Leonidas chocolates (or "pralines") are
imported from Belgium, and therefore
made in the pure Belgian style, with lots of
fresh cream fillings. Leonidas chocolates
are consistently good, and the prices are
quite reasonable for this quality at US$26
Our recommendation: the Manon, a layer
of chocolate ganache topped with a thick
layer of vanilla fresh cream, smothered in
white chocolate. Yummy!

I love these chocolates. I read about them in Consumvers Report 2002. They were rated a best buy. So, when I was in NY I had to try them. Fabulous and half the price of other chocolate.

My husband and I discovered these wonderful chocolates when we lived in Paris. We were delighted to find that there was a store in New York City, where we could continue our love affair with these yummy chocolates.
Leonidas chocolates are rich, smooth, and consistently excellent. They are much better than some of the more famous - and expensive - chocolates which one finds in the New York area.
The "Manon" is simply the most delicious chocolate I have ever tasted! I am not usually a great fan of white chocolate, but this combination of coffee filling and white chocolate with a hazelnut in the middle, is beyond compare. If I die and go to heaven, and they don't have "Manons", I'm not staying!
Good chocolates are never cheap, but these are quite reasonable. I recommend that folks give them a try!
