For more than 160 years, Neuhaus has been regarded as the quintessence of Belgian chocolate excellence. All the chocolates and truffles are still entirely made in an atelier near Brussels and freshly imported from Belgium.

Neuhaus also considers itself the birthplace of the Praline. In 1857, Jean Neuhaus opened his first shop in Brussels.

“Jean Neuhaus, a Swiss pharmacist, moves to Brussels and opens a business in the prestigious Galerie de la Reine. Beside medication, he offers his customers refined confectionery, a passion which gradually absorbs him more and more. He combines the two products in a clever way, improving the somewhat sour taste of the medicines by covering them in delicious chocolate.”

His passion was passed on to his grandson, Jean Neuhaus Junior. “Inspired by the legacy of his grandfather, he replaces the bitter medication within the chocolate with a tasty filling. The first Belgian praline is born and Jean Neuhaus Jr. creates a milestone in the history of Belgium and its most famous product.”

The Neuhaus praline has exceptionally rich flavor: a ganache of 64% dark chocolate that is made with cocoa from Peru.
