See's Deep Dark Chocolate Truffle

I am sad! Today I review the last of the See’s Limited Edition flavors for the year. Hopefully it’s a trend they continue to keep up, but for now it’s the last one. Today’s offering was sent to me as a sample, and it’s Deep Dark Chocolate Truffle. The description reads: “Dark chocolate blended with semi-sweet cocoa powder and cream drenched in premium dark chocolate”. Yummy!

First off, my apologies for a lack of an original photo this entry. I am currently driving cross-country because I am moving to Los Angeles. I received these samples once all my photography equipment was packed up. So for once I’m using a photo given to me from See’s.

 

See's Deep Dark Truffle II

The truffles are circular in shape, and are about 3/4 of an inch tall. A nice little chocolate tower, as so to speak. The chocolate enrobing is a gorgeous deep, rich chocolate color with three chocolate stripes decorating the top. The aroma of the truffle is a very deep and rich chocolatey scent, full of nice notes of cocoa, coffee and cream.

The first bite is lovely. The chocolate shell easily gives way to a rich interior which is a truffle in the best sense. It’s both dense and creamy, with a wonderfully smooth texture that isn’t slick or greasy. The dark chocolate is beautifully chocolatey, with notes of coffee, cream, and hazelnuts. There’s no fruitiness or acidity in this flavor, which is what some people struggle with in dark chocolate. Overall it’s incredibly decadent and wonderful flavor, which is a testament to Sees since the flavor is really simple, yet it’s executed beautifully.

Out of all the flavors I tried out of this limited edition run, I think this one falls in second place as my favorite after the Black Forest Truffle. This is a flavor that really captures the idea of a truffle in my mind: something that’s incredibly chocolatey and rich to eat. I can’t wait to have one with my coffee in the morning, I’d imagine it’d be a great combination. So if you can find these, I recommend them!

CONTEST: I have another two gift certificates from See’s to give away! It’s for one pound of these chocolate, and can be used in their stores or by phone at (800-895-7337). So how do you enter? Please comment on this post by Friday the 29th at noon, PST (since I’ll be on the west coast now!) and share your favorite type of Halloween candy. I’ll choose a winner randomly from those who enter. Best of luck!

  3. I’m going to go old-school and say that the best Halloween candy are the Brachs mellocreme pumpkins…fresh Mary James come in a close 2nd (although I have yet to find any bags of the Wicked Mix here in the midwest).

  4. I have to say Candy Corn.  It’s a love-hate relationship, actually.  I tend to eat WAY too much of it one weekend, swear off of it until next year….but then find myself buying another bag just a few days later!

  9. I love love love Mary Jane peanut butter kisses this time of year. It seems like most people don’t like them, but that just means more for me! I also liked any Halloween-shaped chocolates- chocolate eyeballs, chocolate pumpkins…. I loved the festivity.

  10. I like the mixed bags of treats you can get around Halloween—usually I get a bag of chocolates and a bag of Nerds/Sweet Tarts (even though I hardly get any trick or treaters). That way I have lots of options!
