If you have perused the product reviews on Go Dairy Free, then you may have stumbled across my raves for Lagusta's Luscious. This one of a kind trufflery is run by Lagusta herself, with each chocolate handmade in Lagusta's vegan kitchen. If you have ever gone on a mission for dairy-free truffles, then you know how difficult it can be to find a single creamy offering, let alone an entire range of flavors. Yet, that is just what Lagusta offers, and she is always busy inventing new flavor creations, such as the truffles in her new Pink Box …
According to Lagusta, "Originally this was going to be the Hudson Valley Box and it was going to contain truffles made with local ingredients from our neighborhood, the Hudson Valley of New York. But once we paired our brand new local-beet truffle with our brand new local-apple truffle, we couldn't resist adding our bestselling, beloved (albeit not particularly local) pomegranate truffle with a rose petal garnish to the box — and the Pink Box was born."
The new Pink Box includes:
3 Fennel-Apple truffles: Freshly-ground fennel seeds are combined with fennel pollen (what's fennel pollen?) and local apple brandy and rolled in pulverized organic apples grown by my friend, sweet farmer Billiam at Liberty View Farm.
3 Coriander-Beet truffles: It's not weird, I promise! A coriander-flavored interior is rolled in pulverized organic beets grown with care right down the road from our kitchen by my farmer pal Jessica.
2 Pomegranate truffles: With rose petal garnish. A little tartness compliments the chocolate nicely – this one is a flavor bomb.
All truffles can be ordered from the Lagusta's Luscious website, but get your order in early, as they typically take a limited number of orders with each batch run.
