Sweet Mona's in the form of their "I only have eyes for you" Truffles. This 7.5oz box came to your Chocolate Priestess and I was excited to open it but first I wanted to think about the other "eyeballs" I'd seen all ready in the store for this holiday. Without exception, so far, the "eyeballs" I'd seen were really balls of chocolate or worse waxy pseudo-chocolate wrapped in something that looked like a blood shot eyeball. Of course for Halloween parties you've probably heard you can peel grapes and people close there eyes. I was hoping what I'd see in the box would be better than either of these options.
These are almost perfectly round with a 0.75 inch diameter. We ate the light, seaform green eyeballs first. They have a very creamy scent from the white chocolate layer surrounding all by the iris which is dyed white chocolate and appears to be set into the white with a dab of darker chocolate for the pupil. The blood-shot effect is more of a pink color and is raised off the surface making it extra creepy to hold in your hand and feel with your eyes closed -- something I highly recommend you have a friend do before letting him or her open their eyes.
Looking for higher quality but creepy treats for your Halloween? I have to say that these impressed us almost as much as previous samples from the same chocolatier. The eyeball truffles deserve a stamp of approval for a Halloween specific Sacrament.
