(You read that right – there will be Guylian praline ice-cream available.)

The company is famous the world over for its seashell-shaped chocolates, and was formed in 1958 when founders Guy and Liliane Foubert combined their first names.

They’re also responsible for one of the most celebrated uses of a mermaid in an advertising campaign – with this gem having people all over Australia trying out their falsetto as they tuck into a box.

Guylian chocolates sell in more than 100 countries.
