French Kiss Truffle Gifts From GourmetStation
Posted: April 11, 2008
My first experience with truffles was at a fancy department store when I was much younger. I remember passing the candy counter filled with bite-sized morsels that were as elegant as an Imperial Faberge Easter egg. I also remember thinking the truffles were a bit pricey compared to the size….a couple of good bites at best. But after I enjoyed one, well, I haven’t been the same since. The flavor intensity was like nothing I had ever tasted.
A few months ago GourmetStation was contacted by French Kiss Desserts. The people at French Kiss saw a possible marriage between their line up of exquisite truffles and GourmetStation dinner gifts. After sampling their truffles not only did GourmetStation agree about the marriage, but saw the potential to sell French Kiss truffles on the GourmetStation website. And so the story goes.
Now you can buy 3 & 4 course dinner gifts, soup gifts, dessert gifts AND truffle gifts from GourmetStation. My suggestion? Without hesitation the sampler packet. Each truffle gift contains between 60 and 66 truffles and with the sampler packet your gift recipient (or you if you treat yourself) will receive six varieties. Razz Mojito – raspberry & mint, Tropical Splash – coconut & lime, Beurre de Noisette – hazelnut, Peanut Eclipse – creamy peanut butter, Cherry Caramel – cherry caramel, Dulce De Leche – Argentinean Dulce de Leche.
There are several different methods of making truffles – American, European & Swiss. Fred Quenzer at French Kiss tells us they have their own special process with each truffle being hand dipped and made from only natural ingredients - no preservatives. I could write all day about this new dessert gift, but the best way for you to get my message is to try a sampler packet for yourself. And don’t forget to share!
