Thread: Montezumas Big Vegan Truffle!

  1. #1

    Default Montezumas Big Vegan Truffle!

    My boyf. got me one of these on Valentines:

    http://www.montezumas.co.uk/search/s...g=&i=1431&pg=1

    Ingredients: Coating (dark shavings & freeze dried cherry), Shell (dark chocolate), Ganache (dark chocolate, fondant, coconut oil, champagne, champagne concentrate, wheat syrup, soya lecithin). Dark Chocolate (cocoa solids 60%) Non Organic.

    VERY nice. Not overly sweet like some of their other truffles. Lasted all of about 5 seconds, with the rest of the Montezumas stuff I got!

    How come it took you so long to eat? Sounds like a fine present, I had some regular-sized Montezuma truffles that went down nicely a while back.

    Haha, yeah I did feel like a total glutton gnawing on it!

    I suppose 4 quid is pretty dear. Another quid and that's a box of Booja Booja truffles!

    ...I would never name a food company Montezuma.

    Yes, I must admit Montezuma's Revenge was my first thought on coming across Montezuma's, but if you eat enough of the chocolate it seems to break the association

    Bryzee, it is expensive but Valentine's day comes but once a year after all!

    Yeah. But I'm glad I looked at this thread. It reminded me to try and buy valentine's candy that's been put on clearance! *to the internet!*

    Wow! I've just seen this. Emailed my o/h to ask him to get me one (there's a Montezumas near his work).

    For 4 I can't imagine it's much bigger than a triple normal sized one. (My o/h says he'll get me one!)

    Well my o/h went into the London branch near his workplace yesterday but didn't buy me one because the stooopid bloke behind the counter convinced him that it wasn't vegan.

    Well he showed him the milk and the plain valentine truffles and when asked he told him neither were vegan.
    eta And apparently it is the shop assistant my o/h always sees in there so it's not like he was a part time weekend person - should know better.

    maybe he was just trying to be on the safe side if he wasn't sure, but it sounds like he should know the facts about their chocolates! i find the staff in the Brighton branch rarely know about the 10% Viva! discount they're supposed to give to members.
