Imagine this: you’re wandering the aisles of a comic convention, hungry and tired, and suddenly you see an oasis–an oasis covered in chocolate. That’s how I felt when I spotted The Truffle Cottage at Salt Lake Comic Con. The company combines unique flavor profiles with novelty designs. And by novelty, I mean stormtrooper heads and other Star Wars molds, Hylian Shields from Legend of Zelda, Poké Balls and eggs from Pokémon, Harley Quinn and Joker, Harry Potter Hogwarts house designs, and Supernatural truffles. Are you drooling yet? These pictures will help:
I love the pearlescent finish on the shields.
The harsh convention lighting and my phone’s camera don’t do The Truffle Cottage’s work justice, but trust me when I say they spare no details with their creations.
I was drawn to the chocolates because of the craftsmanship and thoughtfulness—e.g., the Dean Winchester chocolate had an apple pie flavor, the Hogwarts truffles had butterbeer flavored filling—and I was completely sold after I sampled a few different items. The quality and taste were both excellent, and I wish I would have brought home more treats. Luckily for me and for anyone else not located near their location in Pleasant Grove, Utah, you can order from The Truffle Cottage’s website. I recommend browsing the site just to see the variety of fandoms represented. Don’t forget to jump to the gallery below to see more sugary + awesome chocolates.
