With the holidays around the corner, what better way to add a little sweet treat to your family’s stockings than with locally made chocolate company – Truffle Pig Chocolates.
Why support local and Direct Trade
Truffle Pig Chocolates is based in Burnaby, BC and owned by Shelley Wallace since 2007. Recently, she made an ethical stand to source cacao that is direct, sustainable and fully transparent in how its harvested.
They proudly source their cacao directly from farmers with strong human values and pay them a premium above world market prices. Their Central American cacao is grown wildly, beyond organic, without the use of fertilizers or pesticides, which they can guarantee as they make personal trips to the farms to see the whole process.
They have gone above and beyond by ensuring a completely transparent supply chain with traceable ingredients. I really appreciate this as not all companies go to these lengths to ensure they are doing things right.
Assorted Chocolate Piglets
They have assorted Truffle Piglets if you want a bite sized treat. The piglets come in:
- 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Peppermint Piglets
- 47% Cacao Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Piglets
- 47% Cacao Milk Chocolate Piglets
- 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Piglets
All great flavours but the most festive one is definitely the Dark Chocolate Peppermint Piglets. Subtle peppermint flavour that isn’t too powerful.
Truffle Pig Bars
Their regular sized bars are a treat and great for sharing. They are shaped like piggies too and looks super cute. They come in:
- 47% Cacao Milk Chocolate Bar
- 47% Cacao Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar
- 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bar
- 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bar with Crunchy Almonds and Sea Salt
I’m a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate, so I naturally gravitated towards the 47% Cacao Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar. All of them were great quality and you can’t go wrong.
Chocolate Dipped Gourmet Marshmallows
Inside is a marshmallow enrobed in chocolate and it’s just delicious. Pair it with some hot chocolate and it really hits the spot. My husband couldn’t stop eating these with a cup of coffee.
The Princess Collection comes in a variety of flavours, In the 5 pack, there is – Earl Grey, Sea Salt Caramel, Lavender, Matcha and Praline.
You can’t just have one hahaha. It makes for a great gift.
