Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolate includes the ever-eye-catching chocolate seahorses. This review is for their most popular product: the basic hazelnut truffle box. There is also a dark chocolate version (perhaps for a later review). How could anyone not want to try these little chocolate seahorses and seashells? These Guylian chocolates are not found everywhere, but they are offered at enough places that chocoholics who have not tried them surely see them over and over, causing all sorts of temptation.
These are not cheap chocolates, but they are not overly expensive, either. Luckily, they’re well worth the price. The outside of each piece is a marbled chocolate; you can see the white chocolate and other variations very easily in all the pieces. The inside is a nice hazelnut filling. For comparison purposes, the filling of GBS Chocolate Seashells are probably a little more moist, but the Guylian filling is not dry, either—just a bit different, at least in the boxes we tried.
Their Signature Chocolate & More
Just as an aside, for those who really like the seahorse theme, Guylian’s Belgian website has a page dedicated to their signature chocolate animal.
In addition to the well-known hazelnut truffles, they also have dark chocolate hazelnut truffles, milk chocolate truffles, soft caramel truffles and more, including some sugar-free chocolate bars.
