Bienvenue a (Welcome to) Day #4 of French Chocolate Theme Week.
Today I sampled the last truffle flavors from my recent XOX Truffles (San Francisco, CA) purchase.
The team at XOX offers truffles in the true French style, and they are creamy, authentic and delicious.
The Lavande (Lavender in French) truffle was suffused with beautiful lavender flower flavor. If you like lavender and dark chocolate, you'll love this one.
The Black and White truffle was a dark chocolate truffle covered in white chocolate.
The Hazelnut truffle had authentic hazelnut flavor (a great blend with chocolate) and was rolled in hazelnut bits.
The Cognac truffle was boozy and marvelous. I had tasted this one a few years ago, and decided to re-taste it with the others today, as I remembered it fondly. And while I may occasionally forget other details about life, I felt gratified to find that I wasn't wrong about this truffle.
