Oooey Gooey Caramelly Delight!

YES! It’s been a while since the last blog post! Things have been a little busy – but we are here and we are all well and fine! And to prove it to you all, we are going to share something new for that sweet tooth of yours!

This next little bundle of joy comes all the way from the UK! Presenting to you all, The Grown Up Chocolate Company! The packaging and information on all their products clearly states, “Reminiscent of the bars we ate as children, but reimagined for grown-ups”. There’s a kiddo on the front of their products, dressed up as an adult, and then a little note stating, “Nice try kid, but it’s not for you!” and it’s the cutest, most fun packaging!

There are several different varieties to choose from within The Grown Up Chocolate Company brand – from bars to peanut butter cups and caramel truffle cups and more! Today let’s explore the Gorgeously Gooey Caramel Truffle Cups, shall we?

First – as I mentioned, the packaging is super fun! Who wouldn’t want to open this box of chocolate fun? Take note of the messages on the package: “Not For Little Monsters” and “Handmade With Love In the UK” – seriously – how fun is this?! When my 9-year-old asks me if he can have a try, I can just point to the box! Ha ha!

What’s really cool is that there are 6 caramel truffle cups in this package. They are placed in a tray and wrapped.

These Gorgeously Gooey Caramel Truffle Cups are not tiny in size, nor are they super gigantic. They are just a perfect size for popping – and sharing with other grown ups!

If you read the box above, it says, “Six Chocolate Cups Each Filled With Milk Chocolate Toffee and a Runny Caramel Truffle”. I will prove to you that these words are so true! I took a bite of one of these little treats and it was like a fun explosion of caramel running down my hand! I had to quickly adjust myself as I was trying to take photos to share with all of you! I was licking the sides of my hand and trying to avoid caramel contact to the lens and camera body! To show you the true runny caramel I had to place my cup on the box – you can see it oozing and making its escape out of the chocolate! DELICIOUS!

So there you have it! The Gorgeously Gooey Caramel Truffle Cups from The Grown Up Chocolate Company! Extremely fun packaging and branding and a tasty creation within the box! We are currently having a St. Patrick’s Day contest on our Facebook page for those residing within the United States. A lucky winner will be chosen on St. Patrick’s Day to get a bundle of gourmet snacks and treats from us! This is just one of the items we will be including to send to our lucky winner!

For the Love of Milk Chocolate.

When I’m stressed out or something is bugging me, I open up my cupboard doors and scrounge around for something… tasty. Something… chocolatey. And it better be good! Because there are days when I just need something to take my mind away and nothing is worse than old, horrible tasting chocolate. Was it stale? Did someone not cover it up all the way and it’s gotten yucky?

I. Need. Chocolate. NOW!

So… the search is on for another piece of chocolate or candy or something – but what are my odds it’s going to taste any better than what I just had? I keep looking in the cupboard… searching for a small miracle.

Hoping.

Praying.

Wishing… that there’s another bar of chocolate or something, lurking for me behind a box of cereal or behind the kid’s school lunch stuff. Where is it? I *know* I have to have one more bar of tasty goodness somewhere in this mess!

And why yes… what have we found here?? I have found myself some delicious milk chocolate! SCORE for me! And lo’ and behold, it’s Butlers Chocolate! And today I am in luck… it’s even more special than just a milk chocolate bar… it’s a Butlers Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar! Oooooh delicious! Loving this chocolate that comes all the way from Ireland! And check out that creamy chocolate truffle center! Time to nibble!

So, as I sit here and sip my morning coffee, send my oldest off to school on his bicycle (hoping he makes it safely), yell at the cats who are fighting with each other, and wish my youngest a Happy 4th Birthday (and share with him a bit of my milk chocolate truffle bar), I enjoy this little moment of victory – BLISS – and enjoy a quick quiet moment before it all goes out the door. Thank you milk chocolate truffle bar… at least I had that quick, quiet moment. And to think, today I was going to write about National Milk Chocolate Day, but as I soon discovered, I was reading my information incorrectly. That’s actually in July. Today is actually National Chocolate Milk Day. Meh. Give me National “Whatever Type” of Chocolate Day – everyday! Who would argue with me on that? NO ONE!

Is anyoe else sad that we do not have a Butlers Chocolate Café close to us? Chocolate and coffee all in one spot? YES, PLEASE! I think it’s time we pack up, travel and visit one! Oh yeah, here I am again. Hoping. Praying. Wishing… Maybe. Someday!

And speaking of coffee, that topic will be addressed in the next few days! Stay tuned! For now… Nibble, nibble!
