You've Been Saying 'Godiva' Wrong This Whole Time

Us? Getting something about chocolate wrong? SURELY NOT.

But prepare for your mind to be blown and your life choices (kind of) to be questioned, as it turns out most of us have been wrong all along, after Belgium's Prime Minister of Foreign Affairs dropped a bomb at the brand's anniversary celebration on Wednesday.

Apparently, we've been pronouncing it wrong all along, and it's actually meant to be God-EE-va like diva, not EYE-va like eyeball.
