November 30th, 2010Cowgirl Chocolates- Review
Cowgirl Chocolates was founded in 1997 by Marilyn Lysohir who combined her love for art and chocolate to create a one-of-a-kind product.
Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 19 product awards and 2 packaging awards and been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and on CNBC “On the Money”.
Cowgirl Chocolates kindly sent us a sampler pack to try out. Now Cowgirl Chocolates are not your typical chocolate. Cowgirl Chocolates are both sweet and spicy. When you first put one in your mouth, it will taste like other chocolate, sweet and smooth. After a second or two, you’ll taste the cayenne pepper.
All nine pieces came in a red cardboard box tied with black ribbon and adorned with a silver cowboy hat charm.
I did not tell my husband that some of the truffles were spicy. He knew right off the bat the “Hazelnut Milk Chocolate” one he tried was. He commented that the truffle had a real kick to it.
I gave my daughter the Habanero Caramel, and did not tell her what was it. She started to chew it and then spit out commenting on how “hot” it was. I couldn’t stop laughing. In her early teen years I use to use Cayenne pepper to get her to stop swearing.
Each truffle is identifiable by its wrapper, and they enclose an explanatory card.
Gold-Double Dark Chocolate
Dark Blue-Hazelnut Milk Chocolate
Fuschia Red-Raspberry Lemon
If you like chocolate and spicy food, then buy yourself a box of Cowgirl Chocolates at cowgirlchocolates.com.
To please those of us who prefer chocolate without spice, Marilyn of Cowgirl Chocolates makes “mild-mannered” milk chocolate and dark chocolate truffles.
My only negative part of the review is that the box wasn’t big enough. Ok it was, but I shared and now I want more.
Check out Cowgirl Chocolates today for their selection of chocolate bars, truffles, and cocoa.
A special thank you to Marilyn for the sample. Yee-Haw!
