Created using the best ingredients
Belgian chocolate conquers hearts all over the world
From New York to Moscow, New Zealand to Rome and Beijing to Berlin – everyone knows that Belgian chocolate is the best. But what makes Belgian chocolate the best chocolate in the world?
The cocoa beans are roasted with the greatest of care.
Then, the roasted cocoa beans are finely ground until they are just 12 microns in diameter.
Our Belgian chocolate is made from 100% cocoa butter and has a high cocoa content.
The quality of our chocolate is assured by Callebaut – the holy grail of chocolate.
Although we are constantly reinventing Leonidas by coming up with innovative creations, we also follow traditional recipes, generation after generation.
Our chocolate is Belgian through and through. Over the years, Leonidas has evolved into one of the most well-known brands of chocolate. Since the very first Leonidas creation, the recipe for success has been based on freshness. At Leonidas, we never use frozen products. Our traditional pralines are made from the most refined ingredients such as fresh butter, hazelnuts from Turkey, fresh cream, Morello cherries from the Périgord region, almonds from Italy, fresh milk, oranges from Valencia, etc. Our Maître Chocolatiers carefully choose these ingredients to surprise you with new flavours, time after time. Real Belgian chocolate, made from the finest ingredients, is used to create pralines with unique taste sensations.
