As a small (but expensive) gift to myself, I've been considering buying a 16 piece box of Vosges truffles. The price, yes - it's daunting, but I'm willing to fork out the cash if they're worth it. Unfortunately, I don't believe they are sold anywhere close to me (in the D/FW area of Texas), so I'll have to have them shipped. I'm not interested in the chocolate bars or any of their other products at this time, strictly truffles.
My first question is - are they really worth the price? I'm very interested in sampling the more exotically-flavored truffles.
Secondly, what flavors do you think are exceptional?
I'm also willing to look at other brands of exotic truffles, so any suggestions?
