Godiva goes halal? Turkish-owned Belgian chocolatier stops producing praline with alcohol

Famous Belgian chocolate manufacturer Godiva has stopped producing liqueur pralines. The move was met with indignation, with some people saying the famous chocolate is now no longer Belgian.

Godiva, a manufacturer of premium fine chocolates, was founded in 1926 in Brussels. The Belgian chocolate industry, with its long-rooted traditions, is considered to be a symbol of the European country. The company was purchased by Turkish organization Yıldız Holding in 2007.

One of the most famous products of the company was praline with liqueur. However, Godiva has stopped the production of these confectioneries since April 2017, the company said earlier in September.

Godiva was crap anyway.
