I walked into Vosges and was impressed with the store alone. It had a much cleaner appearance than the typical dark Godiva and Lindt shoppes found in malls. I browsed through their exotic collection of various truffles. They were giving out the Selassie variety as a sample today. It was unreal. The pumpkin flavor shone through the delicious chocolate along with the allspice making for a great combination tasting something like a rich chocolaty pumpkin mousse. In addition, after browsing for about 10 minutes, and expressing interest in several of the dark chocolate truffles. I asked for one of the Balsamico (balsamic vinegar and hazelnut) truffles. The clerk mentioned that this was also his personal favorite and gave me one without a charge.
Finally, I settled on having a taste of their ice cream as an after-lunch snack. After spending more than a couple minutes drooling at their selections (which were actually only four), I decided on a scoop of the Naga, described as sweet Indian curry and fresh young coconut in a creamy custard ice cream. This was an accurate description, and for me, a departure from my usual choice of anything chocolate for a dessert. I was not disappointed. The flavors were true and clear; the curry standing out in a mildly sweet fashion and the coconut remaining almost as an afterthought on the tongue. This, undoubtedly, was better than any chocolate ice cream Ive ever had.
