Candy Review: Target Choxie Artisan Truffle Tiles

Choxie Artisan Truffles

I haven’t posted a review here for a while, but it’s not because I haven’t been eating candy. It’s because I made the mistake of saying that I would review these Target chocolates, and I have been unable to face up to it. It’s just too depressing.

I have prided myself on always being able to get something to write out of a candy – if it’s terrible, at least finding something funny to say about it. But there’s nothing funny about how bad these are.

It’s just totally depressing that Target thinks they can fool us into thinking that these are ‘artisan truffles’ just because they have fashionable flavor names and are visually a poor imitation of the most high-end sort of chocolate, and that it doesn’t matter that as something to actually eat, they’re totally awful.

Choxie Recalled Because of Peanuts

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Chocolate Candy


Yep, two Choxie posts in one week. Consider this a Public Service Announcement:

Ross Acquisition Co., manufacturer of the Choxie brand candies sold at Target stores nationwide, is voluntarily recalling its double dark truffles candy because of the presence of unlisted peanuts or peanut butter. As a precautionary measure, the company is also recalling Choxie brand milk chocolate truffles, milk chocolate peanut butter balls and milk chocolate caramel balls, even though these items do not contain any unlisted allergens.

People with a peanut allergy who consume the contaminated product run the risk of a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction.

I, nor any member of my family is allergic to peanuts, but it’s scary to think what could happen if someone allergic to peanuts ingests some.

Target FINALLY has Choxie on its website

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Chocolate Candy


I’m not sure why it took them so long (about 5 months since the launch last October), but Target finally has Choxie on their website and that page will be returned if you search for Choxie. I wrote about the mysterious absence of Choxie on Target’s website back in November. I would LOVE to know the story on why it took so long. Inept IT department? Poor planning? Troubles with their web developers? We may never know. Still nothing at (which Target owns) though.
