Bering’s Mousse Truffle and Espresso Truffle

So I was out shopping for hardware and components for a project I’m working on, and entered a store called Bering’s. I guess I didn’t pay much attention to the tagline that said “Hardware & Gifts” because I was completely shocked when I entered and the first thing I saw was a chocolate counter (and not drawers of screws and bolts). So, in addition to my tubing and metal rods, I had to buy some chocolates while I was there.

The first one I got was a Mousse Truffle. I was a little disappointed in it. The milk chocolate shell was very smooth, but the mousse filling was entirely too sugary and vanilla flavored. I was hoping for a denser, rich flavor.

The Espresso Truffle was a little better, mostly because it had a dark chocolate shell. The filling was still a little on the sweet side, though the bitterness of the espresso (and the coffee bean on top) balanced it out.
