Godiva chocolatier got its start in 1926 in Brussel, Belgium, when Joseph Draps opened his first shop in honour of Lady Godiva (whose last ride is the brand’s logo. Godiva’s team of chef chocolatiers includes a group of award-winning pastry chefs and chocolatiers - masterful innovators who may rely on science to develop recipes, but create chocolate inspired by aromas, spices, the cuisines of other cultures, and by the lates in gastronomy, fashion and architecture. Here are some fun facts about Godiva:
1/ Godiva chocolate still uses some of the original recipes developed by the founder Pierre Draps, including the pralines that go into bonbons like the Corail, which is coconut cream filling flavoured with rum, layered with hazelnut praline, a nougatine square, and then covered in dark chocolate.
2/ Godiva has five chef chocolatiers who work together as a team to research and develop new chocolate formulas, discover new flavours, and design new ways to work with chocolate.
3/ Every year, the Godiva chocolatier create, on average, about 30 to 40 new chocolate recipes and 11 new seasonal collections, and oversee the production of about 290 million chocolates in Godiva’s Brussels factory.
4/ The Truffelata frozen drink may look like a milkshake, but it’s pure chocolate and definitely not made with ice cream. Instead, it’s made with the same ingredients used to make truffles, which depending on the recipe can include a blend of ice with chocolate, ganache, fondant, pralines, and other nuts, fruits, and ingredients. The six flavours include Milk Chocolate, Oreo Cookie, Chocolate Lava Cake, Salted Caramel, Strawberry Creme, and Hazelnut Crunch.
5/ Godiva’s soft serve comes in three flavours: dark chocolate, white chocolate vanilla bean, and Swirl, which is a combination of both flavours. It is served in a cup or you can have it in a Belgian waffle cone with the rim dipped in white or dark chocolate with almonds.
6/ Hand-dipped berry cones feature paper cones filled with your choice of perfectly ripe strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries dipped in dark or milk chocolate. You can watch them do this right in the store.
How do you pronounce Godiva?
Most people in the United States say “go-dai-va.” If you’re from Belgium, however, most people say “goh-dee-va.” Godiva representatives consider both to be acceptable, so it really depends on when you’re from and which way you prefer to say it.
