Cowgirl Chocolates Review and Giveaway

I Love Chocolate!

That being said, when I was given the opportunity to review a sample pack from Cowgirl Chocolates, I was super excited!

“Cowgirl Chocolates are sweet and spicy gourmet chocolates for adventurous chocolate lovers and packaged as unique beautiful gifts for any and all occasions”

Cowgirl Chocolates was founded in 1997 by Marilyn Lysohir. She combined her love for art and chocolate to create a one-of-a-kind product. Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 16 gourmet awards as well as 2 packaging awards. She has also been featured in the New York Times and on the Food Network’s, “Extreme Cuisine”.



SPICY TRUFFLES:
Red-Raspberry Dark Chocolate
Gold-Double Dark Chocolate
Dark Blue-Hazelnut Milk Chocolate
Copper-Cappiccuno
Clear-Habanero Caramel
MILD TRUFFLES:
Aqua-Double Dark Chocolate
Silver-Milk Chocolate
Orange-Ivory Orange
Fuschia Red-Raspberry Lemon

So, What did I think?
These were so good! I first tried the ivory orange. It was delicious! There was a tiny bit of spice to it, but not much. I didn't really expect that. I thought that the "spicy" was just a title... I didn't really read more into the information that came before I tried it. I'm just glad I didn't pop the habanero caramel into my mouth first... But. I did decide to try that one next. I was very careful, and just took a little bite. Whew! That almost knocked my socks off. I am pretty much a wimp when it comes to spicy foods, So I was coughing a little, but it was so good! And addicting... I kept going back for little bites... hehe.

Needless to say, I was very impressed! These are some good tasting chocolates!
