Ah, time for another chocolate post. Which is perfectly fine with me seeing as that means I’ve gotten to eat some fabulous chocolate! I got my first taste of Schakolad Chocolate, located at 443 Cool Springs Blvd. in Franklin, at the Taste of Music City back in June. The nice folks were kind enough to send me an email thanking me for stopping by and to come in for two free chocolate-dipped strawberries. Not much arm twisting had to happen to get me in the door! I decided to drop by with fellow chocolate lover, my mom, and indulge in one of our favorite eats.
So, how’s it taste?
Decadent, scrumptious bites of chocolate bliss. The strawberries didn’t last long enough for a picture. I had mine dipped in dark, mom chose white. The smell in the store was divine, which prompted us to buy more tasty treats. In the picture are four coconut truffles (two in dark, two in milk), a chocolate-dipped mint Oreo, and a white chocolate turtle. Narrowing it down to those selections was pure torture as I wanted one of everything in the store. The truffles were the perfect bite of sweet, chocolatey coconut. I could eat those all day. They had a very natural coconut taste that I really liked. The turtle was even better. Gooey caramel and pecans wrapped in sweet white chocolate. It melted in your mouth. My absolute favorite had to be the mint Oreo. I love anything mint, especially with chocolate. The smooth chocolate covering a full-size, crunchy Oreo was so good! Nice contrast of textures and flavors to satisfy any sweet tooth. Yum!
