The recipe of this praline dates back to 1958, the year when the World Exhibition took place in Brussels and Neuhaus created several recipes in honour of this important occasion. Out of the 43 countries that participated in the exhibition, the Thai pavilion was one of the most visited. In light of the strong interest that people showed for Asian culture, Neuhaus created "Pagode" chocolate. The unique shape of this praline is inspired by a pagoda, one of the most typical characteristics of Asian architecture and culture. The "Pagode" chocolate consists of an intense dark chocolate shell holding a layered filling of smooth gianduja paste and intense coffee ganache.
