Who we are


BARÚ is a young Belgian company that builds on the Belgian chocolate heritage in a playful and original way.

We’re whimsical, a little rebellious and big fans of Belgian surrealism. Our ultimate goal is to continuously surprise and amaze our fans (and ourselves) with innovative treats.

From our Dreamy Chocolate Hippos and Swirly Hot Chocolates to our now famous Fluffy Marshmallows, Barú creations are the ultimate indulgence!

What & How

What we do and how we do it


We want our fans to experience a moment of amazement and delight. Our daily efforts are focused on creating delicious sweets & treats, packed with wonderful, natural ingredients.

We love authenticity and value traditional production methods. We distance ourselves as much as possible from artificial colours and flavours and use only genuine fruit, bourbon vanilla, honey and other pure products.

Only the best is good enough for our fans - from chocolate to packaging.

Did you know...

... our Dreamy Chocolate Hippo is not just any hippo? A pygmy hippopotamus is a lot more headstrong and faster than you might think and is a land animal that spends most of its time in the water. A surrealistic animal in other words - just our style.

...hippos are not the only ones we love, we are also fans of monkeys and magpies? Monkeys are mischievous and magpies are quirky, wonderful birds that are extremely inquisitive. Migie and Wilbur keep us company in the office.

... our chocolate marshmallow bar was the first of its kind? A fluffy bar with a mouth-watering filling dipped in chocolate that was just waiting to be invented!

... marshmallows were first created as a cure for a sore throat? The medicinal power of the ‘marsh mallow’ plant (Althaea Officinalis) was discovered by the Ancient Egyptians. To cover up the bad taste of the medicine, they added sugar. Those Egyptians sure were clever!
