Anglesey Sea Salted Caramel Truffles
Opening the truffles were almost like opening a present as the anticipation of what we were about to find was just immense. We opened the box to find that the truffles were packaged in little bags, we then opened them and eagerly reached for the rich milk chocolate truffles which were coated in cocoa powder. Upon taking a bite, we tasted the smooth chocolate first then we bit into the sweet gooey caramel filling inside. We were soon greeted with bursts of subtle flavours of sea salt in it. The combination of flavours somehow worked perfectly and we loved it! This was also a favourite amongst our kids as well as family members who were not keen on alcohol.
Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles
We were excited to try these pink truffles as we wanted to know what was really special about it. We inspected it first and it looked perfectly smooth with a dusting of icing sugar on it. Upon taking a tiny bite, we immediately knew that it was one of a kind. The smooth Belgian white chocolate just melted in our mouth and it tasted heavenly. On the inside of the truffles, there was a soft creamy centre of white chocolate flavoured with real Champagne. The Champagne flavour was strong but not overpowering and it felt luxurious and tasted perfect.
Curious about these Prosecco Truffles, we gave it a quick lick to find it was coated in icing sugar. The next bite introduced us to the smooth texture of the milk chocolate which we were already familiar and in love with. These prosecco truffles were filled with a creamy chocolate centre which was mixed with real Prosecco. We found the initial flavour of the Prosecco too strong but this slowly mellowed down. We were not surprised that it was not our favourite as we generally prefer drinking Champagne anyday to Prosecco.
We inspected the Champagne truffles curiously, and similar to the earlier truffles, these were perfectly made and coated with icing sugar. Our first bite proved that we were right, this was made with quality smooth milk chocolate. As we continued to bite deeper into the truffle, we discovered its middle was a creamy centre infused with real Champagne. Again, the flavours were dancing in our mouth, we loved the burst of Champagne as well as the smooth milk chocolate. It was perfect.
Our verdict: It is hard to pick a favourite out of the four, but clearly it was a choice between the Anglesey Sea Salt Caramel, the Champagne truffle and the Pink Champagne Truffle. We had to try these truffles many times but decided that it was a tie in the end. Because we are not fans of Prosecco, somehow the Prosecco Truffle flavour was not our favourite but if you love Prosecco, then you would certainly love the truffles as well.
