ChocolateBet: August 20, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:

1/2 truffle
Dark Chocolate Honey Truffle
Good +
Weight: .3 oz. (9.43 g.) (estimate for 1/2 truffle)
Calories: 45 calories
Cost: $3.00 for 1 truffle
Purchased from: beekind, Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA

This big, fat dark chocolate honey bumblebee of a truffle from beekind (Sebastopol, CA) was all about the rich, creamy dark ganache -- akin to a rich, chocolate creme brulee. I did not, however, taste any distinct honey taste. Tomorrow

I'll try the milk chocolate version of this same truffle to see if I can taste a bit o' the bee.

Hats off to the Saffron and Acacia Honey (see yesterday's post) that I bought at beekind, along with these dark and milk chocolate honey truffles. The combination of the saffron and the honey yesterday was amazing, especially with some lavender buds over vanilla ice cream.

Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Honey Theme Week.
