Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Vegan Tea Truffles

The lovely people at Vegan World Radio suggested that we make some great Vegan Tea Truffles. They were drooling over the Tea Set Truffles and wanted one for themselves. So, on their suggestion, I decided to make a combination of Tea and Fruit.

Q: What's better than Tea and Fruit?
A: Tea and Fruit wrapped in chocolate!

It's a great time to be vegan. Now, we have Vegan Tea and Fruit Truffles. What are the combinations?

For black tea, we have Earl Grey and Seville Oranges. For oolong tea, we have Ti Quan Yin and Lemon. For green tea, we have Genmaicha and Chestnut with Apples. OK. So, it's Tea and Fruit with nuts. ;-) You get the idea. The Chestnut is great. It's nice with apples, and as Nancy, my assistant says, it's even better with chocolate. These are all going to be hand or forked dipped and then decorated.

Pictures coming. It's isn't on the website yet but if you want to order them, please call us. It'll be the same price as the other vegan truffles. And once again, no animal products or by-products, e.g., milk and honey, used in these chocolates. The 72% chocolate is organic and fair trade and is sweetened with evaporated cane juice., all organic. The fruits are organic, too. We also use all natural coconut water and coconut fat. Yum. These taste just fantastic and are good for you, too. And for truffles, they have a long shelf life, about 6 months to a year. Why? No milk or cream or butter. The shelf life of chocolate is about 1 year and the shelf life of coconut oil is 1 1/2 years.

Funny, I was reading this great article about taking a tour of Parisian Chocolate Shops, and it struck me, again, that in Paris or Vienna, chocolate cake is always included in a chocolate shop there and only rarely here.

I sent out emails a couple of times, did you get any of those?
