It’s been a really long time since I’ve had a See’s Candies near me, first of all.
There wasn’t any actually in Florida unless you count the pop up shops/kiosks that would come around but just during the holiday season. And as someone who grew up in California well it was kinda depressing. See’s has always kinda been my chocolate of choice. I mean I like Godiva but I’ve GROWN UP with See’s. So when they release their holiday truffles it was kinda sad I wasn’t able to try them, though sometimes I’d ask my mom to get me some and ship them to me.
This year they came out with 3 truffles… well 2 1/2 is more like it I guess.
I literally thought both the white and dark chocolate were strawberry filled, I guess I got too excited and misread… whoops. They also came out with the Black Forest truffle. I ended up grabbing all 3.
After realizing that the dark chocolate was indeed NOT strawberry filled I decided to just pop the whole thing in my mouth, sorry. But the chocolate was fluffy and creamy. It wasn’t overly sweet and the dark chocolate wasn’t at all bitter, it was perfect and comforting!
The strawberry white chocolate was pretty good; it was smooth and creamy and the strawberry flavor was definitely there. It paired so nicely with the white chocolate too! The only thing is I felt there was too much white chocolate, if you know what I mean. While the flavors both worked nicely together I could had used a bit more strawberry filling!
The Black Forest truffle was MY FAVORITE (I’m not sure seeing the inside really does anything but it makes for nice photos, right?)! It’s described as dark chocolate with tart cherries and that’s EXACTLY what it was! If you’re a fan of dark chocolate and cherries I would HIGHLY recommend this!
I’m so tempted to go back and get a whole box of these. They kind of remind me of those holiday cherry chocolates you know with the cream or the clear liquid in the middle BUT BETTER.
I’m obviously really excited about this truffle.
I’m also really excited to try the Easter truffles they come out with every year, there’s usually a lemon one that’s really good.
What’s your favorite chocolate shop between Godiva and See’s or is there another one you prefer?
