Blissful moments for everyone

Leonidas gives you top quality chocolates for an affordable price, allowing you to give moments of chocolate bliss to those you care about. A birthday party, a meal with friends, a romantic evening or just a thank you. Leonidas is there to help mark your special occasions with family, friends and colleagues. Still, chocolates are not only for important occasions.

There are times when you “just” want to make someone happy by showing them you care. From the beginning, Leonidas Kestekides and his nephew Basilio wanted Leonidas chocolates to be accessible to everyone. Chocolates are a luxury product that everyone should be able to enjoy, a kind of fundamental right.

A history of taste

More than 100 years ago, Leonidas Kestekides created the very first chocolates as we know them today. Over the years, four generations of the Kestekides family have left their mark on Leonidas chocolate, transforming the brand into a large and successful family business. Starting with a single shop with a sash window and chocolates displayed on the window sill, it has grown to become a global brand with more than 1200 shops. Now the whole world knows about Leonidas and its delicious creations. Discover the birth of a chocolate revolution here.
