"PRALINES - PRODUCING OR SELLING." Belgium Local Custom Tip by breughel

Belgium Local Customs: 246 reviews and 239 photos

  ballotin of pralines
by breughel

The major production units happen to be in or near Brussels.
I was told that people who work there are allowed to eat as many pralines as they want on the workplace but are not allowed to take them out. It seems that new workers stop eating pralines after a few days or eat just a few at the coffee pause.
Same in the shops, which you will find in all commercial centres.

Are pralines good or bad for health?
They are certainly good for the moral, they induce a euphoric feeling.
Some addiction to pralines has been reported. I am one of these praline addicts.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
