Candyblogging: Jack Daniel’s Filled Chocolates

This weekend, my wife and I decided to try a bag of Jack Daniel's Filled Chocolates.

Our local import store has just undergone a remodeling and has brought in a whole slew of new candies and chocolates to help in their re-opening, and just in time for Valentine's Day.

Yamaya (the import store) is stocking three varieties of liquor filled chocolates made by Turin of Mexico: Jack Daniel's Whiskey, Kahlua Coffee Liquor, and Bailey's Irish Cream.  We picked up a small bag of the Jack Daniel's as well as a small bag of Kahlua although we have not opened the later yet.

As I said, the candies are manufactured by Turin Chocolates of Mexico, although the website seems to be down at the moment.  (www.turin.com.mx according to the bag.)  The chocolate is good but not exceptional, and semisweet.  The liquor is allowed to fully saturate the candies, making a sweet burn in one's throat, almost as if you did a (very small) shot immediately after eating a chocolate.

I found them to be good, but an unusual combination.  And although stronger than other liquor filled chocolates I have had in the past, they had no aftertaste of liquor.  For anyone (like me) who seems to have trouble stopping after only a single piece, I had no difficulties in saying one is enough due to the strong liquor content.

We're looking forward to trying the Kahlua filled chocolates this weekend.

  1. I just tried the Baileys chocolate. The filling was okay (tasted somewhat like Baileys), but the chocolate was horrible. Like eating cocoa flavored chalk!

  2. That's disappointing. Like I said, the chocolate with the Jack Daniels was good, but not great. Then again, maybe the whiskey was just strong enough to make it seem better than it was.Thanks for commenting!
