I was fortunate to be able to try a brand new treat this week, one that’s only just been introduced to the world in the past month. I’m referring to Celebrate Chocolate Truffles.
From the website –
- The delicate Celebrate chocolate blend is created from rare, 100+ year old Venezuelan highland cocoa trees, and rich coastal Guatemalan cocoa. The old plantations were cultivated organically before there was any other way. The ancient recipe enchants with exquisite honey from flowering banana trees, coupled to a touch of chile. Savor traditions.
- Delivering powerful nutrition to your body with a sensationally unique taste, Celebrate Chocolate is accented with 59 concentrated whole foods – fruits, nuts, grains, and herbs. Cultivated sustainably, all are freshly harvested from pristine fields in southwestern Brazil. Savor nutrients.
- To bathe, your body from the inside with the nutrients it needs for smoother skin, silkier hair, and stronger nails, Celebrate adds lush avocado, tropical macadamia, and omega-rich hemp nut oils. Savor beauty.
Celebrate Truffles are hand made, all natural chocolates made from premium cocoa and natural plant oils and do not contain any preservatives, artificial coloring, MSG or chemicals. It is recommended that you eat one truffle 15-20 minutes before a meal or if you want a snack. The creators suggest that if you eat a Celebrate Truffle slowly to savor the flavor you’ll also be controlling your appetite and losing weight.
I was most interested in the Celebrate Classics Truffle box, which contained 1 Light Chocolate Truffle (62% Cocoa), 1 Dark Chocolate Truffle (73% Cocoa), and 3 Cocoa Covered Almonds. I ate the Light Chocolate Truffle when I got a little hungry at work and it did keep my hunger at bay for about an hour. The light chocolate had a similar taste to a piece of regular candy. I was really wanting a piece of candy that evening so I ate the Dark Chocolate Truffle. The dark chocolate had a bittersweet taste very much like regular dark chocolate. The texture of the two is very thick and smooth, not grainy at all. Between the two I favored the milk chocolate. I do not eat nuts so I shared the 3 cocoa covered almonds with a coworker. She mentioned that the first one she ate held her hunger off for an hour.
I also received a Celebrate Creations Truffle Box, which contained 1 Cherry Vanilla, 1 Roasted Almond Bit, and 1 Mountain Raspberry truffle. These I shared with my Mom, who enjoyed them so much she wrote a review about them on her blog. She loved the taste and she found they did help her fend off her hunger.
Celebrate Chocolate Truffles may be purchased online in 12 and 24 piece boxes. They also carry a Double and Triple Celebration Gift Pack. The Mini boxes are available to purchase from retailers.
One winner will receive two sample packs of Celebrate Chocolate Truffles.
