XOX new flavor and vegan truffles

Stanley Stephan | Apr 9, 2003 07:55 PM

I was buying some gift boxes, and diet or not, I was going to eat my free truffle.

XOX has a green tea flavor now. It has a beautiful celadon colored powdered sugar. I don't think everyone will like it, but I did. It has a bitterish tea taste, but bitter in a good way. Somewhere there is just the perfect beverage to pair this up with, but I can't think of it yet.

For my other truffle, I finally decided to try a vegan truffle. They are made with soy milk. There is still the same thin shell, but they are chewier than the regular truffles. If you aren't a vegan or lactose intolerant, I'd stick to the regular variety. However, it is one of the better vegan chocolates that I've tried and very, very close to the regular truffles.

While in the shop, check out the cute picture across from the truffle case titled "happily dying of chocolate".
