IT IS NOW 100 YEARS AGO THAT JEAN (II) NEUHAUS INVENTED THE PRALINE IN BRUSSELS.

The major production units of chocolates-pralines 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.

What is remarkable with Belgian pralines is the significant price increase as soon as they cross the Belgian border. Worst increase of price is when they are sold at luxury shops like Harrods in London. Multiplication by 2.5 of the Belgian price. I can understand that the poor Londoners buy Belgian pralines at Harrods by only one or two pieces at the time! Therefore, when you leave Belgium buy some kilos at the Brussels airport. There are good shops with a large variety of the best pralines.
A price idea in Belgium: 35 - 45 ?/kg.

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

Address: Many shops to be found in Brussels
Directions: Located throughout the city.
