Teuscher Beverly Hills: Cinnamon Truffle (But You Can't Have It)

As noted before, I’m behind on my reviews, just now touching on the delightful chocolates I picked up at the Beverly Hills Teuscher boutique in February. I have, at least, finished writing about the bars I got there. Now, I must, yes must, discuss that beautiful red box filled with truffles.

They’re all worthy of discussion, but first, I’ll go over the cinnamon truffle, which will likely not be available again until the November/December holidays.

I do this to torture you. Do you want a Teuscher cinnamon truffle? No. You can’t have one. Not for MONTHS.

But neither can I. And now I’m more upset than you. Damn. In the meantime, I can reminisce about the subtle cinnamon aroma of this truffle.

The interior is soft and creamy, with the cinnamon flavor following the chocolate flavor. The cinnamon itself is more of a sweet cinnamon than a spicy cinnamon, and is well-balanced with the chocolate, as neither is dominant. The shell, which features an earthy flavor, adds complexity but is unfortunately just a bit too thick for the soft interior, and some flaking is almost inevitable.

The flavor is still incredible. And worth picking up a few stray bits of chocolate. Sadly…no more of these until the late fall.

Are there any limited-edition chocolates that you miss in the springtime?


  1. Oh wow!!!!!! Now I want one.....why did you have to post this?? :P

  2. I adore cinnamon chocolate, but sadly I can't really think of any available here in Australia (at least in block form -as you know, I rarely buy truffles!)

  3. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

  4. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto
    a friend who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that I
    found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.
    ... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your web site.

    Here is my homepage - Your anchor text - -

  5. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
