Vosges Haut-Chocolat

While not a huge fan of chocolate, I do get an occasional craving for the sweet. And when that hits me, I know it’s time for a trip to Vosges Haut-Chocolat. Vosges is one of my favorite indulgences and every once in a while, I visit the beautiful shop for a few chocolaty delights. 

This week, I treated myself to the classic Naga truffle and the newer addition, Red Fire. My go-to, Naga, is a creamy and flavorful truffle boasting sweet Indian curry powder + coconut + milk chocolate. The Red Fire is a little more intense (though not too hot) and is made of Mexican ancho & chipotle chillies + Ceylon cinnamon + dark chocolate. I also picked up the Barcelona Exotic Candy Bar which is a combination of hickory smoked almonds + fleur de sel sea salt + deep milk chocolate. All are a flavor adventure and each bite has the ability to temporarily transport you to chocolate heaven. 

Not only do the chocolates amuse your taste buds, the packaging is pristine and gorgeous, adding to the overall chocolate experience.
