What's New with Godiva? Truffles, Truffles and more Truffles!

If you find yourself often wandering through the Godiva section of your high-end department or book store and wishing to find something that you have never tried before, well, here are a few relatively new chocolate truffle products that might interest you.

The Godiva Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar is made with real cream and has a very soft, delicious interior. For a packaged truffle with a long shelf life, this one is definitely superior. It is designed to blow the minds of milk chocolate lovers, but even the dark chocolate-loving crew will enjoy this chocolate bar.

I bought it at an Ontario-based Chapters-Indigo right at the cash register, next to my all-time favourite Godiva bar - the Raspberry Dark Chocolate.

Godiva also recently introduced the 'Truffle Flight' collection.  A box of the Dark Decadence was given to me at Easter.  My favourite was the 72% Extra Dark Truffle, and I also liked the Chocolate Soufflé.  The Lava Cake truffle did taste like a lava cake and was rather good. However, I was not particular to the 50% Dark Chocolate truffle - it was rather sweet to me. But overall, the collection was a nice gift for a person who prefers dark chocolate.  

The other flavours in the Truffle Flight Collections are: Nut Lovers, Milk Chocolate Lovers, a Cake Flight Tasting, Heavenly Mousse and the Ultimate Dessert Truffle Flight, including a Red Velvet and a Crème Brûlée. The Nut Lovers looks the best to me, because of the Hazelnut Crunch. Yum!

Happy Tasting!
