A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Foodbuzz asking me if I was interested in being a part of their new Featured Publisher Tastemaker Program.  My immediate answer … YEP.  Now, what is it?!

The Tastemaker Program is the latest and greatest from Foodbuzz that will allow us to sample different goodies offered by the top-quality food producers in the food space.  I’m in … for sure. 

I received my first sampling package in the mail today …




It was packed with goodies from Cowgirl Chocolates.  Right off the bat, I was impressed by the care taken in packaging their mighty fine chocolates.  So pretty that I almost didn’t want to open the box.




That’s where husband’s come in handy … they don’t care what the packaging looks like.  It’s what inside that matters.  When I told Devin that I wanted his “assistance” in reviewing these great chocolates, he had the pretty bow off before I could even blink.




Then, he took his “assistance” duties even one step further by immediately popping the pretty metallic red-wrapped Raspberry Dark Chocolate truffle in his mouth.  The whole thing, folks.  He didn’t even bite me off a little bite so I could just have a taste. 

So, since I have no idea what the Raspberry Dark Chocolate truffle tastes like, here’s his official review …

It’s a little bit too sweet.


Wow.  My guy should not quit his day job. 


This is how the rest of our conversation went after that …


Me:  Well, it’s chocolate, so it should be sweet.

Him:  Yep, it’s a little bit too sweet.

Me:  Ok, ok.  What about the raspberry flavor?

Him:  Huh?

Me:  The card said it was raspberry-flavored.

Him:  Oh, yeah, it was good.


At this point, I just stopped.  There was no point.  I remined myself that these babies were called Cowgirl Chocolates.

So, we moved on to another flava … aqua-wrapped Double Dark Chocolate




And it was just that … pure, rich dark chocolate.  Nothing fancy here, but still very good.  Chocolate always is, right?

The final truffle we tried before we hid the box away in the pantry was the silver-wrapped Milk Chocolate.  Whoa.  This about knocked my socks off.  It was melt-in-your-mouth good and I allowed it to do just that.  I savored every bit of this one … which was only about 1/4 of it.  Devin ate the rest.  I can say with certainty that he’s a big fan of Cowgirl Chocolates.




So far, the Milk Chocolate is the winner.  We’ll have more flavor-full reviews to come – we still have 6 pieces left.  I’ve already instructed Devin not to touch the box without my presence … these people were kind enough to send me their fancy chocolates and expect some semblance of a review.  We’ll see if my cowboy listens …
