Hi. My name is Melissa. I'm a chocoholic. That about sums me up in a nutshell, as I'm sure some (is not most) of you can relate. But I can honestly say, that I have never had chocolate as indulgent as Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolate.
In 1958, Guy, a Belgian Chocolatier who crafted handmade chocolate truffles, married his love, Liliane. The same year, they joined their names again in their company, Chocolaterie Guylian. Today, Guylian crafts the finest Belgian Chocolate Truffles for sale in countries all over the world.
The Belgian Chocolate Truffles with Signature Hazelnut Filling are masterfully marbled masterpieces. The marbling thoroughly combines the flavors of white & dark chocolates and white & milk chocolates. The Signature Hazelnut Filling is actually still made in small-batch copper kettles by Guylian's master chocolatiers in Belgium, giving it the most decadent taste. I thought I was going to need an intervention to keep me from eating every single truffle in one sitting!
Extra Dark Belgian Chocolate Truffles are sinfully delicious. I've had dark chocolate before & that alone is amazing. But Guylian's extra dark chocolate with 74% cocoa, filled with a chocolate truffle center...I have no words. And that speaks volumes.
Vanilla Belgian Chocolate Truffles are perfect for those who like to keep their chocolates pretty basic. These Belgian milk & white chocolates are filled with a vanilla & white chocolate truffle center. I had the hubs not so daring grandma try these, well, she ate half the box so I think they were a hit!
Then there was the No Sugar Added Belgian Chocolate Bars. I was really eager to find out how these would taste. Well, they tasted like chocolate! Seriously, I couldn't tell the difference. These chocolate bars are sweetened with Maltitol, a 100% natural alternative to sugar. Major plus about these, is that they're even diabetic friendly.

I know by now you have to be wondering what's up with the seahorses & seashells. I mean, that's not exactly what you picture when you hear "Belgian Chocolate Truffles". But there is a wonderful reason for them. Since 1999, Guylian has been the major sustaining sponsor of Project Seahorse, an organization committed to the conservation & sustainable use of the world's coastal marine ecosystems. Who knew eating chocolate could help seahorses?!
