Organic Caramel Truffles, You Sexy Thing
See, I never liked caramel--to me it was always a chocolate wannabe that just wasn't cool enough to have cocoa in it

Organic Caramel Truffles. I adore thee.

I met someone!

See, I never liked caramel--to me it was always a chocolate wannabe that just wasn't cool enough to have cocoa in it.

And then two days ago, at a little paradise called the Whole Foods chocolate aisle, I finally met a caramel I kind of like. Really, really like. I bought a box of Organic Caramel Truffles for $6.99 and I'm a happy camper. It was the "truffle" part that called out to me.

Let it be known, I am head over heels in love with chocolate truffles. I think they make one of, if not the most, pleasurable experiences known in the chocolate world. I've had my share of good ones (Royce, I miss you) and bad ones, (Choxie, never call me again), but for the most part, truffles have been these sensual beings that never fail to excite me before, during, and after I eat them.

So I ripped the box open in the car and immediately, the smell of cocoa butter was intoxicating. Rrrrr. The truffle was dusted with cocoa powder--just the way I liked it--looking ever so handsome in deep brown hues. The caramel flavor lent itself nicely, almost like a smooth, sexy, milky-sweet indulgence that wraps around the tongue like silk. So consuming, it took command of my mouth so adamantly, there was nothing else left to do but surrender.

This could be serious.
