PIECES OF HISTORIES
The Godiva story began in 1926, when the inspirational Belgian chocolatier Pierre Draps created his very first pralines. In 2016, Godiva is proud to celebrate 90 years of innovation and artisanship with nine special chocolates. Each creation is a precious taste of history and has its own fascinating tale to tell.
Lady Noir (1926)
A fine white chocolate ganache laced with exotic Madagascan vanilla. The dark chocolate shell features an impression of Lady Godiva, who became the iconic symbol of the chocolatier.
Signature Lait (1939)
A sumptuous coffee ganache, created for the multi-Oscar-winning movie ‘Gone with the Wind'. The shell is hand decorated with a feather, recalling Scarlett O'Hara's famous hat.
Coeur Blanc (1945)
The year in which Godiva opened its first store in Brussels, ‘the heart of Belgium'. The occasion was marked with a white chocolate hazelnut praliné, in an iconic heart shape.
The Draps family loved to holiday in Italy. This elegant chocolate is an interpretation of a traditional Italian recipe of rich hazelnut praliné, skillfully blended with smooth milk chocolate.
A proud year, as Godiva is appointed to the Royal Court of Belgium. To celebrate, the Belgian lion is embossed on the milk chocolate shell, which wraps around velvety liquid caramel.
A new chocolate, with hazelnut praliné and puffed rice, was launched to herald Godiva's arrival in Japan. The center is coated in fine dark chocolate, enveloped with milk chocolate.
Five centuries after the discovery of America, Godiva created a tribute to the Aztecs, who revered the cocoa bean. It is a soft, creamy ganache, covered in dark chocolate.
Mousse Meringue (2015)
A more recent creation, inspired by the twin themes of contrast and harmony. Light, yet crispy meringue brings a touch of surprise and texture to a creamy chocolate mousse.
Egérie Noir (2016)
The smoothest raspberry ganache, delicately balanced with essence of rose petals, and encased in dark chocolate. A contemporary creation to mark Godiva's 90th anniversary.
