When Lady Godiva,
wife of Lord Leofric, protested against the taxation of his subjects, she
agreed to ride through the streets of Coventry
"clad in naught but her long tresses", and so long as the residents
remained in shuttered buildings their tax burden would be lifted. The
following morning she made her famous ride and, despite being the ultimate
temptation, the citizens graciously remained indoors. Leofric kept his
word and reduced the taxes to the delight of his subjects, ensuring Godiva's
legendary status throughout the centuries. Nowhere is her passion,
purity, sensuality, style and boldness more symbolized than in an enticing box
of Godiva chocolates, created to win the hearts of all those who taste them.
Inspired by Lady
Godiva’s passion and boldness, Godiva Chocolatier brings this pioneering spirit, generosity and
sensuality to the art of chocolate, creating enticing experiences to complement any occasion.Combining enticing flavours, delicate
textures and elegant decoration, Godiva’s Chefs Chocolatier use
their expertly honed skills to create masterpieces
out of the finest ingredients. With an established heritage of chocolate
artisans, Godiva has become synonymous with
refinement and innovation, bringing the best of Belgium to the world.
