Cafe Tasse ganache filled bars

Checking out a new chocolate store, the sales clerk said these were flying out the door and they were on their third shipment since they opened a few weeks ago.

Well, yeah. I had the noir praline and it was dreamy and creamy.

I must have seen Cafe Tasse Belgium chooolates at a million stores and never gave them a try. I also bought one of the unfilled small bars which was dark chocolate mint. It had a true peppermint flavor and interesting little crystals but didn't knock my socks off like the praline.

Any other guidance on what they make that is good. I'm linking to their page in Chocospere since the Caffe Tasse website is not very helpful.

The little store near me has most, if not all of these products.

The blanc ciron - white chocolate with lemon ganache is sounding good. Or the milk orange.

In the bars without ganache, the Dark Chocolate bar with Szechuan pepper sounds good.

Also anyone tried the bagged fruit and nuts -
- Syrah Raisins with Three Chocolates
- Chocolate Coated Chinese Ginger
- Chocolate Coated Lemon Peel
- Chocolate Coated Pistachios

I should qualify that after doing a lot of tasting of high-end dark chocolates I'm a little burnt out on premium chocolates. I could care less about finish, snap, armoma, etc, etc. I just want chocolate to taste good. I don't want to admire its pedigree. So Caffe Tasse could be sheer junk for all I know, however it tasted really good and I didn't need a loan to buy it.

The actual Cafe Tasse website, FYI
