La Cure Gourmande Chocolate Truffles Box

Parisian chocolate truffles. Need I say more? These treasures come from Paris’ La Cure Gourmande shop. With shops scattered through Europe, La Cure Gourmande confections can’t be purchased in the States, so you’ll have to pick them up in person or hope that you’re the lucky recipient of a gift.

From the instant you see the old-fashioned truffle box you’ll get excited. As you pull off the decorative golden ribbon and lift the box lid, you’ll be greeted by the sweetest, delicate scent of French chocolate. And you’ll notice a little flavor booklet provided in the box so you can take delight in identifying the marriage of flavors you’re about to consume.

Once you’ve come this far, you’re ready to dive into the sampling. I sampled an assortment box of 16, all different flavors. The box included rich milk and dark chocolates, flavored with subtle traces of almond, hazelnut, cherry, raspberry, coffee and sesame, to name a few. From the pleasant aroma as you remove each truffle to the creaminess of the first bite as your mouth gets coated in chocolate, your taste buds absorb every flavor.

Though the sugary taste isn’t overly powerful, the explosion of flavors is rich. So it’s best to eat just one or a couple at a time. These aren’t the type of candies you will want to mindlessly just pop in your mouth at the movies. Like most truffles, to truly enjoy them, you must appreciate each one and each flavor that makes it up.

    Why are they being reviewed if they can’t be picked up in the states/on this site?

    Mary, you’re such a tease. Since these “treasures” are unavailable in this country, what would you recommend as the next best truffle we could buy from the Candy Addict website?

    I reviewed these in case you find yourself in Europe or you happen to have a generous friend, relative or significant other going…someone who will bring you some. :) I am actually a fan of Lindt Lindor Truffles. And I would suggest trying a few different brands to see what you like.
