Gift Suggestions: Guylian Chocolate Artisanal Truffles and Chocolates

Gift Ideas: Guylian Belgian Chocolates

You’ve likely seen Guylian Artisanal Chocolates, I know I have. They’re the cute little chocolate seashells and seahorses in the fine chocolate and specially candy section of your grocery store. In fact, I’ve seen them for years but for some reason I don’t remember ever trying them. I’m not sure why, but now that I have, I’m hooked on them!

So what’s so special about these chocolates? We’ll, they’re made from 100% pure dark and white Belgian chocolate with an amazing slow-roasted Mediterranean hazelnut truffle center. The combination is so rich and creamy and balanced so beautifully! They also offer other chocolates including truffles, dark chocolate, and an assortment of chocolate boxes so there’s a size and flavor perfect for every occasion. Specially wrapped Guylian chocolate packages are available for holiday gift giving as well!

What I didn’t know about the chocolates is that they date back to the 1950’s when a fellow named Guy married a woman named Liliane. To honor their love, they combined their names and created an original handmade recipe with their signature truffle recipe. I adore the story behind the name and it doesn’t hurt that now I can pronounce it (Gee-Lee-Ann).

Guylian Artisanal Chocolate Make Great Stocking Stuffers

While I’m a straight-up chocolate eater, some people prefer to combine their chocolate with gourmet coffee, tea, wine, or cheese. If you’re one, Guylian offers some chocolate pairing suggestions including a beer suggestion.

Guylian also offers a “no sugar added” bar which I originally thought was a baking bar. Instead, it’s a bar of chocolate sweetened with maltitol. It’s an ingredient I’m going to have to check in to before I enjoy it so I can’t comment on the taste just yet.

What I love about this premium chocolate company  beyond its fabulous sweets,  is that they choose to make their products from Fair Trade chocolate – I’m always happy to support companies who find value it treating their suppliers well.
