Square Life Round World

I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

Godiva Chocolate Truffle Flight

on October 25, 2013

Thursday I had the opportunity to do something fun and free.  I participated in a complimentary Godiva Truffle Flight tasting.  Earlier in the week I got an email saying my local Godiva store would be offering this experience for one night only.  The email instructed me to call and schedule my appointment.  When I called, they were very clear that if you were not on time for your appointment, you would not be able to participate.  My parents were in town to take me out to dinner for my birthday, and I thought it would be a delicious way to end the evening.  So, after dinner, the three of us headed over to the Godiva store, not really knowing what to expect.

There were about 10 people participating in the flight at the same time we were.  Each station was set up with its own gold box of six truffles, a tasting chart, an ink pen for taking tasting notes, and a cup of water.

Each station was set up like this.

It was set up very similar to a wine tasting if you’ve ever done one of those.  Godiva offers six different truffle flights, and we got to experience the Milk Chocolate Lovers Truffle Flight.

The six truffles offered were Chocolate Éclair, Milk Chocolate Mousse, Milk Chocolate, Butterscotch Walnut, Salted Almond, and Hazelnut Crunch.

My favorites were Chocolate Éclair, and Butterscotch Walnut.  The interesting thing about Butterscotch Walnut is that it was created for Godiva by Duff Goldman, of Food Network’s Ace of Cakes fame.

The experience only lasted about 20 minutes, and I was only able to have a little bite of each, being full from dinner.  We were able to take the rest of our chocolates home with us, though.

All three of us really enjoyed it.  Each flight box sells for $16 in the stores, so to be able to experience this for free was very generous of Godiva.

Have you tried Godiva’s truffle flights?
