Belgium - 5/0
Belgium is a country renowned for its chocolate. The phrase "Belgian Chocolate" is often used to promote chocolate, as consumers see it as a mark of quality. In reality, most Belgian chocolate is mass produced by one of two companies - Barry Callebaut (the world's largest chocolate maker) and Belcolade.
What distinguishes Belgian Chocolate, isn't the quality or origin of the cocoa beans, it's the milk powder used to give that distinctive creamy taste. Most chocolate connoisseurs do not consider the phrase "Belgian Chocolate" to be a mark of quality, but it is still widely used.
There are, however, quality chocolate makers in Belgium. Listed below are posts on Chocablog featuring chocolate from Belgium.
