I love partnering with Maine based companies and I’m thrilled to be working with Black Dinah Chocolatiers based out of Isle au Haut, a small island off the coast. Maine is such an amazing place and the people are even better. We take pride in the work we do and we believe in creating lasting relationships and building stronger communities. That’s one of the things that really drew me to Black Dinah’s products, Kate and Steve believe in creating a better world through chocolate… I mean, come on, is there an better way to do it? They’re pretty much genius I’d say! You can read more about Black Dinah Chocolatiers here and in the photo below.
When my chocolates arrived in the mail from Black Dinah Chocolatiers, they were safely and beautifully packaged in a heart shaped box. I couldn’t wait to try all of the unique and adventurous truffles awaiting me. They have such a wide and intriguing selection of flavors which you can check out here.
So let’s talk about these chocolates, they can pretty much be described in one word: AMAZING!
First of all the texture of each truffle was amazing, silky ganache and caramel centers tucked into some of the most amazing milk, white, and dark chocolates you’ve ever had. The flavors were incredible and strong in the sense that the Hazelnut Latte will wake you up and the Gonne, Maude (which has Irish Whiskey in it) will knock you on your ass if you have too many.
Seriously, though, these truffles are a slippery slope.
After Matt and I sampled all of the chocolates and went into a sugar coma we decided that our favorites were Earl Grey (pictured above) and the Flagship Caramel. It was really hard to choose between all of the flavors, each with it’s own intensity and notes that were out of this world. The chocolate that we found the most interesting was the Sexi Mexi made with ancho chiles and cinnamon. It was so strange how the the flavors heated up in your mouth yet didn’t burn it. Now that’s some crazy chemistry!
