Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week -- an opportunity to introduce some lovely green color (and flavors) to chocolate.
These Mint Emerald filled chocolates (part of a Variety Emerald box of 4 "green" flavors), from Kohler Co. (Kohler, WI) tasted very fresh.
Freshness, flavor balance, texture/melt, and quality ingredients are all key for good-tasting truffles and filled chocolates. But if the chocolates aren't fresh, other good qualities may not matter. Fortunately, this attractive emerald green milk chocolate, filled with creamy, milk chocolate ganache and natural mint flavor, was great on all counts.
I also sampled a Kohler "Green Tea" chocolate (shown at right with two mint leaves) with a sip of hot mint green tea, from the same, 4-piece Variety Emerald collection box. It was attractive and authentic tasting as well.
Tomorrow I'll feature the Kohler Absinthe "Emerald" chocolate. (Yes, the herbal concoction that is Absinthe also includes members of the mint family.)
