Bruges: Chocolate

Bruges has clearly become the world’s capital of chocolate porn.  Seriously.  I knew it was known for chocolate (as is Belgium in general, of course), but I had no idea how omnipresent and how numerous the chocolatiers had become in this city.  It is heaven.  And the shop windows are works of art!

We were visiting during the week following Easter, so many windows still had lovely Easter displays with eggs, rabbits, chicks, etc.

If bunnies and eggs aren’t your thing, there’s chocolate Belgian beer bottles.

We purchased a variety of chocolate from several shops….some for us and some for gifts.  The choice is so overwhelming!
