A Favorite Christmas Tradition: Lindt Chocolate Truffles

For about the last five years now, my mother-in-law has been getting me a package of Lindt Lindor Truffles, and it has become one of my most eagerly anticipated gifts. Since its become an annual indulgence, I've had the opportunity to sample just about every type of their truffles - Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Mint, you name it.

This year became my favorite flavor of all, because I received the Extra Dark Chocolate Truffles. These bad boys have 60% Cocoa, and like all of their truffles, the outer chocolate enrobes a super smooth, super rich filling. And since they're dark chocolate, they are decadent without being overly sweet.

Chocolate Trends from 2007

As 2007 draws to a close, ConfectioneryNews.com takes a look at some of the trends that dominated the chocolate industry this year.

Trend #1: Healthy confectionery and functional ingredients
Lots of manufacturers have added functional "healthy" ingredients, our favorite being from Mars,
CocoaVia Chocolate Snack Bars- CocoaVia contains heart healthy Vitamins B6, B12, Folic Acid, Antioxidants C and E, and is an excellent source of Calcium.

Trend #2: Luxury and premium chocolates
But let's not let this healthy thing get out of hand...there's plenty of super-rich, super-yummy chocolate out there as well this year. One of our favorites is a classic, Godiva Chocolates.

Trend #3: Ethical chocolate
This means Fair Trade chocolate. One really quality piece of fair trade chocolate is the Theo Dark Chocolate Bar - Fair Trade Chocolate from Ghana.
