I have to say that there is nothing that I’ve tried from Vosges that I haven’t liked, so I was excited to see that they sent me a Valentine gift which included one of their awesome Flaming Heart chocolates and a cute heart shaped box of their Caramel Toffee. The Flaming heart is awesome — shaped like a flaming heart, it comes in three flavors — Red Fire, Amalfi & Barcelona. They sent me the Red Fire which is dark chocolate with chillies and cinnamon. Nice and spicy — but not too hot. Just enough heat to make things interesting. The Amalfi looks intriguing — white chocolate, pink peppercorns and lemon zest. I think it would make a great chocolate bar and I hope this means they have one in the works!
The Caramel Toffee is lovely — a nice light, crisp crunch as you bite into it (no teeth breaker here). It’s coated in a thick layer of chocolate and nuts. Just what a toffee should be.
And if you are looking for a Valentine gift for your sweetheart, I have to mention their truffles. I was up in Chicago over the holidays and stopped in the Vosges on Michigan Ave. to get myself a treat. I opted for a box of truffles and I think each one was better then the last. Some of my favorites included the Ambrosia — a bright, fresh citrus flavored truffle — and the Woolloomooloo — coconut and chocolate.
I received some of my Vosges as samples and bought the others in person at one of their shops, but you can also buy these lovelies through their website.
