This fall, GODIVA Chocolatier introduces the first-ever Truffle Flights™ collection, an indulgent new tasting experience where every truffle tells a distinct story. Luckily for me, I was given the opportunity to sample a flight of truffles for myself! But, since it’s no fun to eat food alone, I invited my fabulous friend Rachel over for an afternoon of coffee, chatting and truffles.
We began our afternoon with two big cups of coffee and a box of GODIVA chocolates. Not just any chocolates though… I had a GODIVA Heavenly Mousse Truffle Flight™ to share with Rachel. Upon opening the box, we found six perfect little balls of chocolate that looked almost too good to eat.
We took the truffles out of the box and arranged them on a little plate so that we could easily enjoy them. With coffee in hand, we set out to learn about each of these little pieces of Heaven. Along with the Truffle Flight™ came an insert that explained the flavors what we would expect to find inside each truffle.
To experience the Heavenly Mousse Truffle Flight™, GODIVA suggests to eat the truffles in a particular order that builds in flavor and intensity, like a story being told with each bite.
We began with the Dark Chocolate Vanilla Mousse truffle. This truffle was covered in dark chocolate and filled with a light-as-air vanilla mousse. With the first bite, we knew we were going to be happy with this Truffle Flight™… the deep dark chocolate and the creamy inside was a perfect first bite.
Next we moved on to my favorite truffle, the Milk Chocolate Mousse. This truffle is a chocolate lovers dream with creamy milk chocolate mousse enrobed in milk chocolate… each bite melted in my mouth leaving me wanting more!
Up next was the surprisingly sweet Strawberry Mousse truffle. Filled with whipped strawberry and white chocolate mousse and then covered in white chocolate, this strawberry truffle is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Rachel’s favorite truffle, the Lemon Mousse, was next. Filled with tangy lemon and white chocolate mousse, the sweet aroma of lemon in this truffle made it almost irresistible.
Subtle, but still delicious, the Peach Mousse truffle was filled with luscious peach and white chocolate whipped mouse. The simple hints of peach in that reminded me of summer.
Finally, we finished the Truffle Flight™ with the Café Au Lait Mousse truffle filled with coffee and white chocolate whipped mousse. With each bite, the coffee intensified making this truffle my second favorite!
Rachel and I decided we now need to take a road trip to Brussels to visit the original GODIVA store. GODIVA was founded more than 85 years ago in Brussels, Belgium and since then, has grown to become the global leader in premium chocolates.
Seriously though, wouldn’t it be amazing to sit at a café in Brussels with Rachel, enjoy an espresso and indulge in Truffle Flight™… in the home of GODIVA?! I think there’s going to be a road trip in our future, Rachel!
