(Closed) Celebrate Mother's Day ~ Nicobella Vegan Organic Chocolate Truffles Review and Giveaway Ends 5/6

Looking for a simply incredible treat full of dark chocolate decadence, delicious organic ingredients, and high in antioxidants? You have to check out Nicobella vegan organic dark chocolates! 70% cocao is so full of antioxidants by itself, but these truffles are infused with antioxidant rich ingredients such as green tea, blueberries and pumpkin too. Using oat milk and coconut oil (which makes them vegan) instead of cream and sugar to create a creamy ganache center, these truffles are also a healthier alternative to your traditional truffle. Yay for feeling great about eating chocolate! :)

I received a box of nicobella's Truffles Assortment! What a yummy aroma I smelled before even opening the box!

There are 6 truffles in this assortment. They are Organic, 100% vegan, all natural, and contain no preservatives, trans fats, or soy. I first thought (since they're small), "I'll eat these in 2 seconds!" However, they are actually quite satisfying and I could barely finish the box myself! 

So...how yummy are they? 

WOW! This was seriously an experience for the senses! No joke! With each new little bite I took out of one truffle to really get a feel for the flavors, something new would arise. These totally played with my senses! They all have a base of smooth rich cocoa chocolate and then have undertones and hints of the added flavor. Trying to describe each flavor was such a challenge. With milk in hand to get a fresh palate with each flavor, here is what I found.....

Blueberry Almond: Nice sweet blueberry chocolate flavor. It tasted like a chocolate covered blueberry! The only almond flavor/nut I found were a couple small pieces on top. There may have been tiny almond pieces in this truffle, but I didn't find any.

Ginger Green Tea: I was skeptical at first before I tried this one. Have I really never actually HAD green tea? Or it was just so long ago I don't remember? Anyway, this has a lightly spicy green tea flavor but it's pretty tame and not overwhelming. I could still taste it a couple minutes later!

Pumpkin Chai: This one probably had the most calm flavor of them all. I liked it though! With very subtle hints of pumpkin, and a lighter chocolate flavor than the rest, this reminded me of Fall and comfort foods!

Pure Cocoa Bliss: Within the bite, first I tasted just a very rich dark, DARK cocoa flavor, then it would turn into a licorice taste, then back to cocoa. This happened with each little bite I took! It was so fascinating to taste the changes this one had.

Walnut Flaxseed Crunch: Great flavor, very nutty (almost a peanut flavor), and a little salty. I'd like a whole candy bar of this one please!!

Sunflower Banana Butter: Very salty, and had a rich sunflower undertone, but I couldn't taste any banana? Still great, and the sunflower aroma was very strong and delicious.

I realized the following AFTER I tried all the flavors....The intensity of flavors are grouped so they get more intense as you go in the right order! I started sampling from the Sunflower Banana Butter and made my way up this list but I only ate about half of each truffle the first time! So, I absolutely HAD to experience the truffles in the right order, so I gladly finished the rest of the box.

It was really helpful to have each flavor written out on the box in the order I received them. AND each one had some little topping that was similar to its  flavor in case you mixed them up! They all seriously looked liked the photos online too.

Price: The Truffles Assortment is $13.50 and includes 6 truffles.

The Verdict: The amazingly tasty experience you get with these truffles is indescribable. All organic ingredients is awesome as well. Each truffle had a unique flavor unlike anything I've tasted before! At $13.50, the price is honestly high. However, it's an experience that I think is totally worth it!
