Cowgirl Chocolates – Hearts of Love

Over the years, I’ve become a much more discerning connoisseur of the things that I eat and I’ve become more adventurous as well! I never used to eat any spicy foods but now I love foods (like curry) that do have a heat to them. I must admit that I’m still afraid of hot peppers (how can peppers that look so innocent produce so much heat?) but I think it is time to face my fears!

I watch a lot of programs on the Food Network and I’ve seen a lot of references to the combination of sweet and savory items, so I was interested in trying Cowgirl Chocolates! Cowgirl Chocolate has an interesting story – the company came into existence in 1995 when Marilyn Lysohin decided to experiment with a combination of chocolate and spices. This experimentation resulted in what they call the “Cowgirl Kick” that has become synonymous with Cowgirl Chocolates. When checking out their website, I learned that they have a huge variety of products and flavours! There are a number of great Valentine’s Day gift ideas and I loved the sound of their chocolate bars (especially the MILD MILK CHOCOLATE
SARSAPARILLA and LEMONADE WHITE CHOCOLATE).

I received a box of Signature Wrap Truffles to try. I was really glad that the box included a flavour guide so I knew what I was eating before I tried it out! The box included both spicy and mild truffles in a variety of flavours as well as a spicy caramel.

I have to admit I was a little nervous about trying the spicy truffles because they are made with cayenne pepper but I decided to venture on give them a try (diet be damned – I’m challenging my palate!). Both my husband and I tried all of the varieties. Overall, we loved all of the mild truffles – they were rich and creamy with great flavours (my favourite was the Ivory Orange and my husband lived the Raspberry Lemon). While we also enjoyed the spicy truffles, I must admit that I enjoyed some more than others. I found that I really liked the Raspberry Dark Chocolate and the Hazelnut Milk Chocolate because I found that the sweetness of the Raspberry and the nuttiness of the Hazelnut provided a great balance with the cayenne pepper. I must admit that I didn’t enjoy the Double Dark Chocolate or the Cappuchino quite as much – I found that both were lacking the sweetness to balance with the cayenne. I think, however, that it truly is a matter of personal taste. Considering I don’t like strong peppery flavours, the fact that I did enjoy the spicy truffles is a testament to how good Cowgirl Chocolates truly are!

If you have someone in your life that enjoys high quality chocolate products, Cowgirl Chocolates is an excellent choice!
