Charbonnel et Walker White Chocolate Strawberry Truffles

After the Charbonnel et Walker English Fruit Crèmes, I’m trying some more of their forthcoming collection in the form of some White Chocolate Strawberry Truffles. I know I shouldn’t say it, but when I first got them out of the packaging they reminded me of the pretty terrible Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Truffles I reviewed this Easter. Thankfully these were a lot better, and this summer you’ll be able to buy a box of 12 of these for £12 online and from their various stores and concessions.

I must admit I do really like Charbonnel et Walker as I’m a sucker for a good truffle and I love fruity flavoured chocolates. But these truffles are made from white chocolate and I normally don’t get on well with white chocolate. But these strawberry truffles are very nice indeed.

There may not be a huge amount of depth or character. But they lack in that department, they more than make up in light, playful fun. What comes to mind when I enjoy is the scene from Pretty Women – no not that one! – the one where they’re playing Polo as these truffles are that sort of sophisticated distraction from the usual grind. They may not have a wow factor that will knock your socks off, but they’ll give your feet a good tickle.

The aroma is mild, with a slight hint of the natural strawberry flavouring and the fleck of dried strawberry which has been placed on the top. The shell is fairly solid which does take a bit of pressure to break through. But on the inside your hard work is rewarded with a soft, moist centre which isn’t too sweet, but still has sufficient character to be a pleasing end to the experience.

The flavours to last a good while and you’ll probably just sit there for a while as they very slowlsy subside. And then you’ll find yourself reaching for another.

I’d say these Charbonnel et Walker White Chocolate Strawberry Truffles would be perfect for a dinner party so I suggest getting some when they out this summer.

Rating:
