The origin of Godiva chocolate

by Ayaka A.
(Edogawa, Tokyo)

I love chocolate very much and I eat it when I feel tired. Do you know the origin of the chocolate brand called “GODIVA?” It’s famous for a high ranking of chocolate. I haven’t thought of the connection of GODIVA with England.

According to the legend of England, in the 11th century there was a woman called “Lady Godiva.” So, GODIVA comes from Lady Godiva.

The nickname of GODIVA is "brimful of spirit of love." Since its establishment as a business, the chocolate of GODIVA has been made with all their heart one by one.

Knowing the origin of GODIVA, I think it’s important for us to know the meaning of food. I will be able to eat chocolate of GODIVA with a special feeling.

That's all. Thank you for reading.

I also love Godiva chocolate
by: Gary Wolff

Great story, Ayaka ! I also love chocolate, but the Godiva brand is usually a little too pricey for my small pocketbook. :-)

My favorite chocolate in Japan is caramel-flavored, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, made by Lotte. You can find them in almost every convenience store for just 105 yen.

Have you ever tasted them? If not, please try them!
