ChocolateBet: March 4, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:
2 pieces
XOX Truffles
1 Lemon/Citron and 1 Caramel Truffle
Both were Very Good; I liked the Lemon
Wt: ~.8 oz. for 2 pcs.
Calories: ~ 115 for 2 pcs.
Cost: $1.50 for 2 truffles (.75 per truffle)
Purchased from: XOX Truffles, in San Francisco, CA

I purchased a small bag of 6 truffles at XOX Truffles during my last trip up to San Francisco a few days ago, and have been picking them off - two by two the past few days. They offer a nice range of flavors. Cautionary note, these are prone to getting soft so be careful not to squish them together.
