Cowgirl Chocolates Review and Giveaway

Hello, my name is Heather and I am a chocoholic. (Hello Heather.) Yes, admitting you have a problem is the first step. I love chocolate. When I was pregnant with Max, I never had any cravings until the last couple of months. And then I had to have a Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate and a package of Plain M&Ms Every. Single. Day. It's a wonder I didn't gain 100 pounds! I'm not particularly picky with my chocolate (not a fan of white chocolate, though) and I always like to try new kinds. And then I was introduced to Cowgirl Chocolates...
Cowgirl Chocolates are "sweet and spicy gourmet chocolates for adventurous chocolate lovers." Well, you have my attention now! Cowgirl Chocolates brought chocolate to a whole new level, by mixing high quality chocolates with spices, like Cayenne pepper. You can find their famous mild and spicy truffles, candy bars, caramels, brittles, cocoa, and more.
Cowgirl Chocolates sent me a package of their mild and spicy truffles. I think the packaging is just adorable. These (and all their products) are perfectly presented for gift giving. (Valentine's Day is coming up, remember? And these are definitely a macho-er [is that a word?] version of the traditional V-day candy.) Anyway, here is a list of truffle flavors, in my order of preference:
  • Milk Chocolate (mild)
  • Ivory Orange (mild)
  • Double Dark Chocolate (mild)
  • Cappuccino (spicy)
  • Double Dark Chocolate (spicy)
  • Hazelnut Milk Chocolate (spicy)
  • Raspberry Dark Chocolate (spicy)
  • Raspberry Lemon (milk)
  • Habanero Caramel (spicy)

Now, I was a little scared, at first, that the truffles would be too spicy for me. But, they were actually very, very good! I could taste a hint of "something" that made the chocolate more interesting than a basic chocolate, but I didn't need a glass of water on hand. Well, except for the Habanero Caramel. THAT was spicy! And I only ate 1/4 of the piece! I am so happy I discovered Cowgirl Chocolates! Definitely a must-try if you love chocolate!
