Have you ever been at a loss of words to describe chocolate? Neither have I.
When I received my chocolate, I couldn’t decide where to start – there were so many choices! So while Cody was gone, I ripped open a small box of the truffles and went to work.
The truffles are so rich and creamy. I almost didn’t want to eat them because they’re so cute!
I have to admit, I ate 2 packages before Cody got home. Each package only had 2 truffles AND I had to share with Landon – so I’m sure after sharing I only got to eat 3.
Yes, I’m giggling right now thinking “ONLY 3″. Hah!
Anyways, once Cody got home I decided to break open the Dark Chocolate No Sugar Added Chocolate Bar. WOW! I was in heaven! Remember when I did my review on Newman’s Own Organics and I had the dark chocolate bar? Well, I didn’t like it – it was WAY too bitter. Guylian’s chocolate bar was bitter (like dark chocolate is) but it was rich. I didn’t share any with Cody. I let my mom have some though – being diabetic and all I knew her opinion would be HUGE.
Next I tried the Milk Chocolate Bar. It was so smooth. Just like good chocolate should be.
I made s’mores with the Milk Chocolate Bar. I like to try different chocolate on my s’mores and I am SO glad I used the Guylian Milk Chocolate Bar – I am getting more for the 4th of July.
I was on their website a picture of coffee & the truffles on a plate. I decided, why not put a truffle – or in my case 2 – into my morning coffee?! It was good, but a little sticky LOL. Meaning, the truffle melted to the bottom of my cup and I had to stir it a lot to mix the truffle well. The work was worth it though.
Cody says, “All of the chocolate was decadent, smooth, delicious and nothing like the others. I know not one chocolate it could be compared to. It’s a chocolate you can appreciate and taste even after swallowing.”
He also said that out of all 3 samples, his favorite was the truffles.
My mom said, “Very creamy…perfect combination of sweetness and chocolate flavor. A real treat.”
So now that you have heard me ramble on about what I think of their chocolate, why don’t I share a little more about the history of Guylian Chocolates.
I have to say, I always thought that Guylian was named after the founder Guy and the fact that it’s Belgian Chocolate. I was wrong – and I feel a little silly admitting it.
In 1958, Guy and Liliane joined their names, both in marriage and in their company name creating Chocolaterie Guylian; 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.
If you look at the first picture above, you will see the signature ‘G’ stamped into the truffle. Each truffle is stamped with that ‘G’ which holds their guarantee that “each Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolate Truffle is made just the way our founders Guy & Liliane intended.”
Did you know, Guylian participates in Project Seahorse?
Guylian has been the major sustaining sponsor of Project Seahorse since 1999 donating more than $1.5 million.
“This organization is committed to conservation and sustainable use of the world’s coastal marine ecosystems. Saving the seahorses means saving our seas!”
