Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week.
Today's Natural Delights Truffles Chocolate Cherry Flavored rounds (with Medjool date centers), were distributed by Bard Valley Date Growers (Yuma, AZ).
Aroma notes included: cherry (cherry soda, cherry juice), milk chocolate, and very faint vanilla.
Texture: creamy outer shell (cherry and milk chocolate colored outer layers), with a natural, slightly chewy, date texture (fiber) at the center.
Flavor notes included: sweet cherry, milk chocolate, and subtle dried fruit (date)--yielding little bursts of sweet, authentic date flavor and texture. There were no whole or dried cherries in these confections, but the natural and added cherry flavor was convincing and appealing.
Ingredients: Milk Chocolate (Cane Sugar, Whole Milk, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Sunflower Lecithin, Vanilla Extract, Milk), Medjool Dates, Color Added (Fruit and Vegetable Extracts), Coconut Flour, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid.
