I had occasion to try fresh Leonidas chocolates while I was in Brussels.
(There are Leonidas chocolate shops in DC, NYC, and elsewhere in the
U.S. & Canada. See http://www.leonidas-chocolate.com/ for a list of
locations and professional reviews) I thought I had died and gone to
heaven! The aroma, taste, and especially the texture of these chocolates
were unlike those of any other gourmet chocolates I'd tasted before.
These are definitely top quality chocolates. (Although I prefer dark
chocolate, I sampled an assortment of milk and dark chocolates.) They
literally melted in my mouth, without a hint of waxiness or chewiness.
I could taste the butter, the cream, and the cocoa. The filling flavors
(such as grand marnier truffle, vanilla butter cream, Gianduja,
orange-flavored ganache, and cognac truffle) did not overwhelm the
flavor of the chocolate itself, but perfectly complemented it.
