Terre à Terre Salt Caramel Chocolate Truffles

Terre a Terre Salt Caramel Truffles

I know that salted caramels aren’t my favourite chocolate in the world. But seeing as their Boozy Rum Truffles were so fantastic, I thought I’d push them up the order of chocolates to review.

Terre a Terre Salt Caramel Truffles Looking At Them All

You can pick up 12 of these truffles online from the Terre à Terre site for just £6.95 which is pretty damn good value for money – especially as they look so great inside the box. They seem to be like a row of terracotta soldiers all lined up and ready for action. This is their “death by chocolate”.

Terre a Terre Salt Caramel Truffles Individual

Individually they look fantastic, rustic and decidedly more natural than the almost mathematical in proportion Gu Liquid Caramel Chocs that I expect are given birth to in a battery hen type way. These truffles from Terre à Terre are more of the free range variety.

Terre a Terre Salt Caramel Truffles And Its All Running Out

Inside each is a slightly less ‘liquid’ seal salted caramel centre. But still, they’re significantly more runny than the sea salt caramels from My Chocolate Bar.

Terre a Terre Salt Caramel Truffles More Goo

The aroma is strange. It reminds me of blowing the chalk off a snooker cue – dry and dusty. When you bite in, the shell is thick, crunchy and serves to offer a haven from the strong and powerful caramel centre given that it’s made from a lovely flavoursome and deep dark chocolate.

I find this caramel a bit too sweet if you get a lot of it in one go. But if you’re fortunate to get some of the dark chocolate with it then it’s pretty damn fantastic. It seems to be like alternating between a hot sauna and then jumping into an ice-cold pool – apparently it’s supposed to be good for you. Not this. It may tantalise your taste buds, but I doubt it’ll do anything for your complexion.

Rating:
  • Taste: 70% – I though the dark chocolate was fantastic, but the caramel a bit too salty
  • Texture: 85% – the crunch of the chocolate was great
  • Appearance: 65% – they’re not made to be given as a gift, but if displayed for a dinner party, they’ll look great
  • Nutritional Information: 50% – there isn’t a lot
  • Price: 75% – good value for money
  • Overall: 69% – the score is hampered by the lack of nutritional information
