Selections
Couverture: Schokinag
White Mystery #1 – creamy-delish but what is it?; nondescript, banquet hall ornament
White Mystery #2 – same as #1
Chai – full-on creamed 5-spice deluxe; finishes on butter crème
Mocha – frothy double whip latte ‘til the butta comes home
Coconut Crème – bottled daiquiri; sweet to make the teeth hurt
Red Raspberry – more of the same base creamery base; jammy
Dulce de Leche – indistinct; resembles the White Mysteries (above)
Passion Fruit – tiny subtle; dives in the vat of cacáo black; excellent
Milk Chocolate ParfaitQueen Bee Garden honey flavor hairpins into candy store variety
Champagne – shy & even, w/out effervescence; restraint w/ class
Golden Cinnamon – stands straight in the sinking texture of ganache; tails into a vanilla butter crème; respectable
Celestial Sweetie – trace too sweet, otherwise signature piece
