Delft is one of my favourite cities in the Netherlands. An old city with a young vibe, with narrow streets and many cosy shops to discover. In one of my visits, last summer, I stumbled upon this little chocolate shop: Van der Burgh Chocolaad. The beautiful patterns of the chocolate packaging I’ve seen in the window charmed me, so I entered to see what treats I can get. Inside the cute shop, I noticed something you don’t see often: someone was manually packing the chocolates! How cool is that?! The interior was cosy, with a few antiques decorations and smelled heavenly. I learned that it’s a family business and they sell handmade chocolates that are also packaged by hand, because they believe that every chocolate should be a gift. And a gift it was!  I left the place with a few sweets, my favourite being a chocolate with pieces of confit orange — I opened it as soon as I was outside and it quickly disappeared.

  1. Now I want chocolate 😀 It’s a good thing I don’t live too near Delft otherwise I might spend a lot of money in that shop.

    • Yes, it’s kind of impossible to leave the place with only one chocolate 😀

        • Ha ha! Yes, I am that person who buys only one. Most of the times 😀
