Utah Truffles Review and Giveaway 4 Winners *CLOSED*


I recently did a Travel in the U.S.A post highlighting Salt Lake City. Since then, I have been searching for companies who manufacture products in Salt Lake City or the greater Salt Lake Valley. I didn't have to look long. In my workplace, we already order from UTAH TRUFFLES. I have had the luxury of taking advantage of their good customer service and their great tasting product. I have seen Utah Truffles at many of my local grocery stores.

I love chocolate. As far as I'm concerned, it should be it's own food group. Anytime I go on a diet, I leave enough wiggle room for one piece of chocolate a day.

I chose the 12 piece chocolate box to review.  The box retails for $9.50 which is a good price for the quality of chocolates inside. The twelve piece box contains two each of the following flavors all in milk chocolate: milk chocolate, toffee, mint, raspberry, almond, orange. The chocolate is creamy and nearly melts in your mouth. My take on each flavor in the order of what I liked best to the least.

Milk chocolate - I liked the flavor of the chocolate without any additions. The outside is a little harder than the inside but just enough to give it the feeling of biting into a truffle. Inside the chocolate was rich and creamy without being too soft. A definite must try.
Toffee - This came in a very close second. I loved the little toffee bits added to the creamy interior.
Mint - For those that like a taste of mint, this is perfect. It is like a mint melt away and has a good flavor.
Raspberry - I'll admit it, I don't always like the taste of fruit in my chocolate, but I did like this. The raspberry flavoring was not overpowering, but added added a subtle fruit flavor to an already great piece of chocolate.
Almond - I usually love nuts in my chocolate. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the almond chocolate. There was one small piece of almond inside, but the almond flavor mostly tasted like almond extract. Still a good piece of chocolate, but it would be the piece I would take a bite of and leave in the box for last or hope somebody else ate it.
Orange - Like I said, I don't usually like the taste of fruit in my chocolate unless it tastes more like chocolate. The orange flavor was a little stronger than the raspberry. If you like orange flavored chocolates, you will like this. I would rather choose my calories for the ones I love the most.

Utah Truffles are definitely a nice bridge between the lower end chocolate and the expensive upper end. The chocolate is creamy and not waxy. I would gladly recommend these delicious chocolates.


Besides the yummy chocolate, Utah Truffles boasts some other great aspects. I have always enjoyed great customer service. I love supporting local companies. I am also impressed with their private label option. Utah Truffles has individually wrapped chocolates and boxes in which you can add your company logo. What a great way to thank your customers. Who doesn't like chocolate? I've ordered from companies before who put a small treat in their order and it always makes me smile. This would also be great for bloggers or small business owners. How about leaving them on a guest pillow in a Bed and Breakfast? Those little things are what makes customers come back.

Now for the giveaway. Utah Truffles is generously giving not one, but 4 lucky winners a 12 piece box to hoard for themselves and two 4 piece boxes to share.
