There was no resisting this cute box of truffles at Trader Joe's. Strawberry Champagne Truffles....champagne and strawberry in creamy white chocolate. I bought this box a week or so ago, but when I popped into TJs for a little bottle of bubbly yesterday, there were still plenty left.
A box of truffles costs $4.49.
A mom's (my) take: I'll tell you up front...I'm not a white chocolate fan. I actually missed that on the box where it mentions these are white chocolate. It may be clouding my review. I didn't even eat a whole truffle. The strawberry taste is definitely there, but no hint of champagne. They are creamy, very sweet, and if you like white chocolate, they just might be for you.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: I admit I'm not a huge fan of fruit being mixed with chocolate, but these are an exception. Strawberry-ness clearly emanates from these truffles, even when the first bit of the white chocolate coating touches your tongue. Of course, it is more flavorful inside! Although I have no idea what champagne tastes like, there is a different bubbly flavor mixed in with the strawberry, which I am sure must be the champagne flavoring. Even though they are very filling, I do recommend them! I might not try eating several at a time, though...

One more thing...I bought Trader Joe's pillar candles for some of our Christmas decor...they're AWESOME. Last forever, don't drip, highly recommend! Yay, TJs!
