Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Caramel
Today's package of individually-wrapped, Masterpieces Milk Chocolate Caramel Lion of Belgium chocolates were from Godiva Chocolatier, Inc. (New York, NY).
The unwrapped, attractive, shield-shaped caramel-filled lions of Belgium were very sweet.* The sugar and corn syrup dominated the tasting experience, with a bit of milk chocolate and caramel texture in the background.
Godiva's Masterpieces filled chocolates highlight some of the company's signature offerings. In this case the iconic embossed lion was likely inspired by a Belgian coat of arms.**
*Ingredients: "Sugar, corn syrup, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, milk powder, skim milk powder, heavy cream, invert sugar, butter (unsalted), glycerin, butter oil (milk), emulsifier (soy lecithin), caramel, baking soda, natural flavor."
**In 1837, Belgium adopted a Coat of Arms that included a lion (known as Leo Belgicus).
