Purchased from: Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge, in midtown Anchorage, Alaska

Earlier this week, I visited the (newer) Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge location in downtown Anchorage. Today I visited the Lounge located in midtown Anchorage  -- for another round of new truffles. Both Chocolate Lounge locations offered their own chocolate truffles and two types of drinking chocolate; and both stocked a wonderful variety of chocolate bars and other items from many different parts of the world. (The midtown location also had space for a few more tables and some additional gift items.) My favorite of today's batch listed above was the Purple Infusion (with a lavender-infused ganache, and lavender petals/buds on top). The Modern Dwellers truffles I tasted were made with a skillful blend of flavors and textures. The lavender petal garnish provided just the right light, crunchy texture on top, and an additional burst of taste. The Purple Infusion truffle was a great choice for lavender lovers.
