Enjoyed as a delicacy across the world, truffles are a dream come true for the creative chocolatier, offering a quick, punchy and multi-flavoured experience with endless potential for tweaking and enhancements. |
A range of brands are ahead of the curve as far as testing and pushing the mouth-watering limits of truffle composition goes; here we showcase some of the wildest products out there today, all available from hf Chocolates’ wide range of wholesale confectionery. These truffles combine decadence, novelty and globally-inspired additions so be sure to look out for the following A-listers.
The Rum Sozzled Sultana – Soaked to Perfection
From the pioneering and esteemed Booja-Booja brand comes a delightful product that is not only delicious but also ethical. Devoid of wheat, dairy and GMOs, and officially backed by the Vegan Society, these truffles are a top pick for the clean-eating consumer. Their small element of mischief comes in the form of the tasty, 24-hour rum drenched sultanas.
Yuzu Sake – Japanese Decadence
Mixing sake, the famous Japanese alcoholic delicacy, with truffle was always going to be a winner; credit goes to Prestat for coming up with such a combination. Taking advantage of a range of ingredients, this creation adds white chocolate cream to zesty fruit, before adding the sake and encasing the resulting masterpiece in a sugar-coated chocolate shell. Add to this the vibrant yellow packaging that houses these truffles and you can be sure of a product that will capture the consumer’s attention.
Prosecco Popping Candy – Fizzing Intrigue
From Ko-Koá comes a sparkling fusion that will literally leave your customers mouths tingling! Fortified with popping candy, these milk chocolate-based truffles have the added bonus of coming in customisable, part see-through packaging that will allow eager consumers to be inspired by the explosive treats inside. Alternatively, for something with a little less fizz, consider Ko-Koá’s vintage truffle collection, which comprehensively showcases the best that these truffle specialists have to offer and comes elegantly encased in a traditional chocolate tin.
Brussels Spout – Love Them or Love Them
Fear not, we’re still dealing with truffle and wholesale confectionery innovations and haven’t side-tracked to opinion-dividing festive vegetables. That said, these delicacies from Lessiter’s could have your customers fooled in look though certainly not in taste! They make a fun and unique addition to any display.
Great British Puddings – Tasty Reminiscence
Credit for this innovation goes to Sussex based Montezuma’s, who have doubled down on deserts by artfully re-imaging a range of British classic sweets in truffle form. Let your customers recollect a selection of their favourite deserts conveniently from a single, union-jack emblazoned box, which offers up Lemon Meringue, Apple Crumble, Eton Mess and Black Forest truffle treats.
