Impressions of Bruges #6
Bruges is also famous for its chocolate and confectionery. We had a guided visit to a small shop (not the one pictured above) that made beautiful hand-crafted chocolates on the premises. Many of the tourist shops sell mass-produced goods though, so you have to be a bit careful what you are buying. Tasting some of the very good chocolate reminded me that it can be worth buying the expensive stuff... The 'mouth-feel' is exquisite and the carefully regulated composition of proper Belgian chocolate, with a high cocoa content, ensures that one small chocolate is extremely rich and satisfying.
