Being curious to sample more from Starbucks, I fed a recent obsession with Chai tea by picking these out. There were ten total truffles. The box-container they’re in is unique, and while it wouldn’t be great for a present, it suits for everyday. Like the bars.
Each truffle is wrapped in a copper-orange with a light pattern. Inside, you’re greeted by a strong chai smell, sweetened a little by the chocolate. Amazingly, it looks just like the picture on the package. It’s not all the time that that happens.
The outside milk chocolate is very tender, and though fairly thick, it gives way to white filling (where the chai is contained) quickly. The two accent each other very nicely: the strong next to the sweet. This time, I agree that milk is better, with its creaminess suiting perfectly. An intense dark chocolate added to the chai would be too much.
So if you’re partial to chai, you’ll love these. If you don’t like chai, don’t even consider them; the taste is strong. But it’s another good showing from Starbucks; sure, not the most spectacular, but still good.
