Premium Chocolatiers Valentine's Day Review/GIVEAWAY



When it comes to Valentine's Day gift ideas, there is always one sure bet for the lady in your life...CHOCOLATE!!  Show me a regular candy bar and I wouldn't bat an eyelash but show me truffles and I am your best friend.  

When Premium Chocolatiers sent me an email about their Valentine's Day chocolates, I had to wipe the drool off of my keyboard.  It takes a lot to get to me like that because I don't have a penchant for sweets but my intuition was flashing and now, once I have tasted them, all I can say is WOW!



When the box arrived I couldn't tear it open fast enough.  I was captivated by the pink and brown (in my opinion, the best color combination!) and I was nice enough to wait until I could open it with Dexter.  You see, he saw the email that I got and the pictures of the chocolates and he was, I think, more excited to try them that I was.

Fast forward to our dessert time.  You know dessert time, right?  Thats the moment, right after dinner when the kids are begging for a treat.  I went to the kitchen, poured a glass of Cabernet for myself and grabbed the gorgeous box of treats.  Nothing goes better with chocolate than a nice glass of red wine....nothing!



Now that I have your attention, lets discuss the truffle flavors. From left to right you have: Milk Fudge, Raspberry Truffle, Salted Caramel, Grand Marnier and Coffee Truffle.

Forward to Dexter begging for the Milk Fudge which I happily fork over.  I chose the Salted Caramel for myself, Raspberry Truffle for Oliver and Coffee Truffle for Jason.  Of course, it wouldn't be fair for my review if I didn't nibble on each piece first however.  I will tell you that they are all amazingly rich and decadent.  I was really in heaven with this box.  I may have to hide the rest so no one can find them.

My absolute favorite was the Salted Caramel.  It was almost like a salty chocolate coated carmel brownie.  Yes, that good. I also absolutely loved the Coffee Truffle.  Jason adored the Coffee Truffles and that is saying a lot since he is not much of a sweets guy either.  All of these truffles were amazing with the red wine, which enhances the chocolate experience.  Don't believe me, try it for yourself.  You can thank me later.  I have to admit that I liked each of the truffles although I am not very keen with fruity chocolates.  I just don't get it.  I like a chocolate covered strawberries but thats about where I draw the line.  Lucky for me, the kids will never turn down a piece of chocolate and they loved the Raspberry Truffles.  Win-win.

One thing I forgot to mention, which you aren't going to believe is that these are VEGAN truffles.  I simply couldn't believe that they are egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free.  WOW!  Now I can have my chocolates and eat them too.  

a Rafflecopter giveaway

*I was given a box of truffles in exchange for my honest review.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  All opinions are 100% my own.
