Dean's Sweets - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

It's no secret, I like chocolate. It's even better if it's chocolate that's got a distinct taste and made from fine ingredients. There is a difference in chocolate brands, and some rise above others.

Dean's Sweets offers elegant, extraordinary, hand-dipped truffles created from the finest imported dark chocolate. Some of their luscious flavors include brandy, rum, scotch, orange, raspberry, coffee, peppermint, ginger, plain, and cayenne. All truffles are covered in a rich dark chocolate coating. You know you are eating gourmet chocolates when you take a bite of Dean's Sweets truffles.


I received two sets of truffles from Dean's Sweets to try, the Spicy and Maine Mix varieties. Each gift set was elegantly packaged with a pretty maroon bow. Each truffle was also placed atop a brown liner. The Spicy truffles included Cinnamon, Ginger, Cayenne, and Hot Coffee flavors. It's not everyday that I get to taste chocolates infused with these particular flavors. The rich chocolate truffles were delectable and had an essense of each flavor. Of the Spicy Mix, my favorite was Hot Coffee. The Cayenne truffle had a bit of a kick to it. I'm not generally a big fan of Cinnamon but it wasn't overpowering and the balance of chocolate with it made it an agreeable combination.
The Maine Mix included Blueberry, Maple, Maine Sea Salt, and Needham flavors. The infused flavors with the chocolate of the truffles was amazing. The Maine Sea Salt truffle had a sprinkling of sea salt on top.

I can't rave enough out Dean's Sweets. It's like edible heaven in your mouth. The chocolate is rich so one or two pieces at a time is enough. I don't have a nut allergy, but those who do will be glad to know that there are no nuts or nut products used in any of Dean's Sweets products. The price point for these truffles is a little higher than what you'd pay for normal chocolate, but Dean's Sweets confections aren't your normal chocolate. They're made with quality ingredients and each piece is hand-dipped.
Win It!

One person will win Maine Mix Truffles with Elegant Gift Box - 16 piece. (ARV $29.50)
