    The postman also participated in the review – he/she tested the chocolates for durability!

    I’m glad you shared these little sweets (even if it was a long time coming). They just so lovely. This gives me some fun ideas for upcoming party favours.

  3. ChopinandMysaucepan

    White chocolate is my fave and I would love to try the mushroom with its intricate and delicious looking praline and nougatine.

  4. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Wait, so, is this review actually coming 10 months after you got the chocolates? I mean, no way would any chocolate blogger do that…erm…maybe…ha…

    Cluizel makes a similar mushroom-shaped chocolate that is nice.

  5. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Now I’m dying to try something, anything, with wattleseed in it.

  6. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    Love the mushroom truffle! I got to have truffles in Italy that had actual mushroom truffles in them. It was divine. 🙂

  7. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Mmmm…sweets are the best thing to find in the mailbox, even if squished. The mushroom one sounds so yummy!

  8. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    awww these are too adorable! Even the smooshed ones 😉

    If I ever gain a ton of weight, I have a sinking feeling that my nickname will become “Wattleseed.” No, strike that, I’d be down with having that as my nickname, STAT!

    Super sad broken sad smooshy sad truffles! At least there were redeeming taste qualities:) The mushroom’s a cutie, as is the smooshy. I’m gonna pick up Psychic Cat and give her a big smooshy, STAT!

  10. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh no darling! I gasped when I saw that pic of the squished chocolates! But so glad that you got to try them anyway. Clearly I need to hand deliver you chocolates! 😛

  11. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    the mushroom truffle looks so delicious! (and cute) Oh man, if there’s one deserving person of winning truffles, it’s you Hannah! xD

  12. Rach

    Mmm those look delicious!

  13. Leah

    The little mushroom truffle looks too cute to eat!

  14. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    Miniature make me oh-so-happy. Oh and love the fact one was called Smooshy. I was going to make a Finding Nemo joke but then realized that was “Squishy”

  15. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh wow. Wow oh wow. I was going to like Smooshy best but then I switched to Pepe (although if it was actually called Smooshy, it might still have won). I also love that you sprinkled the crushed bits on your breakfast 🙂

  16. Katy

    That mushroom is just adorable! And I love hearing about different and unusual truffle flavours… wattleseed ganache? Sounds very tasty!

  17. Lou

    mmm I would like the butterscotch one, and the mushroom best I think. Could never quite get into the peppermint+ chocolate thing… I always feel like I am eating toothpaste. Question: what is the first chocolate you go for out of a box of Cadbury Roses Chocolates? What is the one that is always left at the end of your box?

  18. Kath Lockett

    They may be a trifle ‘travel worn’ but they still look and sound utterly delicious. I enjoyed a limited edition Lindt block with chestnut ‘vermicelli’ on the weekend…..

  19. Fiona

    Mangaled is okay so long as they’re still NOMMY

  20. Hotly Spiced

    My mother used to tell me that a broken treat tastes just the same as one that is intact. I would always be disappointed to be given the smashed up treat and look enviously at those who were handed the perfect treat but it is true, there is not difference to the taste.

  21. leaf (the indolent cook)

    The Acacia and Mushroom ones look adorable. Do want!

  22. Margaret

    I’m amazed you remember them well enough to review them! Or perhaps you take very thorough notes. 🙂
    That would be a happy way to start the day: chocolate sprinkled on your breakfast!

    1. Margaret

      And I can’t stop laughing over your comment that the postman may have sat on your parcel. You are sick!!! 😉

  23. Winston

    The mushroom truffles look SO cute hahaha! Why haven’t I seen it anywhere before, it’s genius! I really liked how the flavours are split right down the middle. I wonder how they made this. So creative of them

  24. hungryandfrozen

    Oh no, sat-upon truffles! Am glad that being dented did nothing to change how delicious they taste. Their beautiful shapes are intriguing and daring, a credit to their makers!

    And broken truffles sprinkled over oatmeal – how fantastically and aspirationally hedonistic!

  25. Richa@HobbyandMore

    i want to eat the screen right about now..!:) the truffle sprinkles is a fun idea!.. love that raspberry filling!

  26. whisperinggums

    One of the best things about truffles is how pretty they look. Almost too good to eat really.

  27. Ashley

    Yummm, I love how you’ve cross-sectioned the truffles for us, so much chocolate food porn going on here! I love the cup cake truffle in particular, what a fun and adorable shape!

  28. JohannaGGG

    ooh I want a taste of that butterscotch one – but they all look very pretty even after the rigours of Australia Post

  29. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Well you know when a chocolate gets smooshed all the calories fall out. They look beautiful. S is currently obsessed with marshmallow (he added them to pancakes the other day) and would adore that one, but the pepi is the one that grabbed my interest.

  30. Heidi

    Geeeee how cute is that mushroom truffle?!! Far too cute to handle. How sweet of Lorraine 🙂
    Heidi xo

  31. penny aka jeroxie

    The mushroom truffle seem to be so popular. it is really cute. at least mr postman not eaten any!

  32. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Oh my goooosh, these look amazing! That mushroom truffle? So cute!

  33. msihua

    Squished squashed chocolates?? OH NO!!!! Sigh.. if only I got hand delivered chocolates too (not squashed) 😛

  34. Errign

    Mangled chocolate is a-okay by me – those look so pretty (and delicious)!

  35. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Broken truffles are still wonderful truffles! I want the smooshy one…

  36. Caitlin @ Vegetarian in the City

    oh wow, now i need chocolate. i’m jealous!!

  37. Vien @ We Dare Food

    Broken or not they still look fabulous! 🙂 Looks like you had lots of fun enjoying each of them!!

    I have actually left this (and several other of your posts) unread in my Reader so that I could comment on it. Here’s what I’ve wanted to say for a couple of weeks now:

    That mushroom truffle excites my heart, too! One Christmas I received a box of mocha mushrooms from Bissinger Chocolates in St. Louis (World Champs, hooray!)(actually, they were from my mom. But you know what I mean). They looked very much like yours, with a dusting of cocoa on top and a filling of creamy mocha mousse. They were delicious. Much to my family’s disappointment, the next year they were discontinued, and I haven’t seen anything like them since, until now. So Thank you! I’m so glad to know they still exist, somewhere in the world, and the addition of praline can only make them more awesome, I’m sure.
