Guylian Belgian Chocolate Review

I received a package of Guylian Belgian Chocolate varieties for purposes of evaluation. No other compensation was received. Thoughts are my own.


I grew up loving sweets. My mom loves chocolates and my dad loved any kind of sweet snack so perhaps it was genetic(??). Every time we eat out, we almost always looked forward to the dessert. But I don’t love every single sweet thing I find. I do know that some are better than others.  And having tried a lot of different brands and varieties, I know that Guylian is in my list of really good chocolates.

Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolates provide the ultimate experience for chocolate lovers. Each luxurious chocolate seashell is marbled with 100% pure, silky smooth milk, dark or white Belgian chocolate. Their irresistible seashell chocolates are filled with a rich, decadent, and luxuriously creamy chocolate truffle; the original handmade recipe of Guy & Liliane. The signature truffle recipe is still made in small-batch copper kettles exclusively by Guylian’s Master Chocolatiers in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.

When I received the package of Guylian Belgian Chocs, I was pleasantly surprised at how many boxes were inside. They sent me almost all the different varieties you can find on their website!


The package had 3 of the 2-piece Truffle Box, 2 of the 6-piece Truffle Box, 1 of the 11-piece Truffle Box, 1 of the 11-piece Truffle Bag, 3 of the 22-piece Truffle Box, and 4 of the Milk Chocolate Bars. Of all of these, I think my favorites are the Milk Chocolate Bar, the Milk & Hazelnut Bar, and the Original Artisanal Truffles.

I seriously couldn’t stop myself from finishing the whole bar of the Milk and Milk & Hazelnut chocs! So I decided to give a couple of boxes to my friends just to keep myself from devouring everything. And my friends told me they loved the chocolates I gave them! I guess that’s testament to the fact that these are great as gifts for the holidays.

Here’s a photo of the Extra Dark Truffles. As you can see, they aren’t just seahorse-shaped. There are actually a lot of different shapes and styles. There are some pieces that have bites on them because my son likes taking one bite off of food, putting the other half back in the container, and taking a bite on a different one.

  6. These chocolates look wonderful. I love chocolates, so doesn’t my best friend–maybe I would share with her if I won, maybe. Thank you for this wonderful contest.

  9. I love Dark Chocolate!! I have got to try the Guylian Extra Dark Belgian Chocolate Truffles. Thank you for sharing this review post.

  10. I really never heard of Guylian Belgian Chocolate before now! They sound terrific! These type of Chocolates must be sold in the exclusive candy shops. I’ve never seen them before. My oldest daughter, Amanda, used to do the exact same thing when it came to a box of Chocolates. She’d break it in half, take a bite, put it back together and put it back into the box! I guess she thought no one would be able to tell! Kids are funny like that! Thanks for the Terrific Review of the wonderful chocolates which you received for the review. Makes me hungry for Chocolate now! I really do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂
