Allison's Gourmet - Artisan Chocolate Assortment

You love my blog and you want to shower me with gifts, right?! So, since you asked, one of my favorite gifts to receive is a box of Allison's Gourmet truffles. Allison's only makes artisan, vegan treats that are so good, no one would ever know that they were vegan as they'd stand up to the best traditional chocolatiers.

The artisan chocolate assortment I received included some of the most delectable truffles I've ever tasted. From the orange blossom topped with orange zest to the raspberry blush with freeze-dried raspberries, there is at least one chocolate in this assortment to please everyone. The peppermint swirl is sure to capture your taste buds as the coconut joy gives you joy in a way that only a coconut would understand.

Besides the truffles, this box included 4 different caramels and caramels are what I miss most in this world. My favorite was the salted chocolate, but the pure vanilla, butterscotch pecan, and mocha weren't far behind.

Their signature purple gift box makes such a nice presentation as well. The only complaint I really have is that they are super expensive. This box of 20 cost $55 plus they suggest you ship it with a $4 cold pack by 2-day air. All encompassing, this would cost you $78 to ship to DC. Yikes! That is $3.90 per tiny truffle!

So while they are delicious, I won't be buying these for myself anytime soon. Oh, so back to my first suggestion -- if you'd like my shipping address, just let me know. I'm happy to send it to you! Thanks, in advance, for your love.
