Truffles and chocolates... nibble or pop 'em?
I splurged and ordered an expensive (for me, anyway) batch of chocolates from Moonstruck Chocolates in Portland OR. They are having a free shipping sale which enticed me - shipping is usually over $20 (cold box with ice packs) for all US states other than Oregon and Washington, which have a $5 shipping rate. Highly recommended, even though the ice packs had melted and a few pieces of chocolates had too, but what can you expect in 90 degree and over heat?
Anyway, my question - do you do like I do and nibble your little nugget of lusciousness to prolong the joy, or do you toss the whole thing in your mouth and chomp away, giving only 10 seconds or so to taste the chocolaty goodness like my husband does? Frankly, that drives me nuts. Savor these delicious morsels!!
BTW, their Summer Fruits (strawberry and peach) and Citrus (key lime and lemon) collections are amazing. Actually, all of the truffle flavors are top notch, with quite a few having liqueur flavored centers. They even have whiskey and craft beer flavors available, which I've not tried.
I think I'll hide the boxes from my husband. These need to be cherished not gobbled!!
