Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.

Skinnygirl* Chocolate Almond Belgian Dark Chocolate Truffles were indeed, as the name implied, made with Belgian chocolate (no source specified).

The package I bought contained six, individually-wrapped serving packets. And each individual packet held two small truffles with almond bits in a red plastic base/holder (100 calories for each two-piece serving).

These dark chocolates were rich and indulgent, and managed to taste both silken and solid. They contained cocoa butter, cream and organic coconut oil. Yes, the truffles contained satisfying fat, (but "no trans fat"), and that filled me up.

These Skinnygirl chocolates were not low calorie per se, but rather a great example of simple, elegantly designed portion control. Give someone a relatively small piece of concentrated, rich, dark chocolate, and they may not want/need another piece.

The truffles were also gluten free and contained no preservatives.

*These Skinnygirl candy offerings were distributed by Rivo USA Co Ltd, Van Nuys, CA
