The other day, my tutor and I were treating ourselves to some hot chocolate at a very popular confectioner's shop. Whenever I go in there, I always see boxes of chocolates with the title, "Cloches d'Annecy". "Why pieces of chocolate in the shape of bells?", I asked my tutor, who's lived in Annecy pretty much all of her life. She had no idea so she asked one of the women behind the counter. This woman then handed me a piece of paper with the reason behind the boxes of bell-shaped chocolates. In the town next to us, Sevrier, there's a bell factory, Paccard. This world reputable factory is famous for making: the 20 lb. Savoyarde at Sacre-Coeur, the Joan of Arc at the Catherdral of Rouen (I'm not familiar with this one), other bells in cathedrals all over the world, and copies of the Liberty Bell for each US state capital.
