Truly outstanding service. Amidst an unexpected Royal Mail strike, the owner personally ensured that my sister's birthday gift was delivered on time, keeping me informed every step of the way. My deepest gratitude for going above and beyond. As for the chocolates, they were, as ever, a delightful indulgence.

While there's no definitive scientific evidence to suggest that chocolate directly increases lifespan, moderate consumption of dark chocolate - which is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids - has been linked with certain health benefits such as improved heart health.

It may just be a coincidence, but some of the world's oldest people, like Jeanne Calment (1875-1997) and Sarah Knauss (1880-1999), were passionately fond of chocolate. Jeanne Calment habitually ate a kilo of chocolate per week until her physician forced her to give up sweets at the age of 119, three years before she died. You can draw your own conclusions, but one thing we are sure of is that life without chocolate certainly feels a lot longer!

Quite the opposite, in fact. Once it has been absorbed by your body, cocoa produces 72% unsaturated fatty acids which reduce your cholesterol level and clean your arteries. It contains only 20% saturated fatty acids - the kind which aren't so good for you. There's very little cholesterol in dark chocolate made from 100% cocoa butter, like that of Leonidas. In milk chocolate, the cholesterol varies from 15 to 18mg per 100g which is pretty insignificant.

In Belgium, pralines refer to a specific type of chocolate candy that is filled with a soft centre, often ganache or nuts. Chocolates is a more general term that could refer to any type of chocolate treat. So, all pralines are chocolates, but not all chocolates are pralines.
