Godiva has been a leading chocolatier since Joseph Draps opened the first boutique in Brussels in 1926. Many are familiar with the rich truffles and chocolate creations the house has brought forth, but few know just how deep the tradition runs. Godiva is named for the immortal Lady who cast off modesty and convention to challenge her husband’s excessive levy on the poor. After riding naked through the city, the Lord lifted his taxes and the name Lady Godiva became synonymous with passion, boldness, daring and sensuality. These same qualities guide Godiva in every creation. The new Spring truffles exemplify this in light, dark and white chocolates filled with strawberries and crème, cheesecake, tart raspberry and other blissful flavors made with butter, cream and the finest chocolates.
