Happy day, Noshers!  Well, it’s a happy day for me at least – I’m sharing my thoughts on some new chocolate I recently sampled.  And hopefully happy for you – because you’ll get to read about said chocolate. Okay okay, not as satisfying as eating it but hopefully still good :).

A few weeks ago, the guys at The Lost Sense reached out to me.  Locally located (right in Brooklyn!), The Lost Sense prides itself on chocolate truffles that not only look like works of art but also are mouthwateringly delicious.  So when they asked if I’d be open to sampling some of their wares, of course I said yes.

When I received my box of truffles, the first thing I noticed was the clean, modern look of the packaging – me likey:

But what awaited inside?

I especially appreciated how each one was unique and obviously crafted with care – they were like mini works of art!  The phrase”too beautiful to eat” would apply to these truffles, but I’m not one to let a food’s beauty stop me from consuming it, so I dug right in.

The Lost Sense guys executed the more traditional flavors, such as dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee, to perfection.  But what I especially enjoyed were the more unique flavors, such as fresh homemade fig paste, calamansi caramel, wasabi, and red velvet.  They were amazing!  The flavors were intense yet not overpowering – for example, I tasted the wasabi flavor without a mind-numbing sensation (though I appreciated the subtle tingle).   I was very pleased to confirm first-hand that the flavors and tastes matched the exquisite exteriors of these truffles.

If I were to change one thing, it would be the packaging – the box was a little difficult to open (my excitement to get to the chocolate inside didn’t help, I’m sure).   However, once I did get to the scrumptious truffles inside, I was sold.  Throughout my many many years of consuming (and loving) chocolate of all types and degrees of fanciness, I must say that The Lost Sense truffles are among the more beautiful, delicious, and carefully crafted chocolates I’ve sampled.  But don’t take my word for it – you can purchase a box of four ($7) or twenty ($35) from their website, or even create your own custom box.  If you do end up trying them, don’t be shy – I’d love to hear what you think!

If you could create any flavor truffle, what would it be?

    They are so pretty! If I could create any flavor – is probably go for a coffee/pretzel/caramel combo. Ok I just drooled on my poor phone.
