Hi everyone~ Long time no see (as usual >_> ehhe) It was mad cold this week - it actually snowed today! I don't remember the last time it snowed this early in the DC metro area....perfect weather for just snuggling up in my favorite blanket ^_^ I'm loving the change of the season because I am liking this winter's fashion this year ahha This winter I've been digging black tights with subtle patterns, faux fur (drooling over this), and chunky sweaters :D
Anyway, the one-piece-free-a-month shtick Godiva Club has going is genius because every time I go in to pick up my one freebie I end up with a little gold bag filled with 3+ of the latest releases. Which I'm sure is the whole point but it's ridiculous how I KNOW what they're doing but I still fall for it. Every month. Without fail.
This post is a little late in how some of these aren't still being sold in Godiva shops anymore >_> but yeah.... any excuse for snack/dessert porn....
|Awww I forgot to do a cross section of the Pumpkin Cheesecake one...ate it too fast ahahah|
Crème Brûlée (white) - just a mouthful of white chocolate and milk chocolate. Doesn't really taste like a crème brûlée....no subtlety. Did not like. But it's pretty to look at though...I dig the contrast of the two halves~ I also expected more out of the crackly sprinkles (burnt sugar I imagine), but the whole truffle was just cloyingly sweet. Not particularly recommended.
Caramel Apple Tarte (chocolate + green drizzle) - this actually tasted like apple spice :) It was a little artificial tasting but quite distinct and accurate with the caramel apple flavor! Recommended.
Pumpkin Cheesecake - This was one of the half-half truffles :) One half was filled with cheesecake, the other half was pumpkin. It was great because it actually tasted liked pumpkin cheesecake! It was very yummy despite the garish orange coating. Recommended - this was my favorite of this batch!
|A seasonal favorite returns! Our wickedly delicious Pumpkin Patch Truffles are filled|
with creamy pumpkin-spice ganache and enrobed in milk chocolate. The perfect treat on a cool fall day.
It would have been perfect if they got the Pumpkin Cheesecake truffle with the packaging of the Pumpkin Patch truffle, especially since the Pumpkin Cheesecake truffle was the definite winner :)
And since November is right around the corner, I get my November free chocolate soon :D ahah I'm especially excited to go to Godiva this month since I bet all the Halloween theme products will be on sale ;)
