Belgian Chocolate - and other candy!

A Quick Guide to Chocolate in Belgium!

I was lucky enough to get to go to Brussels, Belgium this past weekend. It did not disappoint. To me, Belgium is a country that has it figured out. They pride themselves on their great waffles, french fries, beer, and chocolate. What else could a human being need in life really? My main goal for…
