I was recently given the pleasure of trying Guylian Belgian Chocolates. My first impression of the company was this little note that was included in the box:
In 1958 Guy and Liliane joined their names, both in marriage and in their company name creating Chocolaterie Guylian: a small, artisanal chocolate maker in Belgium.
Even more impressive than the story behind the company is the taste of it's praline truffles. My husband and I absolutely adored them! They were so rich and creamy that one or two truffles each night after dinner satisfied my sweet tooth (unlike cheap chocolates which leave you wanting more after an entire box). Not only are they delicious, they also make a truly unique chocolate experience as the truffles are in the shape of seashells and sea horses. Everything about these chocolates make them a beautiful gift for a hostess or significant other.
We also had the opportunity to try the Guylian no sugar added chocolate bars in both the dark and milk chocolate varieties. After tasting the truffles, we had high expectations for the chocolate bars and they certainly met those expectations! I am a dark chocolate addict and my husband likes milk chocolate and we've found that it's difficult to find one brand that excels in both varieties, yet we were both very pleased with what Guylian had to offer. I think many people, including ourselves, have come to view "no sugar added" as a healthier but less tasty alternative to traditional sweets, but I think I wouldn't have even known that they were "no sugar added" if I hadn't read the packaging.
