2014 has began and with it has came all the hopes and promises that the new year brings with it. Each year brings that promise of a better healthier me and so far this year I am doing a good job. But I do have to share with you on how I spent my last month of 2013. We all know that with Christmas comes all the good sweets and homemade candies and cookies.
This year was no exception. One day John and I were out and when we got home sitting on our front porch was a box. In the box was a cooler filled with some of the best looking candies I had ever seen. who wouldn’t be excited over that? We had purchased a box of candy earlier that week and once these candies showed up, the other box was pushed to the side.
These candies I am talking about were Belgian Chocolates and they come from a company called “Guylian” I really don’t mean to jump around here, but I do love how this company got their name. Especially since knowing Valentines Day is coming up in a month, I think this story is kind of romantic and fits the occasion. Here is how it goes:

Guy was passionate about making truffles. He met Liliane and fell in love. In the late 1950’s the got married and decided to join their names together and created the name of the company Guylian. Together they created the seashell look for the truffle and the signature hazelnut praline filling and liliane created the shiny marbelized look, Truly artistic and truly romantic.
As many of you know my husband is originally from Holland and I am from Kentucky. While I am usually easy to please he seems to have more shall I say of high quality taste buds. I don’t know if that is just him or if that is a European thing. Once he seen these chocolates were from Belgian he was very excited. He knew the quality was already going to be great and once he tried them he agreed with himself. He was a very happy person! And so was I!
We had the pleasure of trying different products from Guylian. Products such as milk or dark chocolate no sugar added chocolate bars. I was skeptical about these and was I was surprised when these were both great! I was never a fan of dark chocolate and now Guylian is the only place I will eat dark chocolate from.
