1978 was an exciting year for Valentino. During which the first chocolate varieties were developed, weighed up, tasted and approved. The team grew from two to a whole production team and founded headquarters in Brussels. The only thing still missing was the right name! As Belgian founders, Helen and Willy, they looked for a name both easy to pronounce in Dutch and French. Niet makkelijk! Pas évident! Not straightforward! At the beginning of the year, just before Valentine's Day, a peak moment in the chocolate sector, they were inspired and chose “Valentino”, Valentino stands for love, but also seduction, and a feeling for more ... chocolate of course. (not to mention Helen's crush on the famous Italian actor Rudolph Valentino!)
In order to create some of those amazing Belgian chocolates that everyone is so crazed about, Valentino chose to work with only amazing natural ingredients. This allows them to keep their chocolate recipes stunningly simple, their continental Belgian chocolates have taste and character. Everyone seems to go back for more! To keep everyone excited and on their toes, they chose to innovate by creating a new chocolate every month. This limited edition "chocolate of the month" goes to every Valentino shop in Belgium where it's put through the Belgian consumer tasting test (yes, the Belgian's are spoiled). Only those triggering the best reactions "Ooooh, Aaaah, Hmmmm, 10/10, want more NOW, can't stop, come again ..." make it into Valentino's all year round chocolate catalogue. What a sure fire way of guaranteeing the best Belgian quality! And remember, Valentino chocolates are made with naturally light and creamy fillings, this way you can take a second, or a third ... and maybe one more . . .
