Giveaway & Product Review - Gluten Free Handcrafted Vegan Truffles from Missionary Chocolates




WOW! Do I have a yummy giveaway for you! If you like Truffles then you will love these delicious, handcrafted, gluten free, vegan truffles by Missionary Chocolates. This is your chance to savor a collection of rich, uniquely flavored truffles made by hand from the artisans at Missionary Chocolates. The first lucky Gluten Free Taste of Home follower chosen will win an 8 piece box of Missionary Chocolates and the second Gluten Free Taste of Home follower will win a 4 piece box of Missionary Chocolates! What a sweet way to bring in the New Year!


The flavor selection that Missionary Chocolates has to offer is cutting edge, and oh so tempting! You will find scrumptious flavor combinations such as: Meyer Lemon Explosion, Glorious Ginger, Smooth Espresso Squares, Spicy Cinnamon Chipolte, Dark Chocolate Delight, Peanut Butter Perfection, Coconut Silk, Sweet Raspberry Hearts, Peppermint Perfection, Salted Vanilla Caramels and Coconut Curry Lemongrass.



A message for you from Missionary Chocolates:

"Our vision at Missionary Chocolates is to create vegan truffles that surpass all expectations whether you are specifically seeking a non-dairy confection, or you just love excellent chocolate! Our truffles are so incredibly rich and creamy that they satisfy even the most elevated chocolate-connoisseur palate!
We want to enthrall you with our wonderful dairy-free, gluten-free confections. All of our truffles are made by hand in Portland, and are created using the freshest local and organic products available to us. We use only Oregon-grown berries, and take pride in using organic coffee, locally-grown peppermint oil and superior quality Fair-Trade Guittard chocolate.
We have some of the most unique and exciting flavors to be found in any chocolate confections, and are thrilled to be able to share these exceptional truffles with you.
Our product lines vary with the influence of the seasons, so visit us often to experience innovative new flavors that surprise and delight!"

I was so excited when I received my sample truffles from Missionary Chocolates; I couldn't wait to open the pretty purple box and taste one! From the very first bite I was in "truffle heaven". I was amazed at how velvety smooth and rich these truffles were! Don't let the words vegan or dairy-free fool you... Missionary Chocolates has perfected the art of making gluten free, vegan, truffles that have the same smooth silky rich taste and texture that you would expect from a non-vegan truffle.

My favorite flavors? Hmmmmm.... that's a really tough choice because they were all fabulous! If I had to narrow it down, my top 5 favorite flavors would be: Meyer Lemon Explosion, Sweet Raspberry Hearts, and Spicy Cinnamon Chipolte. What? You have never tasted spicy chocolate? It's time to try it! Talk about a wonderful marriage of flavors, Spicy Cinnamon Chipolte truffles from Misioanry Chocolates taste truly amazing!

You can order these decadent gluten free, vegan, handcrafted Chocolates directly from the Missionary Chocolates website. They are also available at several locations throughout Oregon, and in New York. California locations are coming soon.
