Tasty Tuesday: The Madelaine Chocolate Company

Happy Tuesday! :)

Prior to writing this post, I enjoyed a delicious piece of brownie -- I believe that life isn't complete without dessert, haha! I am a chocoholic, and that is why I am ecstatic to be working with The Madelaine Chocolate Company! :D


Established in 1949, their delicious chocolates have been a part of American family life for 60 years.
They have dedicated themselves to perfecting the superior taste and quality of their chocolate. Their belief that everyone should be able to afford great tasting chocolate is what drives their commitment to their customers, and ensures that they never compromise on flavor or quality.

Their shipping is fast and reliable -- my package was delivered to my doorstep in 5 days! :)

Specialty Gourmet Chocolate Especially For You From... The Madelaine Chocolate Company!

The chocolates were prepared and packaged really nicely, as you can see above and below.

Caramel Truffles, White Chocolate Truffles, and Hazelnut Truffles

Estee from The Madelaine Chocolate Company generously sent me three kinds of chocolates to try and review for you guys -- Thanks, Estee! :)


Just judging from the way their chocolates are packaged, you can really tell that they make sure every aspect of their products is of the utmost quality.

I especially love their attention to detail -- the ribbons and the label seen above are a nice touch.


Extreme summer heat + Chocolates in the mail = Not a good mix, right?!
But not with The Madelaine Chocolate Company

They make sure that their chocolates don't melt in transit -- the chocolates are wrapped in a bubble wrap and are placed inside an insulated foil bag. To add to that, they also come with two ice packs = the chocolates arrived in perfect condition! :)

Speaking of the chocolates, let's talk about them...

1. GOLD FOILED HAZELNUT TRUFFLES (16 pieces) --


Layered dark chocolate and milk chocolate blended with pure hazelnut paste from Italy, wrapped in two-tone gold Italian foil.


These are so delicious -- total chocolate!
Because they were very rich, I ate each piece one small bite at a time -- it was absolute heaven! ;)

2. CARAMEL FILLED TWIST WRAP TRUFFLES (9 pieces) --


Premium milk chocolate ball filled with buttery caramel, wrapped in gold foil.


Chocolate and caramel is a classic combination, and these didn't disappoint.
The caramel is so soft -- it definitely melts in your mouth, it's amazing!

3. WHITE CHOCOLATE TWIST WRAP TRUFFLES (9 pieces) --


Premium white chocolate truffles, wrapped in blue foil.


I love love love white chocolate, so it's no surprise that this is my favorite out of the three. ;)
The white chocolate is so creamy and so delicious, I love it!
