Guylian Belgian Chocolate

Guylian Belgian Chocolate

If you are looking for an elegant selection of chocolate, Guylian Belgian Chocolate will not disappoint. Molded into delicate shapes such as a seahorse or a seashell, the chocolate itself is silky, creamy, and delicious.

I tried the Guylian Dark Chocolate yesterday and while I was not surprised to find it delicious, I was surprised to find it had none of the slightly bitter aftertaste I associate with dark chocolate. Zero, zip, nada, none!  It was just a small burst of smooth dark chocolate deliciousness.


Hubby likes dark chocolate but he wanted to try a truffle. The truffles are filled with Guylian's signature hazelnut filling, and they are light and filling at the same time. The truffle did not disappoint, and he went on about it so much that I gave one a try too.  Just as with the dark chocolate, the truffle was luxuriously decadent and it felt like I was eating something very expensive. The good news, I wasn't! Guylian Belgian Chocolate is not only delicious, it is also affordable.

If you see these while you're out and about shopping before the holiday, pick some up to give as gifts. I think these would be so well received by so many different people!! We're giving one of the samples we received to the secretary at each of the schools, one to the weekend mail person, and one to the next door neighbor we haven't yet given a little gift to.  I may pick another few little boxes up to put in the stockings. I'm not sure if they have any at our grocery store (that's the only shopping we have left now), but I'll be on the lookout (it's already written on the list).

I saw a coupon code on the Guylian website today...save 30% on all orders through 12/20 using the code Holiday30.

If you would like to order Guylian Belgian Chocolate online after that date (you can use the code now, but the 30% is the better deal!), you can receive a 10% off discount by using the discount code Chocolate10. The code is good until the end of the 2013 year.
