Last time (as well as the first) I visited London, I bought these amazing little truffle boxes. I rarely get to taste such small luxuries, so I was a bit skeptical at first. Not only is the price tag a bit steep, but I've never really loved chocolate and I never really fancied myself a chocolate girl. I'm much more of crème brulée, pana cotta or lemon-y girl (I have a serious addiction to lemons - I can't get enough of it!).
In spite of this, and because of the pretty packaging, I gave these a shot.
And boy, I did not regret it! Look at these - powdered with cocoa and filled with a dark chocolate center. Yum!
These were the milk chocolate ones, powered with white sugar. Heavenly small bites!
With these pink ones, the flavors were a bit hard to pinpoint, but I suspect it was white- and milk chocolate. All of the truffles had some champagne in them, which wasn't really that apparent, but it gave them a bit of a "boozy" flavor, something I like.
I think I know it all comes down to preferences.
All the same, I enjoyed these and I would highly recommend stopping by the little chocolate shop, if you're ever in London!
Charbonnel et Walker
The Royal Arcade

They have an assortment of different chocolates that a filled with all sorts of things. If anything, it's really just nice to go in there and look at all the prettiness.
Thank you for reading!
