Before I do my review about this amazing tasting chocolate you need to know the story about how this became Guylian.
The Guylian Story
Guy Foubert was a passionate Belgian Chocolatier making handmade chocolate truffles in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. In 1958, Guy and Liliane joined their names, both in marriage and in their company name creating Chocolaterie Guylian; a small, artisanal chocolate maker. Today, Guylian crafts the finest authentic Belgian chocolate truffles, selling them to chocolate lovers in Belgium and in more than 100 countries across the world.
Guylian “ultra-indulgent” luxurious chocolate seashells are 100% pure, silky smooth, dark and white Belgian chocolate and are filled with our rich & creamy signature hazelnut filling. The Guylian brand dates back to the late 1950’s when Guy Foubert, a passionate Belgian chocolataire married his love, Liliane, who then joined names creating Chocolaterie Guylian. Today, Guylian crafts the finest authentic Belgian Chocolate Truffles, utilizing the original handmade recipe of Guy and Liliane. Our original signature truffle recipe is still made in small-batch copper kettles exclusively by Guylian’s Master Chocolatiers in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.
Ok, so on with my review. I've had a great opportunity of receiving several boxes of these delicious chocolate. I can remember my very first Guylian. My mom bought it at this store that was closing and I was in love ever since. That was about 20 years ago. I've said this enough times. I am not a big fan of sweets, but this is something I would never say no to. I can honestly say that this is by far my favorite chocolate out there, and for me to say that, it must be good.
I wasn't going to share but, how could I possibly eat all these. So, I shared, lol. I gave some to my girlfriend, my mom and a box even went to the Philippines to my Grandma ( I sent her the fancy one with the bow for Christmas).
Someone asked me why this chocolate is different and why I love it so much. I just tell them because it's well made and it actually taste divine. The smell alone would make me want to lick the box. It does look too pretty to eat, but it still ends up in my mouth. The texture is rich and so creamy that it melts in your mouth like butter.
Here's the cool part. The President of Guylian Company, Mr. Cobb was nice enough to do a giveaway to one of the lucky readers / followers of my blog and receive a boxful of these delicious chocolates.

More cool fact about Guylian:
1. Did you know? Cocoa butter has a low melting point (just below body temperature), so the moment you first touch a Guylian Chocolate, you can feel it start to melt. As you place the Guylian chocolate in your mouth, it creates a luxuriously creamy texture that is meant to be slowly savoured.
2. Guylian has been the major sustaining sponsor of Project Seahorse since 1999 donating more than $1.5 million. Please visit their link HERE.
