All our Leonidas shops you can discover a new creation for every season

All our Leonidas shops you can discover a new creation for every season. And that’s all thanks to our Maître Chocolatiers’ hard work and determination, trying to create brand-new flavours. But be warned, if you want to enjoy one of these new creations you have to be quick! These seasonal pralines are often limited editions, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! But of course there’s still the traditional classics, like the Manon, the Gianduja, the Louise and the Noir de Noir. You can find these delicious pralines all year round in a shop near you.

Quality you can taste

Leonidas pralines are made using unbelievably fresh ingredients of the highest quality. Our real Belgian chocolate is made from 100% cocoa butter. For our ganaches and other fillings, we only use fresh butter, fresh cream and milk, hazelnuts from Turkey, Morello cherries from the Périgord region, almonds from Italy, oranges from Valencia, etc. Every time you eat one of our pralines, you’re treated to an explosion of flavours.

Discover the rich history of Leonidas

For more than a century, giving has been making people happy. Leonidas Kestekides and his Greek family paved the way for a real Belgian chocolate revolution. Leonidas started out as a single shop with a sliding sash window and evolved into a brand experience with boutiques all over the world. Over the years the range has expanded, we’ve brought out new explosive flavours and you’ve been enjoying our new creations. But even after 100 years, there’s one slogan that has stayed the same: Leonidas pralines are for everyone.

Curious to find out how Leonidas Kestekides made the switch from granita seller to the founder of a revolutionary Belgian chocolate brand?
