Divine chocolate maker ‘Godiva’ has turned 90. To celebrate this occasion, they have collaborated with a well-known artist Oil-B to launch a limited edition gold anniversary collection of eight of the brand’s iconic chocolates. The collection consists of eight legends- one from each decade of Godiva.
According to Godiva, every chocolate tells its own unique story. Lady Noir recreates one of Pierre Draps’, Godiva’s original Maître Chocolatier, earliest recipes, while the Signature Lait is a velvety coffee ganache, decorated with a feather and created for the movie ‘Gone With The Wind’ in 1939. The milk chocolate encased liquid caramel Ecusson features a lion rampant to mark Godiva’s appointment to the Royal Court of Belgium in 1968. Other historical pieces include the Coeur Blanc (1945), Noblesse (1959), Nippon (1972), Azteque (1992) and Mousse Meringue (2015).
Egérie Noir, the ninth and final piece of the collection, combines smooth raspberry ganache balanced with essence of rose petals and is encased in dark Belgian chocolate. Created by Godiva Chef Chocolatier Jean Apostolou, both the filling and the shape of the shell are completely new.
Godiva Chef Chocolatier Jean Apostolou said: “The Gold Collection contains eight of our most precious and iconic chocolates alongside a brand new fresh and fragrant rose and raspberry-flavoured piece. This collection is where tradition and imagination artfully come together.”
It is available at the Dubai Duty Free.
