Island Angel Chocolates. Today, one month later, we'll finish that review of the entire sample, all 24 flavors, they sent our way with the bottom 12 varieties on the bottom of the box they sent. As with the first review these will not necessarily be covered in the order you see in the box so take a look at each photo that will accompany every two truffles your Chocolate Priestess describes in all five senses. First though, these are the same size as the top layer of truffles was, approximately 0.75 inches on the bottom but rising 1.25 inches tall for a decent mouthful for chocolate and other flavors. We'll start with the white chocolates, go to the milk chocolates then end with the dark varieties today.
Island Angel Chocolates. We'll start with the "Orange of the Night" which has sort of mango colored drizzle on the top and the "Amore Amaretto" which has white drizzle on it. "Orange of the Night" has a dark chocolate scent, no real hint of citrus even. The thick shell snaps fairly loudly and then crunches as I take a bite. Inside is a dark, bitter semi-solid center that melts into an intense orange that folds back into the chocolate again. Wonderful is the only word I can use to describe this as I enjoy it. "Amore Amaretto" has an almond scent and a dark chocolate scent before I bite through the thick shell with a snap. Inside is a very dark and bitter semi-solid center that starts off with the almond liquor flavor but quickly turns entirely dark cocoa in nature.
If the two dozen flavors from Island Angel Chocolates sound great to you, and I hope they do read half as wonderful as they tasted to me, you need to go check them out this Sacrament worthy treats. If you are near Langley, WA, check them out in person and linger over their varieties in store but even if you aren't, these shipped very well and kept very well even though this review was pre-written a good month or two before this Saturday Sacrament was posted. These will last you a while and be a delightful mouthful for as many days as you are willing to practice Moderation.
Island Angel is also making a change to a new store name and line of products and you can check them out at this Facebook link. Their new website should be Sweet Mona's starting in July.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
