Anyhoo. Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Belgian Flaked Truffles. You'll find these in the holiday candy section. A box of 16 truffles costs $2.99.
I didn't realize until I got these home and read the back of the box that inside are 8 milk chocolate and 8 dark chocolate truffles.
A mom's (my) take: These aren't my favorite. (That's what we taught Jack to say when he was little and didn't like a food served to him.) I feel guilty saying this about chocolate, but I did not like these. The milk chocolate truffles were a bit bland and chalky. The dark chocolate ones were better, but still with a strange texture and lacking in flavor. That's ok...there are so many other holiday treats at Trader Joe's that I LOVE; I'll spend my money on those.
Overall rating: 2 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: I LOVE these. It's really interesting how the consistency can be so light yet be tasty and rich in flavor at the same time... That's really all I have. Get them. Now.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
