Vosges Treats

Vosges_flaming_heart

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.
