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!
