Godiva Bakery Dessert Truffles Collection Box

These Limited Edition truffle collection from Godiva was a gift from my boyfriend. He likes finding candies that I haven’t had before, it’s a fun challenge for him. The flavor variation in these truffles caught his eye, and figured it’s be a fun sampling for the two of us. The collection is called “Bakery Desserts” and is flavored after different baked sweets: Chocolate Lava Cake, Red Velvet, Carrot, Tiramisu, Strawberry Tart and Cheesecake.

Each truffle is large, about the size of a golf ball. They’re well packaged in an oblong box that keeps them safe and secure. They all look different from one another, but it’s hard to tell which pattern represents each flavor. I really wish they came out with a flavor key, but sadly there isn’t one included.

 

Godiva Bakery Dessert Truffles Collection

Chocolate Lava Cake: Exterior is dark chocolate with a powered sugar exterior. This had a rich, velvety chocolate ganache on the inside. The ganache is bittersweet and extremely intense in it’s flavor. The bottom of the truffle has a more liquid chocolate to it to give the “molten effect. It’s a really tasty chocolate too, so it works both as an interpretation of a dessert and still hold up as a truffle.

Red Velvet Cake: Exterior is white with dark red striped. It tastes like chocolate. Nothing really says anything about red velvet to me. The white chocolate kinda feels like the white butter cream/cream cheese frosting you’re supposed to get with a red velvet cake. But really this truffle is just a plain chocolate ganache with a fancy name.

Carrot Cake: Smells coconutty right away, and the exterior is milk chocolate truffle with nuts outside. I took a bite and first thought it was tiramisu because I got a mouthful of creamy, cinnamon tasting cream. Then I realized there was another flavor half to the truffle, which I then took a bite of and it tasted of carrot cake with a creamy cinnamon hit and a carroty flavor. It’s nice, but odd to think you’d get a different flavor depending on what side you bite down on first.

Tiramisu: The exterior is a white chocolate with dark chocolate sprinkles on top. This truffle had a better construction. The flavored interiors were split top to bottom this time, so at once I knew the flavor as soon as I bit in. It has a wonderful creamy flavor that had a nice addition of mocha to it. The chocolate exterior added some extra sweetness and creaminess to it that was really delicious.

Cheesecake: Exterior of milk chocolate with graham bits on it. This one is intensely rich and creamy. The inside is a sweet cream cheese interior with a nice tart notes to it. It’s paired with a smooth chocolate filling, so it ends up being really rich and flavorful and faithful to the original dessert.

Strawberry Tart: Exterior of milk chocolate with dark chocolate striped. Again I took a bite of this one not knowing what to expect. Then the truffle I bit in half and there were two distinct sides to the truffle. I took a bite of the darker one and it was an intense strawberry jam. Ah hah, I know what this is now. The jam was very flavorful and fresh, and the creamy other half gives it that nice custard flavor that tarts have.

This was a really nice truffle sampling. Each flavor was accurate to the dessert they were paying homage to. They feel unique and special, so it’s a good treat for others and yourself.
