Have we reached peak Pumpkin spice flavour? Not yet!

I actually really enjoy this flavour- even though I haven’t yet had a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks or anything, it is a favourite and I will make an effort to get out and have at least one PSL latte this season.

That was why I was pretty thrilled to find that Purdy’s has two seasonal Pumpkin chocolates, a truffle and a caramel.

And, being the chocoholic that I am, I tried both. The verdict? YUM! I ate WAY too much chocolate yesterday, trying both of those, the caramel sea-salt chocolate, the pecan chocolate, a maple caramel (more on that later, can’t have too many chocolate reviews today).

The Pumpkin Truffle is delicately spiced, with subtle pumpkin notes mingling with nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of ginger. You have to like the texture and flavour of pumpkin, as it is very convincing here. A beautiful truffle that goes down easy and is quite smooth. Milk chocolate shell.

The Pumpkin Caramel is bolder. The spice level is not as subtle, and the pumpkin flavour is much more toned down in favour of a stronger spice ‘bite’. I liked it, but did enjoy the pumpkin truffle more. Try this one if you want more of a spicy finish with a chew. The chew was thoroughly enjoyable, and didn’t get stuck to my teeth.

So there you have it- two seasonal chocolates, two very different ‘mouth-feels’ and a bit of a different taste to both. You have to like Pumpkin Spice though!

It really turned my day around yesterday, and now I can’t wait to get home and eat a few more of these. Fabulous!
