There’s nothing quite as decadent as indulging in a velvety piece of chocolate that instantly melts in your mouth. Partaking in the sinful pleasure of alluring your senses with chocolaty goodness is a pastime well worth its investment.

With its dark mysterious power to alter moods, enhance a holiday, and illicit sensuality, chocolate is a delectable treat that is always adored. Although the competition out there can be stiff when it comes to chocolate, undeniably, no one knows chocolate better than Godiva Chocolates from Brussels in Belgium.

Origins of the Godiva Chocolate Company

Joseph Draps was the master chocolatier who brought the world Godiva chocolates. With a vision of creating luxurious chocolates with rich cream fillings, he opened the Godiva chocolate company in 1926. It was at the suggestion of Draps’ wife that the company be named after the legendary and courageous, but ever so lovely, Lady Godiva. In addition to being named after a seductive legend, the name Godiva also means “God’s gift” in old English. With a passion for selling chocolates as elegant as their namesake, Godiva boutiques were immediately set apart from traditional chocolate companies.

The Simple Luxury of Godiva Chocolates

To buy a piece of Godiva chocolate is an experience much like buying an exquisite piece of jewelry. Selection is made from display cases, weighed, than placed delicately in a gold box with imported gold ribbon. The little gold box, also known as a Gold Ballotin, French for “small elegant box of chocolates” has become a well-known luxury icon. Similar to Tiffany & Co’s little blue box, this tiny symbol has made Godiva’s chocolate well known for a high-end product with a high-end taste! Treating yourself to a bit of Godiva chocolate will please your palette and make you feel just as luxurious as the package it came in.
