Chocolaterie Ickx makes Belgian seasonal chocolate box novelties sold to high end department stores and chocolate shops. The company was founded in the 1970s, primarily making pralines. Eventually, the growth of the company led to the building of a new chocolate factory in Essen, Belgium.
My family received a box of Belgian Chocolate Pumpkins as a gift for Halloween. The autumn collection has four varieties: Salted Carmel (Milk Chocolate), Chocolate Crème (Dark Chocolate), Pecan Praline (White Chocolate), and Pumpkin Ganache (Spiced Confectionery Coating).

Are You Ready For White Chocolate Pringles?
