My mother was born and raised in Belgium, and I've visited the gorgeous country 5 times (highly recommend a trip there, by the way...totally underrated!). At the end of every trip, we pack a duffel bag full of chocolate and this is the brand we ALWAYS turn to. Eat a piece of Côte d'Or and compare it to any other chocolate and you'll notice a difference immediately. Smooth, decadent, absolute chocolate heaven. LOVE!
