Originally I was kind of surprised to see that there was only 5 items in the box. Then I figured since all the items are either handmade or from smaller vendors then they are a bit pricier than what I am used to.
Who wouldn't like to receive a box of nice candy candy chocolates and right before Valentine's Day! I planned that one well.
Pomegranate, Cherry, Cinnamon, and Cranberry flavored candy. These candies are all hand made and have nice designs on them.
They taste really good.
The “heart” of a chocolate truffle is a term coined by Neo Cocoa founder Christine Doerr, who adds flavor twists on traditional French or European-style truffles, creating a confection much more delicate than its hard-shelled American-style counterpart.
This is a box of just 2 pieces, one of each. The one with lime zest was very limey tasting! What a strange combination. The chocolate was very smooth and creamy. Very nice.
Dark chocolate flecked with peanut butter toffee & smoked serano sea salt
Eclipse Chocolate Cinnamon Brown Sugar - $4
Milk chocolate flecked with muscovado sugar, cinnamon bread crumb & ginger
Eclipse Chocolate Salted Dulce de Leche - $4
White chocolate flecked with caramelized cocoa butter, pretzel & black sea
salt (31% Cocoa Butter)
I have not tried any of these yet but they all look really unusual and amazing! I'm looking forward to tasting the new flavors.
Treatsie is $15 a month plus shipping and handling which is another $4.95. I don't really like getting boxes that charge shipping separately. I would prefer they just put it into the price of the box. I used a promo code that gave me $5 off so it was like getting free shipping.
Treatsie also has a Taster box that you can get for just $5 and free shipping! They will send you 2 - 3 samples of the types of high-end sweets so you can try it out before signing up! If you're interested, you can find out more at www.treatsie.com
