Since the day I spent with Robbert learning the skills of tour guiding I have been thinking more about the sort of tour I would like to do. As you know my speciality is food, especially if it’s sweet.
So I decided to work on an itinerary for the “Justin Beaver Tour of Chocolate Shops of the World”. Here is my work in progress:
Greetings fellow chocolate lovers! Welcome to this tour of chocolate shops of the world. During our time together I will share with you some of the most delightful, delicious and delectable chocolates you will ever taste, in stunning locations.
These beauteous, pillowy morsels come from Elizabeth Brussels. The marshmallow domes simply melt in the mouth and the layers of sweet biscuit and chocolate add that extra crunch. These are available in both milk and dark chocolate and are my absolute favourite.
This giant chocolate J is made by Leonidas in Bruges. All the letters of the alphabet are available, so if you are a true chocaholic you could eat your whole name!
The chocolate at Leonidas comes in all shapes and sizes: even Mr Potato Head has a chocolatey likeness.
Ypres has its fair share of chocolate shops too. My favourite decorates according to the season, whether it’s Autumn or Halloween.
So far I’ve only covered Belgium. This tour is going to be more involved than I thought.
P.S. I practised my tour guiding on Manny, and we did some taste testing along the way.
P.P.S. If you are thinking of joining me on this tour please note: No responsibility will be taken for indigestion, weight gain or trousers that no longer do up at the waist.
