I have to be honest. I’m not usually the biggest fan of cordial-like chocolates. Bad memories from low-quality chocolate samplers from my youth, perhaps?
Still, I could pass up the chance to try some fruit-centered dark chocolates from Wolfgang, thanks to Angela and her offer of samples. 100% All-natural fruit and fruit juice? Preservative and trans-fat free? Ok!
I let them sit on the counter for a few days until one evening, while watching Mad Men, I decided to give one a try. I selected the blueberry flavor. WOAH- delicious! I reached for another: raspberry. Incredible! Alright, better try the final flavor, cranberry, to compare while the others are still fresh on the taste buds. Amazing! The fillings are sweet without being cloying, and there are noticeable pieces of real fruit.
Two other cool things about these Wolfgang fruit chocolates: they’re pretty healthy (especially the blueberry which is just 80 calories for two) and they’re not expensive ($5.89 for baskets of about 5 ounces).
Buy them online or at many Whole Foods, and discover a kind of chocolate you may have never known could be so tasty!
