The Belgian Chocolate House-Belgian Treasures

Belgian sweet treasures

During the months of September and October, we have chosen to put the treasures of Belgian expertise, in terms of chocolate and biscuits, in the spotlight.

The Belgian Chocolate House-Neuhaus

Neuhaus, which was established in Brussels in 1857, is the oldest Belgian chocolate brand. The chocolate house invented the famous chocolate as well as the ballotin or box in which the chocolates are presented. Its iconic “Caprice” and “Tentation” nougatine chocolates, which are filled with cream and enrobed with chocolate, were created for the 1958 World Expo and continue to make gourmets around the world salivate when they think of them.

The Belgian Chocolate House-Corné Port-Royal

Corné Port-Royal is another iconic Brussels chocolate maker. In 1935, shortly after Maurice Corné established his artisan chocolate shop, he created the legendary “Manon sucre”, a combination of whipping cream, nuts and nougatine, enrobed with confectioner’s sugar. An irresistible treat which you really should try!

 

More recently, Galler has demonstrated considerable dynamism and innovation. The brand was the first to create a 70% cocoa chocolate and is famous for the wide range of chocolate bars it sells, in colorful packaging.

The Belgian Chocolate House-Jules Destrooper

 

Jules Destrooper, a company that has been in family hands for four generations, is Belgium’s most famous biscuit maker. Its founder, an artisan baker who also owned an exotic spice shop, created the famous almond thins, which became an international success, from 1911 onwards. Since then, Jules Destrooper has been named an official supplier to the Belgian court.The Belgian Chocolate House-Dandoy

 

Like Jules Destrooper, Maison Dandoy is a family company, that was established in Brussels in the nineteenth century. The biscuit maker is mainly known for its fabulous speculoos and the unrivalled quality of its products. For over 180 years, this Belgian pastry brand has been an absolute must.

But where can you find all these treats? At The Belgian Chocolate House, of course, where all the gourmets like to shop!
