Bonjour à toutes et à tous.

Does anyone know what we'd call in English chocolat en pistoles? Here's a photo of what they look like.

Merci beaucoup d'avance !

P.S. They're not "chocolate drops" (or "chips") of the sort used in making chocolate chip cookies; they're about 20 times larger than that.

    That's a possible idea, Keith. I'm wondering, though, if it's a term of art in the chocolate business. I've never heard it myself, but I wouldn't know.

    (One problem with all my translation work is that I cannot just pick a word that sounds right: I have to find out what words are used in English in the industry in question. That sometimes requires quite a bit of research!)

    EDIT: I just went to English version of the chocolate maker's website, and guess what? They reference 1kg packs of our exclusive Pistoles™. So it's a trademark! :rolleyes:

    Thanks to you and MadamePeel for your efforts!

    Salut LMorland,

    C'est une marque avec une majuscule, mais sans, non. ;)
    Une pistole à la base est une pièce de monnaie (comme le louis d'or) et les pistoles de chocolat sont appelées comme ça parce qu'elles ont la même forme.
    Je trouve quelques milliers de résultats sur le net avec « chocolate pastilles ». Mais n'étant pas spécialiste, je ne saurais te dire si ça correspond exactement à ce que tu cherches...

    [...] Here's a photo I found, which you can compare with the one in my original post. [...]
    C'est malin, maintenant j'ai une méchante envie de chocolat ! :p (et il est 4h du matin ici ! :eek:)

    Je sais bien que tu excluais « chocolate chips » d'emblée mais j'ai trouvé aussi dans mes recherches des « gourmet chocolate chips »...
