Aldi's $3 Chocolate Truffles Are My New Favorite Treat
They'd also be the perfect gift for your dark chocolate–loving Valentine!
This is Obsessed: my weekly column devoted to sharing all the things I'm loving right now—from unique food and gift ideas to travel destinations and beauty products—plus some tips and tricks for living your best life.
Aldi used to give me major anxiety, but I've learned to shop at less crowded times and I now enjoy all of the awesome seasonal products the store has to offer. Not to mention the fact that everything is SO. DANG. INEXPENSIVE.
Aldi recently sent me some goodies to try, and though there were lots of yummy things, one *really* stood out: Aldi's Specially Selected Belgian Cocoa Dusted Truffles. They're made of rich, dark, buttery chocolate that's been rolled in a thin layer of cocoa powder for a slightly bitter and coffee-like finish.
They're seriously addicting, and I've never loved a 8-ounce box of $3 chocolate so much in my life. Honestly, I have a hard time believing they're that inexpensive, because they taste really luxe.
What's perhaps most impressive about these chocolates is that they're UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certified, which means they're sustainably sourced, help fight environmental issues and improve working conditions for farmers. Pretty cool, right?
While these truffles are definitely a treat—a four-truffle serving has 240 calories, 16 grams of saturated fat and 16 grams of sugar—they're so decadent that I can usually cut the serving size in half and still satisfy my (usually untamable) sweet tooth after dinner.
These babies hit Aldi stores on 1/29. Do yourself a favor and pick up a box or two. They'd make great gifts for your Valentine (or yourself).
