Saying I love you with Guylian – review and giveaway

There’s one way to get to both of the men’s hearts in this household, and that’s with chocolate.  It’s a sure-fire winner every time.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we will be saying I love you with Guylian this February,

Guylian chocolates

The Guylian range of Belgian chocolates have been firm family favourites since my parents first discovered them a number of years ago.  Their classic sea shell shaped roasted hazelnut praline chocolates are instantly recognisable, and have been since 1958.

We received the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells which contains 22 chocolates.  A perfect gift for saying I love you with Guylian I believe.

If you are looking for something with hearts to show how much you care this Valentine’s Day then maybe the Guylian praline hearts would go down well.  You can buy a 42g box of 4 praline hearts or the larger 105g heart-shaped box.

My 8 year old son and I both love sea horses and we’ve been watching a series from Chester Zoo where we learned that male sea horses produce their babies when there’s a full moon.  We were walking home from Cubs last night, with a bright full moon in the sky, he got very excited.  Mummy, there will be baby sea horses in Chester zoo tonight! Bless him.  Saying I love you with Guylian may well have to involve the 336 box of Guylian Sea Horses here.

Truffles are always a winner for me, and I’ll be dropping my own hints for some La Trufflina I think.  The 180g box of milk, white and dark Belgian chocolates have my name written all over them.  They’d make the perfect 50th birthday gift too I think, don’t you?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. The praline hearts because I love praline and know others do too. The heart shape would be special for a loved one.

  2. My mind was somewhere else and I’ve commented in the form, sorry 🙁
    I would get the traditional sea shells because you get more & that way we could share 🙂

  3. For me it would definitely be the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells that I’d buy for a loved one, they’re so delicious (and one of my favourites!)

  4. I’d buy the hearts in the heart shaped box for my husband. We’ve been married for 40 years – I think he’s earned them!

  5. I would love to gift the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells to a loved one, as they are my favourites and would hope they would love them just as much as I do.

  6. I think the Master’s Selection Red 240g, because it would give them plenty of different flavours to try. I’m very happy with the classic Sea Shells, though; they’re one of my favourite high-street chocolate selections.

  7. I would purchase the Special Valentine present for my husband because they would be perfect for him,he does love chocolate.

  8. The classic Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells – but I’m afraid I’d eat them all myself as my husband isn’t a big chocolate eater & these are my favourite chocolates ever!

  9. I would get the praline heart shaped box as I love the box and would use it for crafts and upcyle it and of course the the praline taste lovely and makes a wonderful gift

  10. It would have to be my favourite for sure the truffles as i love them so much they taste amazing so i hope the person i give them too enjoys them also and if they don’t they i will eat them all!!

  11. My favourites wouldbe the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells which I would love to give to my partner as it would remind her of a fabulous weekend away that we had in Brighton x

  12. The original seashells are my fav, I would share them with the family. I personally like to put them in the freezer and eat them really really cold and hard!

  13. Heart shaped pralines in the heart shaped box, for my Mum. As we love her, so much. Whilst all the chocolates above look great, we would likely buy some others, for other family and friends. We do love chocolate/s, and love to share these treats with each other.

  14. I would buy the heart shaped box for my husband, he really likes guylian and it says I love you better than an ordinary box

  15. I’d buy the Chocolate Sea Shells for my Mum. My dad used to work in Belgium and he used to buy her them when there although she never used to receive them as he used to eat them before he got them home. So for once she may receive a box!

  16. The336 box of seahorses. These chocolates have been my absolute favourite since I was a little girl. My daughter now loves them as does my partner.

  17. I love all guillian chocolates but I tend to look for the whiter ones in the box mmmm always been luxury to me as were ‘adults chocolates ‘ when I was growing up lol

  18. I’d get the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells for my dad 🙂 cos he loves them and has a birthday coming up! I’ll definitely be exploring the truffles though – I’ve never seen them before

  19. I would buy Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells for my lovely husband – he always shares with me (and he would never eat the last one)!

  20. Guylian Seashells are a very fond memory from my childhood so I would always choose to buy those for someone I care about
