Missionary Chocolates - Vegan Truffles

Perhaps I'm on a bit of a chocolate truffle kick. Whatever. When I was in Portland and saw that there was a local truffle company called Missionary Chocolates, I just had to try their truffles. Missionary Chocolates was founded in 2008 by Melissa Berry, a Naturopathic Physician. She started by giving her truffles away as gifts and a few months later won first place in the Northwest Chocolate Festival. And just like that, her business began. She is hoping to someday build an inpatient, integrative healing center in Portland funded solely by the chocolate.

I just bought a small box of two truffles. The Meyer Lemon Explosion is just that. Super lemony with a thick, rich soft center. There is something that is so right in these handcrafted jewels.

The other one I tried was the Spicy Cinnamon Chipotle. There was so much kick to this one, it almost caught me off guard. Loved it!

If you'd like to try them for yourself, you can order them online here for $3 each.
