ChocolateBet: August 21, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:

1/4 truffle
Milk Chocolate Honey Truffle
Good - Good +
Weight: .15 oz. (4.8 g.) (estimate)
Calories: 23 calories (estimate)
Cost: $3.00 for 1 truffle
Purchased from: beekind, Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA

beekind (Petaluma, CA) sells jars and bottles of local, raw and varietal honey. Other "gifts from the hive" offer dark and milk chocolate honey truffles. beekind's oversized truffles are wrapped and then placed into chocolate colored paper cups -- very handy if you have to transport these and they get jostled against something else in a bag.

Yesterday I sampled beekind's dark chocolate honey truffle; and today I tried their sweet, milk chocolate honey truffle, filled with a very creamy, rich smooth ganache. These generously sized chocolates can easily be sliced down the middle and shared.

My only quibble: With this style truffle, I couldn't taste the wildflower honey.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Honey Theme Week.
