Sugar High

So this cool chocolate company in New Orleans, Sucre, wrote and offered to send me a box of their specialties. I don’t do many product reviews because, you know, crazy schedule, but also, chocolates. I caved in and said, yes please.


Mayberry writes more about them at the Full Mommy, and here are my thoughts: The Sugar and Spice Holiday Collection pretty much rocks. Somehow, they made Candy Cane, Gingerbread, and Eggnog into a sophisticated, smooth truffle.

Sucre also sent a milk chocolate bar enhanced with pistachio and candied rose petals, which I took to work. Everyone gave positive comments, with the exception of one woman, who afterwards said that she doesn’t actually like chocolate, so I didn’t worry about that too much. The rose petals were sort of cool, but the chocolate itself wasn’t as spectacular as the truffle collection.

Anyway, if you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, I’d recommend the truffles. They didn’t last long at our house!

Disclaimer: I received a box of truffles and a chocolate bar free from Sucre to sample.
