Review: Booja Booja 'chilled selection'

Booja Booja - Chilled Selection - Chocolate Truffles

New sophisticated mini boxes of truffles in bright and vibrant colours that ditch the old fashioned styling of the traditional lines. These chocolates are sold chilled - that is you'll find them in the dessert chiller at Waitrose or in your local wholefood shop. The fridge treatment is necessary because of the new 'delicate' flavours:

There are eight boxes available, but your best bet is to buy some of the 'selection boxes' that contain three types of truffle in each. We went for Selection No. 1, Selection No. 2, and a box of Almond & Sea Salt Caramel. You get six chocolate truffles in each box.

The flavours we tried are some familiar, and some decidedly new: Fine de Champagne, Midnight Espresso, Kalamon Olive, Hazelnut, Rhubarb & Vanilla and Almond & Sea Salt Caramel. 

They're all fantastic, but we absolutely love the Olive truffles, and also the Rhubarb & Vanilla ones. You won't believe olives and chocolate mix until you've tried one of those, but they actually taste fruity and delicious.

One great thing about these new boxes is the affordability. With an RRP of £3.99 in the UK (which is exactly what we paid at an independent shop) they're so much more of an impulse purchase than the larger boxes. And once people taste these, they'll never say dairy-free chocolate is second class again!

Stocking Fillers

You've just about got time to track these down and give a box or two as a Christmas stocking filler to someone you love. As long as you keep your stockings in the fridge that is...

The Good: The very best vegan truffles
The Not-so-Good: The danger of fridge snacking...
