Hard to give it away...

While jetlagged in Heathrow airport, I picked up this amaaaazing box of Belgian chocolates from 'The Chocolate Box' as a present for the fam. I got chatting with the guy that works there and he told me that if I wanted to impress anyone with ready access to Swiss chocolate, then the only option was Neuhause chocolate from Belgium.

Although the 28 piece box cost just £1 less than two bottles of alcohol in the duty free shop, it was certainly easier to carry and, in my marginally-conscious state, I was an easy sell. These chocolates have the Belgian Royal Warrant. I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds important.

After presenting the gift, and following through with a slight amount of hint-dropping, I was allowed to try one. It was just perfect, as real chocolate should be. Only just sweet enough, the perfect amount of melt-in-your-mouth-ness, and many layers of flavour. 

I chose the one shaped like a cacao bean.  Then fell asleep for 12 hours. Jetlag... it makes you a most fun houseguest.
