The Guylian seashell truffles are new at the booth this year, and I love the addition. I’ve been a huge fan of these truffles since I was at University in the UK (way back in the 90′s ;-D), when I would save my pence to buy a little box of these yummy seashell-shaped, hazelnut-chocolate flavored treats for myself whenever I could. So I was pretty excited to see them added to the menu, giving the Belgium booth a sweet dessert.
So, let me try to describe to you what these chocolates are like. Basically, you’ve got the visual aspect of these gorgeous, swirled chocolate truffles that are all perfectly molded to seascape perfection.
Then, inside, you bite into a smooth, whipped-but-firm truffle texture with a slight bit of hazelnut flavor and a burst of chocolate. (If you like Nutella, you’ll like these!) They melt on your tongue, but have enough substance to not be “liquid-y” as you eat them.
These are an appropriately-sized, delicious indulgence that compliment the rest of the Belgium food booths menu items very well. Order them with the Godiva chocolate coffee for a double dose of sweet!
If you’ve tried Guylian truffles at the festival or at home, let us know what you think in the comments!
As I mentioned in my Party for the Senses review, Guylian Chocolates was kind enough to sponsor my tickets for the Party. Thanks again to Guylian for the opportunity to go to Party for the Senses and for the chance to write about a product I already knew and loved!
