Saxon Chocolates - The finesse and tradition from Belgium

A fresh, deep aroma; a velvety, smooth texture; a distinct, rich flavour; and a pleasant, lingering aftertaste are the rewards awaiting customers who are first enchanted by the unique, stylish presentation of Saxon Chocolates. The founder and president, Johan De Greef, brought to Canada the passion, the personification of elegance, an expression of a long and rich tradition, found in Belgian chocolates. And TSC has the pleasure to offer all chocolate lovers Saxon’s fine products, which will provide you with an unforgettable experience from packaging to content. Saxon Chocolates' roots trace back to Europe, specifically to Belgium, home to a historic and unrivalled tradition in high-quality chocolate making, where De Greef was born. ""I feel like chocolate making is not only part of my cultural past and my personality, but that it's in my DNA.,"" mused Saxon's owner. Focus on efficiency and quality drives every step of the manufacturing process to ensure superiority and consistency across its entire product line. Saxon Chocolates are made using simple recipes. De Greef believes that complex recipes, consisting of more than 50 ingredients, can't compare to Saxon's process's simplicity and purity. Only the world's finest cocoa beans make it into Saxon chocolates as they are more robust and potent, spicier and nuttier flavour. De Greef describes the product as a valuable gift that meets the most sophisticated tastes of its customers. Making exquisite chocolate isn't enough to stand out in the world of high-end elegance; a box of Saxon Chocolates is much more than the bouquet of its contents. It is an experiential gift designed to tantalize the eyes with a stylish presentation before penetrating the senses with an unrivalled taste. The company consistently crafts new collections to capture each chocolate's essence and elegance while providing something fresh and often whimsical for the customer. From sea salt caramels to peppermint bark flavours, hot chocolate to truffles, individual packages to assorted gift boxes, Saxon Chocolates has options for whatever your need or occasion is.
