Belgium may not stand out as one of the great gastronomic nations, but when it comes to the range and quality of biscuit and chocolate supplies, this small country is head and shoulders above the rest. With such a prestigious reputation for its tempting creations, Belgium only has to put its name to a biscuit or a chocolate and it will be considered an outstanding product that can be relied upon for its divine taste and excellent quality. |
Because Belgium has become so famous for producing both superior biscuits (such as the speculoos) and various chocolates, it is little wonder that you often see the two decadent delights combined in one delicious treat.
One of the most famous of all the Belgium confectioners, well known for creating some of the tastiest indulgencies, is Desobry, the quintessential ‘Belgium Biscuiteer’.
Top Quality Recognised Worldwide
It was back in 1947 that Léon Desobry crafted his first biscuits. At the time he lived and worked in the Wallonian region of Belgium in one of the country’s oldest cities, Tournai. As he worked, the enticing smells of baking butter, sugar, spices and chocolate started to emanate from his kitchen and neighbours from the surrounding houses flocked to the shop. Léon Desobry soon became recognised as a master in his craft of biscuit-making and his legacy has lived on.
Longstanding exceptional quality, by its very nature, breeds a strong reputation, and indeed today Desobry is honoured on a global scale. The much-loved brand is truly representative of the nation’s two most treasured gastronomic specialities, and the way the team behind the trademark products has brought them together in such triumphant style has solidified its fame. Today, standing out among the biscuity chocolate supplies of many a retailer are Desobry’s most celebrated classics.
Some of the Favourites
With such a huge range of biscuit-based chocolate supplies from which to choose, appearing in all kinds of shapes, sizes and flavours, it is hard to know where to start when deciding which Desobry products you want to stock. The classic speculoos is a reliable first choice, especially if you are keen on making a statement with your Belgium display. With cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves complementing the caramelised crutch of this thin round staple, customers will be hooked.
For something a little more luxurious, the perles are the perfect addition. Dipped in either dark, milk or white chocolate, these crunchy biscuits hide a silky, luscious chocolate centre that has decadence written all over it. These are a special treat, so customers looking for a box of something unique to take to a dinner party, for example, will love them.
Other favourites include amandine, topped with almonds, and the classic thin cigar tubes that make an excellent accompaniment to coffee. There is little doubt that Desobry is the Master of Belgium culinary indulgences.
