My Cherie Amour

29 03 2009

Just opened this afternoon my M&S Cherry Liqueurs – dark chocolates with a whole cherry and brandy center.  I finished two pieces and I would say that this is a great-tasting chocolate, with the right bitterness complementing the brandy-soaked cherry.  I would say also that this is the first time that I allowed my chocolate to stand at room temperature for a few minutes before finally consuming it and I’m telling you, I didn’t realize that it will be that good – a lot more pleasurable to enjoy the silky smooth confection melting in your mouth.  Superb indeed!

Dec. 31- Last Day of Truffettes de France Promo

30 12 2008

I got a text this morning from Truffettes de France Glorietta 4 outlet informing me that the last day of its “Buy 2 500-gm packs for Php999” will be tomorrow, Dec. 31.

I texted back to say that this info should have been relayed to customers a little earlier.  I really want to purchase 2 more boxes coz my friend from Canada is not coming to Manila until next year so that means no truffles from my brother. 😦  But, I had to do some errands and had an appointment for a facial treatment.   I can’t afford to go to Makati at this time.  Besides, the traffic situation is worse.

I don’t know how long my remaning 1 1/3 boxes will last co’z I have other brands to indulge in in-between like Ritter Sport Dark Whole Hazelnuts, Hershey’s & More Creme Filling and Toblerone’s Dark Minis.  Yesterday, I got myself a Ferrero, Snickers Dark and a box of Marks and Spencer Cherry Liqueurs – dark chocolate with a whole cherry and brandy center.  Well, those who know that I love dark chocolates also know that I love chocolates with liquor.  No! I don’t drink… I just love the taste of liquor in my chocolate or cake, the bitter, the better. 

And this afternoon, I was looking at some variants of Lindt chocolates.  I wonder if the Lindor Truffles are locally available coz I also love Lindor.  I was thinking – after I had a taste of Royce’, I’ll purchase Lindt’s 70% Excellence Thins then.  Meantime, I got Meiji’s Chocolate Macadamia today as an addition.
