Thorntons Decadently Dark Collection

I found this at CostPlus after Christmas.

This collection of dark chocolates was from the United Kingdom, and it contained seven different kinds of truffles, all with 70% cacao: passionfruit caramel, lime and chili, crunchy praline, salted caramel, sour cherry, double chocolate and a solid dark chocolate. Of course, I tried the double chocolate one first, and it was pretty good. Nice dark chocolate flavor, but nothing special. Then I tried a passionfruit caramel, and I really liked it. Passionfruit is an uncommon flavor, and it went very well with the caramel and the chocolate. I also split a lime and chili truffle with a co-worker, and we agreed it tasted more like lavender than lime or chili. The praline and salted caramel were reportedly good, but the sour cherry was very sweet (“too much like candy” said one co-worker), and the solid one was “boring”. Oh well, they can’t all be winners.

All in all, this was a great way to kick off the new year at the office!
