Missionary Chocolates review and giveaway CLOSED


As you may recall if you've been reading my blog for very long, I gave up sweets completely for the season of Lent. It wasn't until just after Lent that I realized that despite not depriving myself of anything else at all, I DID in fact seem to have some much looser pants. This encouraged me to stick with my severly reduced intake of sweets and soda.

When the wonderful people for Missionary Chocolates essentially darned me to eat more than one of their truffles even if I wanted to, I was pretty skeptical. I mean, I can put away a BOX of Fanny Mae candy without issue. But they were not wrong when they made this claim. First, their truffles aren't your typical little tiny chocolates. This is a real chocolate lovers truffle. Add to the simple size the unique ingredients which simple make you feel like you've gotten more and you'd truly have to be out to do yourself in to down more than one.

Then of course you're left with the sad thought of not getting to enjoy all the different flavors they offer. Unless of course you are able to hide your box and not share with your family. Personally, I was happy with my approach to taste testing. I gave each of the kids their own truffle and simply stole a bite from each. Three small bites was honestly enough for me. And one truffle (minus my little bite) was even enough for my chocolate addicted 2 year old to wander away happy and not begging for 'moe.'

I also have to confess that many hours later, I was tempted back to the box. It was calling my name, I tell ya. So while the rest of my family slept, I figured I could indulge in just one truffle. And wouldn't you know it but I picked the Spicy Cinnamon Chipotle. I was NOT prepared for that. Chocolate with a SERIOUS spicy kick. If you're looking for something different give it a try.  But I'm not kidding when I tell you that thing took my breath away. I drank a full glass of water and still couldn't get the heat out of my mouth.

My personal favorite is the Peppermint Perfection as I'm a BIG mint fan.  But they were all ('cept that Chipotle one) delicious to me. 



The lovely people from Missionary Chocolates has offered 9pc box and a 4pc box - assorted
bestselling flavor combinations for one of my lucky readers.
