About Cowgirl Chocolates (Taken From Their Website):
Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates.
Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 16 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho USA. It has also been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and in the New York Times and Toronto Star among others.
My family was kindly sent a sample box of Cowgirl Chocolates for review and I must say these babies come wrapped in a beautiful package once out of the shipping package! I wish I would have taken the time to get the package cover before I ripped it off to get a taste of these delicious chocolates! I was quite surprised at first by the taste I knew they were supposed to be spicy chocolates but with the first bite or two I didn’t feel nor taste the spice but after popping the rest of the truffle in my mouth and really taking the time to chew it good well…lets just say the spice is there and it caught me a little off guard! But I do love these chocolates and so does my hubby who was raised on a farm and calls him self a Cowboy I don’t consider myself a Cowgirl by no means I’m a Rock Diva but I will for sure be keeping these chocolates around for us both and I’m thinking about sending some to a few of my good ol’ country friends that I know will love these treats!
It didn’t take long for all the truffles to be devoured after they arrived I’d say they were gone in about 2 days (but it wasn’t just me eating them) we had my mom and dad over for dinner in our new house the day after we got the truffles and my dad certainly helped devour them he said “These are the best chocolates I’ve ever put in my mouth!!!”
I really recommend these chocolates as a gift for the chocolate lover on your list this year because they are so unique and different that I just know anyone who receives these chocolates are going to be in love!
