Chocolates always are!
Even though, in this part of the world the common perception is that Swiss chocolates are the best, its the other way around in Europe and US. It’s the Belgian chocolates that are considered to be an ace up. There are so many small manufacturers in Belgium specializing in their own creation and variety.
Yes, that’s true. When I went to Belgium, than I came to know that it is more devout place to chocolates! Its always in air everywhere.
