ChocolateBet: February 20, 2010

Chocolate of the Day:
2 pieces
Luca Chocolate
Bourbon and black pepper truffles
Good + - Very Good
Weight: .65 oz. (18.4 g.) for 2 pieces (estimate)
Calories: 97.5 calories (estimate)
Cost: $16.95 total for small "bacon box" that includes these, and 2 other chocolate items
Purchased from: Luca Chocolate via site

These two pieces made up the last of three items in the Luca Chocolate "bacon box" assortment. They were tasty; however, I was a little unsure about whether these were bourbon and black pepper truffles, as I tasted neither bourbon nor black pepper. (My favorite item in this bacon box assortment was the chocolate dipped bacon - which was excellent.)

Hats off to chocolatiers who have mastered the art of flavoring chocolate. Too much can overpower and render an item inedible, and not enough can be frustrating. And there is such a fine line between the two.
