I grew up in the south of Holland, near the Belgian border. Every other weekend we visited towns like Antwerp, Brussels and Bruges. The reason I'm telling you this: I know my way around Belgian chocolates. Trust me, these are the best. First the taste. Not too sweet and not too bitter. Each and every one a heavenly delight. The fillings soft and soooo delicious, any taste will do. The classic truffles, the crunchy Caprice, the Manons with the mousse au chocolat - hmmmmm!!!! where's my BOX?! As to the quality of the cacao: Top Notch - enough said! This small package is a good start. It looks nice (also as a gift) and there are enough for your love and you (that is if she - or he - is still willing to share after having tried the first). And it is strong enough so it doesn't get crushed along the way. The price? Don't compare it with cheap chocolate. That's humiliating. Try it and then decide if it's worth it. I am sure you will agree: these chocolates are priceless! ENJOY! Where is my BOX!!!!????!!!!! Give it BACK! I WANT MOOOOORE!!!!!!

Neuhaus is a manufacturer of luxurious Belgian chocolates, delicious biscuits and artisanal ice cream. The company was founded in Brussels in 1857 by Jean Neuhaus, a Swiss immigrant, who opened a first store in the Galeries St.-Hubert. In 1912, his grandson, Jean Neuhaus II, invented the chocolate bonbon or 'praline'. Three years later, the 'ballotin' was invented to avoid that the pralines were crushed together.
Today, Neuhaus is more popular than ever and has over 1000 selling points in 40 countries. All Neuhaus delicacies are still made in Vlezenbeek, near Brussels, and are exported worldwide. In 2000, the company has been named Accredited Supplier to the Belgian Crown.
