Daring Godiva introduces cube-shaped truffles
Premium Belgian chocolatier Godiva has unveiled its new cube-shaped truffles which will be unveiled in travel retail at the TFWA World Exhibition (Stand number: Yellow Village F33).
Godiva’s Cube Truffles are described as an indulgent, multi-layered taste experience.
Chef Ilse Wilmots explains how she blended this proud heritage with her own passion and creativity in the new collection: “The tradition of crafting exceptional Belgian truffles is in Godiva’s DNA. This expertise is the foundation of Cube Truffles, but we have expanded on that by playing with exciting new tastes, shapes and textures.”
The truffles boast four layers of flavors and surprising textures. Each of the cube-shaped morsels is filled with dual-layered ganache or praliné filling, encased in a crisp chocolate shell and finished with a dusting of cocoa powder, a sprinkle of chocolate or crunchy nut shavings.
Popular flavors such as intense dark chocolate and smooth milk chocolate complement more contemporary flavors such as fruity cassis and earthy matcha. Each piece is crafted from ingredients such as Marcona almond, Piedmont hazelnut and Madagascan vanilla.
Chef Wilmots drew inspiration from the bite-sized confectionery ‘petit four’, as well as art and creativity beyond the realms of chocolate and dessert. “My ultimate goal was to satisfy every chocolate lover’s desire. Whether you prefer fruit, nut, chocolate, caramel, vanilla or tea, there is a piece in Cube Truffles to tantalise your taste buds,” she said.
Packaged in a luxurious gift box bearing truffle illustrations, Cube Truffles is designed to be a gift for special occasions.
