Chocolate is my number one food love. As you might recall, I’m no stranger to chocolate, having worked at a local chocolatier for over 5 years in high school and college. So I’ve sampled my fair share.
The ultimate in chocolate decadence is the chocolate truffle… I have just been sampling the smoothest, richest chocolate truffle ever: Nicobella Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles!
Aside from their buttery texture, Nicobella truffles are natural, organic, fair-trade, VEGAN chocolates. Yep, that’s right! Pretty much really-good-for-you-chocolates!
I was shocked to remember these are dairy-free truffles – instead of heavy cream, they use oat milk. Instead of refined sugars – raw agave nectar or brown rice syrup (a little cane sugar in the chocolate coating). I am amazed chocolate can taste so decadent without those typical heavy ingredients!
Then there’s Nicobella’s incredibly unusual flavors. Nicobella uses ingredients rich in antioxidants (blueberries, green tea, sunflower seed butter, and pumpkin) to create a chocolate truffle that taste delicious and give you a little boost.
The 70% Dark Chocolate Truffle Assortment contains: Blueberry Almond, Ginger Green Tea, Pumpkin Chai, Pure Cocoa Bliss, Sunflower Banana Butter, and Walnut Flaxseed – don’t those sound delicious!? Well, they are! It was so fun to taste-test flavors I have never heard of before! While Green Tea wasn’t my cup of tea (haha), it is mild at least. Blueberry Almond and Walnut Flaxseed were my favorites!
Beyond giving the world delicious chocolate truffles, Nicobella is committed to Fair Trade – their chocolate manufacturer Theo Chocolate™ is the only bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the States that is both Fair Trade and organic. And, Nicobella donates a portion of their truffle proceeds to their favorite animal organizations! Follow them on Facebook and Twitter. And, Nicobella would love for you to sign up for their newsletter – who doesn’t need a little chocolate in their inbox!
