Ghost Truffle – New Flavor

I finally found some organic ghost chili to make into a new truffle flavor. After trying our Firecracker Chocolate, several of our customers have been asking for us to make a ghost chili chocolate for the past couple of years.

We’ll be debuting this new flavor at the Great Wine Festival this upcoming weekend. It’s not one to pair with any wine, but the chili fans should get a “kick” out of this one.

I’ll only a have a few samples available this weekend, so if you want to take a chance and give it try, come by our table early!!!
