Nicobella Truffles (Product Review)

Note: Thanks to Nicobella for sending me these AWESOME vegan dark chocolate truffles. I was a little skeptical of how they would taste, but so far, they are 2 for 2. I have tried the coca bliss and the sunflower banana butter and they are so delicious. Not only are they tasty, but they are much healthier than regular chocolates. I had to put the box back in the fridge or else I would have eat the rest. I can't wait to sample the rest. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend you try these delicious treats. Oh wow, I am was impressed.

From their website:
"Nicobella vegan organic dark chocolate truffles take the concept of the decadent truffle to a new level. By replacing the cream and sugar*, that is typically in the ganache center, with vegan natural ingredients and infusing each truffle with super rich antioxidant foods, such as blueberries, green tea, sunflower seed butter, and pumpkin, there is finally something available for the health conscious individual that is lower in fat and sugar AND good for the body. nicobella vegan organic dark chocolate truffles are a tasty and sensual indulgence that will tempt your taste buds, nourish your body and awaken your soul."
*Please note that the 70% dark chocolate that we use contains organic cane sugar. However, to sweeten the ganache we use either agave nectar or brown rice syrup.

The flavors are:
1.) Walnut Flaxseed Crunch
2.) Sunflower Banana Butter (See pic 1 below)
3.) Pumpkin Chai
4.) Blueberry Almond
5.) Ginger Green tea
6.) Pure Cocoa Bliss- (See pic 2 below)
