Monsieur truffle, I have expensive taste

Monsieur Truffle is just around the corner from my work which is very dangerous because if I feel that I really need chocolate it is just a little bit too close and at $10 a bar it is the most expensive chocolate I have ever purchased.

Unfortunately I am slowly becoming addicted to there chocolate. I have been slowly trying their different flavoured chocolate bars, caramelised almond, hazelnut etc. The caramel specks is probably my favourite, with crisp caramel bits, maybe it is because I haven't seen another dark chocolate caramel bar that is vegan:

I tried to get an inside shot but struggled because apparently button likes the chocolate too
My only problem is I still eat it like it is regular chocolate, consuming a bar in 1-2 days. Yes I need an intervention!

They also sell dark chocolate almond clusters, a whole range of exotic dark chocolate bars and rich dark chocolate flakes to make an incredible rich hot chocolate. Most of their dark chocolate options appear to be vegan!

It's almost the end of Aus/NZ Vegan Mofo (Month of food) and I'm pretty proud of my increase in number of posts but it will probably mean that I will need to decrease my posts in October and spend a little more time on my neglected thesis. I've really enjoyed the experience though, I think it helped me to get out of my food slump.


  1. That sounds like an amazing chocolate shop especially as they sell vegan chocolate with caramel, yum!

    I haven't been eating much chocolate but lately I've discovered some delicious dark chocolates and now I find myself eating some every day :)

  2. That chocolate shop sounds awesome. I also unfortunately (fortunately??) have a chocolate shop just across the road from my work. Luckily they only have a few vegan options but the ones they have are pretty amazing.

  3. Ummm... vegan dark chocolate and caramel bars? I pray they have a mail order service! Though probably the onset of summer is not the best time for posting of chocolate!
