Trader Joe’s cocoa truffles

December 1, 2012

Been on quite the chocolate spree recently. Tried to take a break from it, so tried the truffles from Trader Joe’s, which is mainly easily-melted palm oil with cocoa powder and other support ingredients such as whey, vanilla, and sugar.

To be honest, this truffle didn’t wow me that much. There wasn’t a very intense cocoa flavor after it melted in the mouth, leaving a lot of palm oil residue. The vanilla was also a tad too strong. I will probably just go about making my own truffles from now on. But for the price, $2.99, the box at Trader Joe’s was a decent value.
