Godiva Chocolatier is a Belgian manufacturer of chocolates founded in Brussels, 1926.
Godiva has opened more than 700 Godiva boutiques and shops in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
Melbournians are lucky to be able to visit the first Godiva chocolate shop store which is located within the Emporium shopping centre in the Melbourne CBD.
We’re delighted to be invited in the launch of Godiva’s Belgian Waffles and ultimate Hot Chocolate in Winter time.
The chocolate shop is clean, bright and dominated by golden fancy color.
The customer staffs were nice and friendly.
The vibe and atmosphere of the chocolate shop were very cosy.
Not long after we were seated, the ultimate Hot Chocolate came to our table.
It was beautifully presented with the caramel popcorns that were spread on top of the Godiva rich dark chocolate used as a lid with the white chocolate spoon on the side.
The hot chocolate by itself wasn’t too sweet which was really good.
It came into perfection when you dipped the dark chocolate and started stirring your hot chocolate with the white chocolate spoon as it blended in perfectly
among hot chocolate, dark and white chocolate.
The texture was very soft, smooth and had a delicate rich taste.
Loved their newly introduced winter drink.
The next one coming was the Godiva’s Belgian Waffles.
It had a fascinating look and presentation dessert served with fresh fruits (strawberries), whipped cream and sprinkle chocolate on the side of the waffles.
On top of the waffles, there were vanilla and chocolate ice cream. The ice cream was very smooth, soft and not too sweet to balance the waffles.
The chocolate sprinkle was very delicious and absolutely fantastic, it was made of 75% Godiva dark chocolate blended with the almond coated with sugar.
The inside texture of the waffles were slightly dense and not too soft, honestly it wasn’t our liking.
Overall, we still had great time enjoying the newly introduced menu from Godiva.
Yay: Hot Chocolate
Nay: The waffle wasn’t soft enough
Note: We’d like to say thank you to Godiva team for the invite and great service.
