last Friday? I know you've got more! Get those posts ready to link up!
I signed up a while back with Chocolate.com to "blog for chocolate" (hello - dream job). The first chocolate they sent was melted (*sniff* - poor truffles) by the UPS man, though probably not intentionally I suppose! Who keeps a box of chocolates in a hot truck for 13 hours when it's over 90 degrees out?? Sigh - I know by the spoonfuls of melted truffle that it would have been fabulous in original condition!
So those lovely peeps at Chocolate.com sent me more chocolate! This time, it was mostly not melted! There was a variety of chocolates and hubby generously volunteered to help me with the tasting.
First was Bochox by Bloomsberry & Co.:
This chocolate bar was nice, smooth and creamy, plus it's packaged so cleverly. Click the pic to enlarge and read the humorous box! Great chocolate in great packaging! How can you go wrong? 2 thumbs up!
Next was Santander Dark Chocolate (70% Cacao) with Passion Fruit:
This chocolate bar was a more bitter chocolate, but the passionfruit added a nice little crunch and just the right amount of sweetness without overpowering the chocolate flavor. Another 2 thumbs up!
Then was the Hachez 88% Pemier CRU Bar:
This chocolate bar is for serious chocolate-tasters. I expected more bitterness, but was surprised by the flavor. It was very creamy, smooth, and not bitter, just not very sweet. Thumbs up from me, but thumbs down from hubs only because he is not a bittersweet chocolate fan.
Last was Chocolate Visions Inc. 6 piece Spring Collection:
Mmmmm. Truffles. These dark chocolate truffles include ingredients like olive oil and creme fraiche. Very creamy and a nice flavor. Also really pretty with the flowers on top. 2 thumbs up and our fave of all the chocolates!
Overall - a delightful chocolate tasting!! These are some high quality chocolate bars and truffles. I might be getting spoiled - fake chocolate is starting to lose its appeal (I have never been a chocolate "snob").
