The ONLY thing I shopped for in Belgium was chocolates and I tried a few from quite a lot of shops. People have differing opinions on the best, my recommendation is to try a few from the ones that look interesting and when you find one you like, then buy yourself a box.

I found the ones I liked were from the midrange shops, the higher end, highly recommended shops that I tried in Antwerp were not to my liking, too many flavors combined in one chocolate.

My favorite of any place on this trip was in Ieper and it was a shop that was only in that city but I did finally find a place in Brussels that had white chocolate with fresh cream. The box and ribbon said Grand-Place, not sure if that's the name of the shop but it was on a side street off the Grand Place.

Also on the Grand Place you'll find a couple that have branches in many cities, Godiva which is sold worldwide and Neuhaus and somewhere near the Grand Place I think there was a Leonidas which I can get here in Chicago.
