Neuhaus ~ Taste of belgium

Belgium is considered one of the world’s best places to live or visit for chocolate lovers. It owes this reputation in part to Neuhaus, which was established in 1857 in Brussels by Jean Neuhaus. Originally a chemist, Neuhaus turned to confectionery, deciding to specialise in chocolate over time. In 1912, he developed the very first “praline”, a chocolate filled with fresh cream. These chocolates, which soon proved a hit with customers, were packed in a “ballotin”, or gift box, designed by Louise Agostini, the wife of Jean Neuhaus Jr. But the family’s history also has a strong link with Belgium’s history, as King Leopold II and other crowned heads soon found their way to the shop in Galérie de la Reine.

Neuhaus recently launched Taste of Belgium, a unique tasting experience that will take you on a journey through Belgium and its history. The chocolate maker has combined 11 iconic chocolates that highlight its expertise in a special gift box. All the chocolates are named after members of the Belgian royal family or other famous Belgians, such as the leading Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta.
A unique opportunity for chocolate lovers to revisit the classics.

Café gourmand

Can you think of a better time to enjoy a sweet treat than with your coffee? There’s nothing like a bit of chocolate to balance the bitterness of your coffee. It’s also a sweet way to end your meal. But remember, don’t just settle for any chocolate! The Belgian brand Café-Tasse, which was established in 1989, is one of the leading suppliers of chocolate squares. It uses only the best cocoa beans for its “Neapolitans” or thin chocolate squares, which are individually wrapped in eco-friendly Kraft paper. An easy way to recognise the Café-Tasse squares too.

Café-Tasse likes to innovate and regularly launches novel products for Belgian chocolate lovers. The latest addition to the range, namely dried fruit coated in chocolate, is just as refined as its chocolate and comes in a small beige paper bag, like all the brand’s other products. If you want something different than the usual orangettes or orange peel, why not indulge in some lemon peel coated in dark chocolate? The crunchy almonds coated in milk chocolate and dusted with cocoa powder are just as tasty and simply irresistible.
