One of the things I love most about the Internet is that it lets you discover the most interesting people and places that you’d never otherwise know about. And it also lets them discover you.
This week, for instance, I learned all about Mackinac Island. A 3.8 square mile Island in Lake Huron, Michigan. I also learned they have a rather excellent Fudge Shop when they contacted and asked if they could send some samples. I replied saying “Sure, but we’ll only review the ones with chocolate”…
A week later and a rather large, heavy box arrives at my door. Inside the box, two smaller boxes. One with 3 large slices of fudge (review coming soon!), and one with these 4 truffles.
As you can see, they look rather good. They’re all different but all chocolatey. And I’m not sure this picture conveys how big these are, but unless you have a very large mouth, there’s no way you’ll eat one of these in a single mouthful. However much you might want to.
These truffles are all very soft, very smooth, moist, sticky and utterly delicious. They’re like the soft centres from expensive chocolates without the chocolate shell. Instead, each one has been gently rolled in cocoa powder or coconut. Despite this, they are still quite messy, but a lot of fun to eat. I don’t think it’s possible to eat them without getting a sticky face, sticky fingers or sticky everything.
These four truffles lasted me about a day, and were all delicious. I’d be tempted to buy some more if it wasn’t for the ever increasing stockpile of chocolate in my house waiting for review. It’s a hard life.
