Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory – Semisweet Truffle

I walked by the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory shop at the Salt Lake City International Airport, and therefore couldn’t resist peering in the glass display case at the rows of candies. I chose one labeled Semisweet Truffle, because after my Bering’s experience, anything milk chocolate would probably be too sweet.

To taste the truffle, which was coated in a hard chocolate shell, I cut it in half and tasted the shell and the filling separately, and then together.

The shell wasn’t a very dark chocolate, as it was very soft and melted easily, but it did have a warm, woodsy taste. It was semisweet, but much better than say, nestle semisweet chocolate chips. I would guess that it didn’t have any artificial vanilla.

The chocolate filling was smooth and creamy and had a subtle fruity flavor, like cherry.

The flavors and textures marry nicely together, the slight bitterness of the shell balances the sweeter creamy filling.
