chocolate uses about 150 ml of fresh camel milk. They freeze-dry it, hop on a plane to Austria, and that’s where the chocolatey wonders happen.

For easy reference, All Nassma sells 70-gram camel milk chocolate bars in these varieties:

  • Whole milk, nuts and cocoa (70% dark)
  • Macadamia, oranges, and dates
  • Arabia (mixed with Arabian spices like cinnamon and cardamom)
  • Camel caravan with macadamia, nut and honey cream filling
  • Camel-shaped milk chocolates
  • Hollow camel figures and pralines

Pro tip:
If you’re buying camel milk chocolate as a souvenir from Al Nassma, choose the camel-shaped gift box or the hollow camel-shaped milk chocolate to symbolize your trip to Dubai.
