That Belgian Chocolate

I'M OBVIOUSLY NOT PERTAINING TO THE CHOCOLATE COMPANY, NOR THE PAINTER with the same seemingly common Belgian surname.

I'm pertaining to the mouth-watering goodies from the Brussels-born leather goods house begun by Charles Delvaux in 1829. With rep as "the Hermès of Belgium" and an almost 200-year nod from its home country's royals -not to mention handbag price tags that go up to €8,625 apiece- the maison's wares are best left to be desired from a distance. At least by girls like me.

I accept without resentment that I will never own a Delvaux. I will just eat chocolate.
