Truffettes de France

For all the TdF lovers out there, here’s one good news I got thru SMS.  Its Glorietta outlet joins the 3-day midnight sale starting tomorrow, September 11.  You can buy two (2) 500g packs of the Original variant at Php999 only.   

Now, we can again indulge with less guilt…  How’s that?





Big Things Come in Small Packages

10 02 2009

Last Friday, I got the small package (smaller than a shoebox) that my brother sent me thru a friend. Guess what it was. Right! Every handcarried package will not be complete without Truffettes de France and some food supplements.  Now, I got a 1-kg. box of TdF in addition to my 500-gm pack that has been sitting in the fridge for a month now.  I didn’t want to open the existing pack until I got another.  I just ignored the notice I received from Glorietta 4 outlet about the ongoing promo coz my brother had already informed me earlier that he’s sending a pack soon. 

Truffettes de France

I was expecting they melted and turned runny while in transit like the last time but thanks to Weng co’z only the cocoa dusts did melt.  They were stuck together, though, so I had to use a fork or knife to separate them.  I still enjoy the truffles even without the cocoa dusts.  I’m telling you guys, if you’re on a diet, don’t dare taste this yummy delights co’z you will only get into trouble, unless you have enough self-control hahaha….





Truffettes de France Promo

29 01 2009

Good news to all TdF lovers.  I just got a text message from TdF Glorietta 4 outlet informing me of the latest promo.  So when you purchase 2 packs of 250g, you will get 1 free pack.  Available in Cappuccino, Original with cocoa beans or Champagne.

Go grab them now while supply lasts….  Remember though that a serving of the original variant or 5 truffles is equivalent to 245 calories (171 calories from fat), 19g of fat (15g saturated), 18g of carbohydrates (18g sugar), 26mg of sodium, and 2g of protein.





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.

 





I gotta taste this Royce’ chocolate

During my browsing, I chanced upon a few posts that made mention of this another outstanding foodie find which originated from Hokkaido, Japan.  One wrote that it is called the Rolls Royce of chocolates.  I wish I had read them first before I went to Hongkong last year and Singapore last October.  The good thing is… it’s now locally available according to one blog writer.  Royce’ flagship store, carrying almost the complete line of products including the Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip, located at the 3/F Power Plant Mall in Rockwell opened last December 6 . 

I was in Rockwell last week, on the same floor, with some colleagues for my birthday treat.  Had I known about Royce’ earlier, I would have gotten myself these little blocks of  Nama choco delights. 

 Will it replace my Truffettes de France? 

 Can hardly wait.  I’m coming there soon!





Badminton and Truffles?

23 11 2008

Since I don’t frequent Mega Mall, I decided to go there two (2) hours earlier than the scheduled “Mega Sizzle” of Classique Herbs.  I wanted to check out some new stores, etc.   Obviously, that was so short a time to do that but I knew that I’ll still be able to bring home something.  True enough…

An ongoing sports-related event/exhibit sponsored by Chris Sports at the ground floor of Building A caught my attention.  Sports equipment, gadgets, etc. were on display.  I was almost at the end of the display area when I saw badminton racquets with discount tags.  You guessed it… I got myself a Prince Os White (as suggested by the sales attendant who happens to be a badminton enthusiast, too) at half the price.  I don’t know anything about racquets but I’m quite sure that I will not go wrong with Prince.  I was told that Prince creates and develops new designs every six months.  How true?

Aside from the black/gray racquet bag and stringing service, there were no other freebies.  So I paid for the string and grips.  But the defective grips made me wait for soooo long.  They didn’t have other Prince grips so the sales attendant requested me to join her to their outlet (about 5-min. walk from the exhibit area) to choose another brand.   So all their Prince grips stocks were defective.  I was so disappointed.  How can that be?  Was it because they are China-made?  I was cursing China for that.  Now, we’re not sure of the quality of these branded stuff co’z they are made in China.  I just hope that my brand new, quite expensive racquet will “live” up to my expectations.

The “Mega Sizzle” concluded later than expected so I was worried co’z my plan earlier was to get the truffles that day while still on promo.  But I needed to return to Chris Sports for my racquet.  Since I availed of the free stringing service, I was advised to return and claim it after a while.  Rushing it will affect the quality of the stringing.

After I got my racquet, I wondered if I can still make it to Glorietta.  Then I thought, since Shangrila Mall is just in the vicinity, I (with a friend) decided to drop by Truffettes de France’s outlet there.  And I was lucky enough co’z just after I got off the escalator, at my right, there stood a few steps away Truffettes.  I looked right away for that similar sign of the promo sale. Yes!  Still!  “Two 500-gm, please.”  Then, I left with all smiles…





Love at First Bite with Truffettes de France III

21 11 2008

It’s Friday but I couldn’t afford to drop by Glorietta to purchase the truffles co’z I got some food stuff and a few other items from our company’s tiangge (bazaar).   My shopping bag was already heavy and full.   No more space for the truffles.   Even if there was, I will not take the risk.   I wanted Truffettes to reach our fridge “safe and sound”.  I still have tomorrow anyway.   I didn’t hear from the storekeeper so I can assume that the promo stocks are still available.   I hope…
