Guylian makes a delicious gift! (Review & Giveaway)

I was NOT compensated for this review/giveaway. I received the products pictured below FREE to review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Your experience may differ.
When you of premium chocolate, you probably think of those commercials where women are enjoying a delicious piece of chocolate and you wonder, "Can chocolate really be that good?". That answer is most likely YES!

Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolate is the world's favorite Belgian chocolate. For over 50 years, the recipe has remained unchanged. Their signature seashell shapes (say that 5 times fast!) are stamped with a "G", which signifies that the truffle is ready to be enjoyed and experienced.

Each truffle (except their White Chocolate truffles) is filled with a hazelnut praline, adding to the flavor of the Belgian chocolate truffle. Guylian premium Belgian chocolate truffle seashells are made with 100% pure cocoa butter, which is why it starts to melt as soon as you place it in your mouth.
Guylian also offers Extra Dark Truffles, with 74% dark cocoa shell and dark hazelnut praline center. These seashell chocolate truffles have been awarded the European Three Star Superior Taste Award 2010, presented by independent chefs and sommeliers. Guylian Extra Dark Chocolate Truffles were recognized with a near perfect score for their intense and balanced taste, and lingering flavor.

Looking for a decadent Holiday gift or unique stocking stuffer? Guylian's shop has many different truffle packages available as well as chocolate bars (including Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate (72%), including gift boxes already wrapped and it comes with a gift tag. You can also purchase No Sugar Added truffles and No Sugar Added chocolate bars.

So make the Holidays special this year and try Guylian!

WHAT I THOUGHT
A lot of chocolate!
Hold on taste buds, here we go! Christmas is not only filled with gifts, but chocolate as well. And chocolate, especially premium chocolate, makes for a delicious gift!

Guylian is now a family favorite! As you can see, I received plenty of Guylian truffles to try and give out as gifts. See the pretty wrapped one in the left corner? I might give it to a really good friend.

Anyways, I couldn't resist nibbling on some when it first arrived. I thought the shells were almost too pretty to eat- almost. Fine Belgian chocolate melted in my mouth first and then I caught a taste of that delicious hazelnut praline center. Oh my! I even tried some of the Extra Dark (74%) truffles and they were just as good. The bitterness of the dark chocolate and the sweetness from the hazelnut praline made such a great pairing.

I couldn't resist sharing some with Mom, Dad, and Twin. Dad liked it (even though I can't imagine a guy gushing over chocolate) while Mom and Twin wanted more. I really don't know if any of this will last until December 25th, but it should get us through Thanksgiving!
