Three days before Christmas, I received a box marked "perishable" and knew right away what I was going to find inside...
Guylain Belgium Chocolates!
To say that Christmas came early would be an understatement! I received a sampling of so many different varieties of Guylain Artisanal Belgium Chocolates that I had enough to share with my family - everyone was super excited to get chocolates in their goody bags come Christmas morning.
A little about Guylain chocolates, in case you aren't familiar with the brand...
Guy Foubert and his wife Liliane of Sint-Niklaas, Belgium created Chocolaterie Guylian in 1958; a small, artisanal chocolate maker. Today, Guylian crafts the finest authentic Belgian chocolate truffles, selling them to chocolate lovers in Belgium and in more than 100 countries across the world.
Each luxurious chocolate seashell is marbled with 100% pure, silky smooth milk, dark or white Belgian chocolate. They are filled with a rich, decadent, and luxuriously creamy chocolate truffle; the original handmade recipe of Guy & Liliane.
The Guylain signature truffle recipe is still made in small-batch copper kettles exclusively by Guylian's Master Chocolatiers in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium!
Why the seashell shaped chocolate? Guylain has been a major sustaining sponsor of Project Seahorse since 1999, donating more than $1.5 million. Project Seahorse is a marine conservation project and you can learn more about it here.
Of course Guylain Belgium Chocolates are perfect to enjoy on their own, but they also pair wonderfully with wine, handcrafted beer, coffee and tea!
I ate a few just straight out of the box as a decadent dessert on Christmas night!
to say I love chocolate is a total understatement. those look too good!!!
I'll be hosting a giveaway for a set of chocolate from Guylain in a week or so! 🙂
Pretty sure I'd eat the entire box in a sitting!

Oh yum...I could use some chocolate right now.
They are beautiful! Made my mouth water, just to see the pics.
I had these once a long time ago, and omg, it was so hard to share them with my then-coworker!!! And yes, I LOVE chocolate.
Guylain chocolates are my absolute (second) favorite chocolate ever!!!!! (I had to say second because I'm Dutch and currently snacking on DeHeer bittersweet chocolate - so to say that Guylain was my number one would be blasphemy or treason or cause me to choke....)
Thanks for reminding me that I need to get out and get some of these!! (and, just to note, they are still RIDICULOUSLY delicious when you find them at places like Tuesday Morning and Marshalls!)
Cheers! Happy New Year!

I love the sea shell shapes they have, too cute! And they look super delicious! What a wonderful package to receive!
Those look so yummy!!! I love that they look so much better than brown blobs. Awesome!
Those look so delicious!
Yum! I have had chocolates that looked like seashells like this before, these look SO much better though!
Those are one of our favorite chocolates! They taste so much like the European chocolates we left behind when we moved to the US.
