Chocolate snails

I'm not a big chocolate fan, but every once in a while something will grab my attention. Like these individually wrapped escargots (snails) made of chocolate. These are milk chocolate (they also come in dark chocolate) filled with praline and bits of hazelnut. So I picked up a small box the other day. Ken and I finished them yesterday. They were very good, and now I think my curiosity is satisfied.

If you don't like real snails, you might like these.

The grocery stores set up a whole aisle of chocolates each year for the holiday season. It's a wall of confections in every shape and flavor. They also make displays of champagne and other sparkling wines. Very festive.


  1. Well, I am a big chocolate fan and I remember those chocolate snails, Guylian Praline Seashells were what I always had. SO good. Here, the shops have their share of Christmas chocolate, but they‘re filled to overflowing with nougat, marzipan, and traditional Christmas montecados and polverones. Not easy for me to ignore, but I’ve managed. I even found sugar-free nougat and marzipan that was actually delicious.

  2. Ohhhh, those are great. Milk chocolate (good milk chocolate, from Europe) is my favorite.

  3. By the time they get to their destination, they’ll be completely melted!

  4. mitch, I have a memory of those "seashells," too. Tis the season!

    judy, they do good chocolate over here, that's for sure!

    chm, ha!


Tell me what you think!
