ALDI – Specially Selected ChocolateTruffles – Food Review

ALDI, chocolate truffles


This is one product that looks better than the picture.  Along with that, it tastes better than the picture.

March 7, 2016

I picked these up on a whim.  $1.49 on clearance, it was something I couldn’t resist.  I’m not sure when these first appeared.  Perhaps it was Valentine’s Day?

This is another chocolate product imported from Germany.  True to the other chocolates ALDI imports to the US, these are high quality chocolates, especially considering the price.  Finely crafted and a delight to look at, even if made (or considerably helped) by machine, these look almost too good to eat.  That helped me from overindulging and eating the whole box in one sitting.

There are four kinds of truffles in the box; vanilla, sea salt caramel, hazelnut and tuxedo.  Each has a tasty thick creamy filling.   Three of them are round with a flat bottom.  One is a sphere.  Three have a chocolate shell, either milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate.  The spherical one has some sort of hard sugar-based shell.  All have a gently flavored creamy filling.  All are very good.  None is overly sweet.  The white sugar-based shell  is sweeter than the rest.

At the regular price of $2.99 per box these are a bargain priced treat.  As is a problem with many ALDI products, these seem to be a seasonal product.  I’m not sure what the seasons are, or when they’ll appear next.  If you happen to find them on the shelf next time they come around, they’re worth a try.

Calories – 190 per 3 pieces     Price  $2.99 (12 pieces per box)

      I know. All ALDI has to do is find a little bitty shelf space and keep these all year. Even every other month would be a big win.
