It's the beginning of our summer here in California, and I'm already hoping I can make a trip to the cooler Swiss Alps to check out local Swiss chocolates. Maybe next summer.

Welcome to Day #3 of Swiss Chocolate Theme Week. Most of the chocolates I'm featuring this week are Swiss-made for U.S. or International companies. Toblerone, part of Mondelez Global LLC, makes a variety of iconic triangular-shaped bars in Switzerland.

Today's Limited Edition Toblerone SnowTop offering—the Swiss Milk and White Chocolate with Honey and Almond Nougat bar—had the classic mountain range shape, a row of 12 perfectly aligned chocolate peaks fused together. The difference? This bar was topped with white chocolate "snow."

Creamy and crispy, this milk bar was quite sweet.

Truffili - Coconut Curry and Ginger truffles - June 20, 2016

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

Truffili di Pellegrini
1.) Coconut Curry - OK+
2.) Ginger - Good
Weight: .8 oz. (22.5 g.) / 3.2 oz. (90 g.) in total box of 8 pieces
Calories: 120 calories (estimate) in 2 pieces

This was Day #7 of a theme week devoted to India-inspired Chocolates, and Day #2 of Swiss Chocolate Theme Week.

Today I sampled the two remaining flavors in an India-inspired variety box of truffles, made in Switzerland for Truffili di Pellegrini (Point Richmond, CA): Coconut Curry and Ginger.

Of the two, the Ginger was my favorite. It was quite sweet, but had authentic tasting ginger flavor.
