This review is brought to you by our guest reviewer, Lexi!
I love chocolate. Look in my pantry at any time and you will find a stash of chocolate in varying forms: cookies, hot cocoa mix, a theatre box of Goobers (chocolate covered peanuts). But my most favorite way to enjoy my most favorite treat is in pure form, a piece of chocolate straight from a pretty box! And this being Valentine’s season, I am in heaven.
I was so very excited to receive a sampling of GuyLian Belgian Chocolates. I had heard of the brand and recognized the box (the stylized writing, the signature seashell shapes), but had never actually tried the delectable treasures hiding inside. I decided to go with the Valentine’s Day feel and first open the box of truffle hearts. I was excited from the moment I read the gold lettering describing “Artisanal Belgian Chocolates”. Even more enticing, the promise of praline (in this case, hazelnut praline) filling. Twelve perfectly shiny chocolate hearts gazed up at me from their individual little holders.
I figured the chocolates would be good; a suitable way to satisfy my craving for a sweet finish to the day. I was wrong. The chocolate was great. A super smooth milk chocolate outer layer covered a silky inner filling. I was surprised that the filling was smooth, no bits of hazelnut that I expected, but was pleasantly surprised. The firm outer shell was a nice contrast to the smooth filling inside.
I was also pleasantly surprised when I turned the box over to read the ingredients and found only seven (and I could pronounce and recognize all of them! It’s good to know GuyLian keeps it real. That also made me feel good about sharing the tiny treasures with my three-year-old, Lillian). The truffle tasted pure, rich and very satisfying.
GuyLian is an artisanal Belgian brand that has over 55 years of producing delicious, quality chocolates. You can surprise your valentine with an “I Love You” Belgian Chocolate Truffle Heart box, or treat yourself to the perfectly-sized two-piece seahorse shaped truffles. I even found a small variety pack at my local 99 cents store, so you can enjoy fine, imported chocolate on any budget!
From this self-proclaimed chocoholic, I highly recommend a delightful chocolate treat from the GuyLian brand. You will not be disappointed!
