House of Brussels Chocolates Inc. ("Brussels", the "Company" or "HBSL")

Grant Petersen, CEO of Brussels, said, "While it might appear that we
have been quiet since our last conference call in December, it has
actually been an extraordinary period in the growth of the Company. I
strongly recommend to all shareholders and interested parties that they
participate in our upcoming conference call, if possible, or at least
listen to the replay which will be hosted on our website." Petersen then
commented on the departure of John Veltheer, "John has been a close
friend and integral part of Brussels' early growth. John attributed a
good portion of his resignation decision to some nagging health issues
whereby he felt unable to maintain a pace commensurate with Brussels'
rapid growth. On behalf of Shareholders, Directors and Management, I
want to express our thanks and best wishes to John." Petersen finished
by adding that, "John's COO duties have been divided between Bob Wesolek
and myself."
