Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolates-Review and GIVEAWAY(CLOSED)

Uhhhh, wanna talk about chocolate?
Yeah, I thought so. 
Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolates-Review
I was lucky enough to get a FANTASTIC array of artisanal Belgian chocolates from Guylian. And oh man....SO GOOD. We're talking creamy, luscious chocolate and the most amazing hazelnut filling. TO DIE FOR. Not only that, but the chocolates are seriously the prettiest I've ever seen. I already gave some away as gifts at a party and intend to put together a wine & chocolate Christmas present using that gorgeous already wrapped chocolate box you can see above.

Here's what I was given to try and my thoughts:
Guylian Chocolate Truffles: Ok, so these are marbled with 100% pure, silky smooth, milk, dark & white Belgian chocolate, filled with Guylian's signature hazelnut filling (the original recipe of Guy & Liliane, their founders). They slow roast and caramelize fresh Mediterranean hazelnuts in small-batch copper kettles and then crush and blend them with rich & creamy Belgian milk chocolate. And they taste like heeeaven. I'm so obsessed with that filling.
Guylian Individually Wrapped Chocolate Truffles: These are exactly the same as the other chocolate truffles, but they're individually wrapped. Which means you can take some truffles with you wherever you go! Hooray!
Limited Edition Guylian Vanilla Cream Truffles: Marbled white & milk chocolate seahorses (so cute btw, and actually symbolic of a really cool cause Guylian sponsors, Project Seahorse), and filled with silky white chocolate vanilla cream truffle. I really love the vanilla filling, it just tastes expensive in the best way.
Guylian Extra Dark Chocolate Truffles: These are hands down my favorite. Probably not surprising since I prefer dark chocolate. And I'm obviously not alone, they've been awarded the European Three Star Superior Taste Award 2010 and were recognized with a near perfect score for their intense and balanced taste, and lingering flavor. They have a 74% dark cocoa shell with Guylian’s extra dark chocolate truffle center. Like the original, this signature hazelnut truffle filling is made in small-batch copper kettles exclusively by Guylian Master Chocolatiers. Are you sold yet?
Guylian No Sugar Added Dark Chocolate Bar (54% Cocoa) and No Sugar Added Milk Chocolate Bar: Ok, sometimes you wanna get your chocolate fix but maybe need to cut down on the sugar-these bars are your friend. Yummy nummy Belgian chocolate without added sugar-Guylian guarantees these bars to have the same taste appeal as premium Belgian chocolate bars. They are made with Malitol, which is a pleasantly sweet alternative to sugar that doesn’t sacrifice taste. Sounds good to me!

Now, what exactly makes Guylian Belgian chocolates so scrumptious?
  • They're crafted and produced and imported from Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.
  • Belgian chocolate uses 100% pure cocoa butter with a melt-point that allows the chocolate to melt perfectly in your mouth.
  • Belgian chocolate is processed, known as conching, to a maximum fineness resulting in a dreamy, creamy chocolate texture.
  • Belgian Chocolatiers strict adherence to true old world artisanal craftsmanship and time-honored Belgian chocolate-making techniques.
