Haw the boxes of Belgian chocolates created?
The box of Belgian chocolates was obviously created thanks to the creation of filled chocolate candies – pralines. They were much more fragile than the pieces of chocolate themselves and could easily be damaged during transport from the store in the shopping cart. First came the idea of wrapping them individually in small boxes, which is still the case with some candies, but rather to emphasize their luxury. We also offer pralines wrapped individually in small boxes – Solo, we offer these small gifts in a box with different motives.
As the popularity of filled chocolates grew and people began to buy them in larger quantities, it became impractical to fill a shopping cart with a number of small boxes, and someone thought of stacking them in a box of larger ones. First according to the wishes and choices of customers, but then the manufacturers themselves began to approach the chocolate boxes as another dimension of the possible effect and success of these great candies. They no longer invented only refined combinations of chocolate and its original fillings but began to compose individual pralines into wholes, similar to how a composer creates a melody from tones.
To this day, there are two basic types of candy boxes – one species and several species. The first bet on the fame and popularity of a single type of chocolate. The art of confectioners has brought him almost to perfection and, like all celebrities, they can’t stand a hint of competition. They would suffocate in the box with others and basically harm them and themselves. This is an advantage for producers who do not have to worry about creating the most suitable collections, as well as for those customers who only want one of “their favorite” pralines. We are offering for example the following
However, this does not mean, that multi-type boxes contain treats of some second class, and often quite the opposite. Their advantage is that they also bring an element of cute play to the delicacy. Even though you read what the chocolates contain in the box, you will only find out how it really tastes when you put it in your mouth. You can argue over a multi-type box of chocolates, share your sensory observations, and have a lot of fun. Another element adds to the aroma and taste of filled chocolates, which enhances their ability to create an atmosphere full of pleasant emotions. Having a box of chocolates with a partner, in a family circle, with friends, colleagues, or even just “single” is, in addition to sensory enjoyment, also quite great fun.
That is probably the point of success of the box of chocolates as an absolutely perfect gift, which no one ever complains about and is not disappointed by. They are ready to please as many of our senses as possible. The packaging, and the box will please the eye. The right box of chocolates must be beautiful to look at and must entice you to take it in your hands and caress it a bit. Then you buy it and please yourself or someone close to you and warm your heart. Or eagerly open it and enjoy the sight of the many small chocolate miracles. You unpack first, and you smell it – beautiful! You put it in your mouth – a fairy tale. And plus – each bit brings that little olfactory and taste surprise. Then the wonderful, soothing, and at the same time exciting feeling penetrates from your lips to your stomach and leaves a soft, smooth trail all the way. And if you are lucky enough to enjoy it with the right counterpart, there will be pleasures from kisses so sweet, fragrant, and tasty that the whole world will suddenly turn pink. What other gift can do this?
A box of chocolates is a small piece of luxury that even people who are not very noble can indulge in. At least sometimes. It can make everyday life a holiday. And chocolate is a symbol of luxury among sweets.
