The famous Belgian Chocolate

paragraph image
From the beginning of its history in Belgium, the chocolate was considered as a gift. In 1912, the belgian confectionery created the "praline", a filled chocolate mouthful which perfectly complied with its gift vocation. To protect the delicate nature of the "praline", an adequate packaging has been patented under the name of "Ballotin".
Since that time the "ballotin de pralines" became the perfect gift appreciated in all circumstances.
