Godiva’s 2014 Easter Eggs Make the Perfect Gift

By Paul Joseph

It’s nearly that time of year again when we have the perfect excuse to indulge in one of life’s enduring pleasures: chocolate.

With Easter less than one month away, chocolatiers are shuffling for position with a range of mouth-watering offers for this year’s traditional festivities.

One such company is Godiva, whose Belgian heritage dates all the way back to 1926 and whose name is synonymous the world over with luxury chocolates.

For 2014, Godiva’s dedicated craftsmen of chocolatiers have created an Easter Egg range that harks back to the days of its founders almost ninety years ago, when in 1926 Pierre Draps Senior created his first praliné chocolates, or pralines, in the small atelier of his Brussels home.

Arguably the stand-out creation is the Godiva Easter Gift Box, which features striking packaging designed by Korean-born New York artist Eunju Kang. The 15-piece Gift Box contains a selection of Godiva’s signature chocolates, including pralines, caramels, nougatines and ganaches and is priced at £25.

Godiva was named by its founding family after the old English legend Lady Godiva, who was known for her passion, boldness and generosity.

Today Godiva chocolates are available in more than 80 countries worldwide.
