Antoine Jacques was a man of his time and his region - and a big fan of chocolate. Inspired and motivated by the prevailing business climate with his many inventions, Antoine Jacques founded his factory in 1896 in the region of Verviers. He recruits laborers among local craftsmen who specialize in the manufacture of chocolate, candy and gingerbread. For example, in collaboration with a local chocolate manufacturer, he employs 43 people. His passion for chocolate will eventually lead to the launch of the famous chocolate bars, for which in 1936 a patent is filed.
Antoine Jacques and his chocolate are doing well. In 1920 he founded the Jacques Chocolaterie. In 1922 he transferred production to Eupen to fully concentrate on his ambition: to manufacture chocolate of ever-better quality and to constantly develop new bars and tablets.
The English Cocker Spaniel is a breed of gun dog. The English Cocker Spaniel is an active, good-natured, sporting dog standing well up at the withers and compactly built. There are "field" or "working" cockers and "show" cockers. It is one of several varieties of spaniel and somewhat resembles its American cousin, the American Cocker Spaniel, although it is closer to the working-dog form of the Field Spaniel and the English Springer Spaniel.
Outside the US, the breed is usually known simply as the Cocker Spaniel, as is the American Cocker Spaniel within the US. The word cocker is commonly held to stem from their use to hunt woodcock.
