Which European country is famed for chocolate and pralines?
Belgium's association with chocolate goes back as far as 1635 when the country was under Spanish occupation. During the early 20th century, the country was able to import cocoa from its colony, the Belgian Congo. Many aspects of chocolate composition are regulated by law. In particular, vegetable-base fats are not used.
