Chocolates
    2017-July-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

↓A box of pralines is weighed at Belgian chocolate shop Neuhaus inside the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in central Brussels, Belgium, on Monday.

A major industry since the 19th century, today chocolate forms an important part of the nation’s economy and culture. Belgium’s association with chocolate goes back as far as 1635 when the country was under Spanish occupation shortly after chocolate had been brought to Europe from Mesoamerica. By the mid 18th century, chocolate was extremely popular in upper and middle class circles, particularly in the form of hot chocolate. The industry expanded massively in the 19th century, gaining an international reputation and, together with the Swiss, became one of the commodity’s most important producers in Europe.
