Only Giants like Callebaut and Marcolini ( aka Nestle) do it in Belgium.

Hi Benoit,

 Thanks for the bars you gave us at "Unwrapped" - we tried the Madagascar one at the weekend and really enjoyed it. We will get through all of them eventually!

 Can I ask you a question? How do you clean your bar moulds?

Thanks,

Duffy
