Making an effort to ensure that every year is unique and memorable demonstrates love and deep affection.

Given that Valentine’s Day is an annual occurrence, sometimes we might need just a little help to make this year more creative than the last.

Sounds sweet.

GODIVA has bend mending, blending and bonding the hearts of many love birds for years.

They certainly have a rich history that qualifies them to do so.

Their team expresses, “With over 600 owned Boutiques and a presence in more than 100 countries world-wide, Godiva has grown into a global premium brand over the past 90 years. But before the global recognition, Godiva was and still is the story of an exceptional Belgian family whose passion for chocolate drove them to greatness.

In 1968, Godiva was appointed an official chocolatier to the Royal Court of Belgium. A great honour to receive, the prestigious Royal Warrant established Godiva’s role as an ambassador to its home country and a purveyor of high-quality Belgian chocolate.”

Very impressive.

At their home they have a page devoted exclusively for the beautiful lady in your life.

Newly created pieces capture the fascinating and romantic history of chocolate and feature packaging by Olympia Le Tan

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — As long as we can remember, people have been exchanging chocolates on Valentine’s Day as a sign of their love. But how did this romantic association between chocolate and love begin? GODIVA, takes a playful turn at exploring the answer to this important question with their limited-edition Valentine’s Day collection and seasonally inspired treats, available now on GODIVA.com and in GODIVA Cafés and boutiques around the world.

This special collection, comprised of heart-shaped boxes filled with unique chocolate pieces, romances the history of chocolate, allowing GODIVA’s fans to experience a taste of chocolate’s beautiful evolution. Inspired by the fascinating and sensorial history of chocolate, from its origins to the present Valentine’s Day, each piece incorporates a bit of history and the magical element of love.

Through culinary artistry, masterful chocolate innovation, and passionate creativity, GODIVA Chef Chocolatier, Jean Apostolou, created this limited-edition collection to celebrate how chocolate has solidified its place as the perfect Valentine’s Day gift through the ages.

“Chocolate has a fascinating story to tell, from the discovery of cocoa in the Americas, its cultivation in Africa, and its mastery in Europe, where chocolatiers refined and perfected this exquisite gift from nature hundreds of years ago,” says Chef Apostolou. “When I first envisioned this selection, I was inspired by these pivotal moments in chocolate’s delicious history and set out to create a Valentine’s Day collection that captures this beautiful journey.”

The collection’s charming and elegant packaging was designed by Olympia Le Tan, the contemporary brand known for its creation of original handbags and minaudières, a combination of embroidery and literature designs carried by some of the world’s most famous stars. The whimsical, Parisian-inspired packaging of GODIVA’s 2020 Valentine’s Day Collection features hand drawn illustrations of iconic Valentine Day’s symbols, like hearts, roses, doves and love notes, along with less traditional and more fantastical angels. It’s a match made in heaven.

Inside the Olympia Le Tan packaging is where consumers will find the four new GODIVA chocolates, each representing important milestones in chocolate’s journey.

GODIVA’s 2020 Valentine’s Day Collection

  • INTENSE GANACHE: To celebrate the start of chocolate’s story with its discovery in the Americas, where it was believed to be a gift from the heavens, Chef Jean crafted a Mexican origin chocolate. It has authentic chocolate notes and a long-lasting taste to begin your romantic culinary journey.
  • CACAO HONEY DELIGHT: To commemorate the beginning of Europe’s love for chocolate, Chef Jean paired cacao with honey, the original sweetener used when chocolate was first served to the Europeans.
  • PRALINÉ DREAM: The history of chocolate would not be complete without celebrating the first praline ever made: the ultimate combination of hazelnut paste in a chocolate shell. Chef Jean created the very same crunchy hazelnut praliné as it first was, specially made to make you swoon!
  • MODERN LOVE: To end our love story with chocolate, Chef Jean designed a beautifully shaped piece pairing decadent chocolate and delectable strawberry. This new sumptuous creation will take us to present day, evoking modern love.
