We know that chocolate is addictive. We know it might be fattening because it contains a lot of sugar. Does that stop us? Of course not!
Chocolate is the favorite addiction of both old and young and you will find almost any kind of chocolate to please even the most pretentious of us. However, ask foodie travelers where the best chocolate in the world comes from and most will tell you that Belgian chocolate is among the finest, if not the greatest out there!
Belgian chocolate, as we know it today, originated in the 19th century. However, chocolate itself has been present in Belgium for about three centuries. There are several big brands of Belgian chocolate today, including Guylian, Côte d’Or, Godiva chocolates and, of course, our exquisite Chocomeli chocolates. Even Leonidas, which is considered to be the cheapest out of all the major brands of Belgian chocolate, has a vast following worldwide.
This can be due to the quality of Belgian chocolate, but also to the variety available. Unlike many other types that stick to common combinations of caramel, raisins, and a few kinds of nuts, Belgian chocolate comes in almost every possible combination.
Just go to our online catalog. You’ll find Belgian truffles, pralines, candies, figurines, white and even ruby chocolate, and many more. If you can’t find anything you want, you just aren’t as in love with chocolate as you may think!
The melt-in-your-mouth consistency of Belgian chocolate has made it a favorite for use in chocolate fountains. It is the new craze for parties, weddings and several other social events. Chocolate fountains are simply chocolate heating machines, which are then carried vertically before flowing over a waterfall. Belgian chocolate is typically high in cocoa butter, giving it a naturally wonderful consistency recommended for chocolate fountains.
