You can not say “Belgium” without saying “Yummy yummy chocolate!”, and while we’re still working on paving the streets in it… Plenty of options at the supermarket or local corner shop.
Cote D’or & Galler are easiest to find & trusted as delicious. Jacques or Guylaim are trusted backups.
Waffles (pre packed)
Belgian waffles are world famous and not limited to “from the street” options (although fresh is tastiest), feel free to pick up a pack and share with friends back home.
Lotus is a popular brand for good reason, look out for either the plain or chocolate coated options.
Belgian cookies are one of the little secret treats of this land, and only logical after you look the chocolate & waffle situation.
De Stroopere is my fave, then Lotus & Delacre are the tastiest of the tasty, if you don’t see them walk out, you’re not in a place you want to be.
