Product Description

Here's a translated description of the game (or at least the theme) from the publisher:

Chocolate, nuts, fruit, cream: Producing chocolates and other sweets can be wonderful -- but it's important to collect the right ingredients in order to create these small delicacies. Playing the highest valued card doesn't always win. The staff working in the kitchen of these Parisian chocolatiers are rather unusual: cockroaches, dung beetles and other crawling creatures.

Ergo, Maus au Chocolat is not the Ratatouille card game, but merely a mirror image from a parallel universe. In a post on his website, designer Knut Happel explains that the game originally involved spices in Indian markets, but that theme was a no-go for the Kosmos line. La Cookaracha was one title under consideration, but in the end the mice reigned supreme.
