This led to my pretense, today, that the treat is yours. After all, reading about a box filled with vegan (predominately raw) heavenliness is as wonderful as tasting a box filled with vegan (predominately raw) heavenliness, right? Right.
I think my nose just grew.
Throughout 2012, Lisa and Nicole delighted the tastebuds of many lucky Torontonians by way of their Vegan Treat of the Month Club, which entitled all who signed up to six different raw vegan desserts for only $10 every month. During my time staying with the incomparably wonderful Lisa last year, I helped make (and taste) a number of these treats, and boy. Goo-ood-oh.
Flash forward to February this year when, following my concussion, Lisa came to visit with a bright red Valentine’s Day Vegan Gift Box in her hand. It was the sweetest thing. So sweet, in fact, that I’ve had to break the review into two parts…
I’ve waxed lyrical about my love of lavender in sweet treats before, and this jumbo-sized vegan dark chocolate cup with a lavender filling only bolstered my affection.
Except when they’re these truffles. Oh. My. Giddy. Heart.
That right there, my friends, is a raw vegan dark chocolate truffle filled with a toasted caramel ganache. It tasted like the richest, silkiest, deepest ganache crossed with brownie batter, and it melted on the tongue in the same way a cloud made of ganache would melt on the tongue. Insane.
Lingering love. That sounds about correct for a Valentine’s Day-themed collection of decadently swoon-worthy vegan chocolates, right? Right.
And that time, my nose stayed just the same length.
