Truffle Shots, a delectable store in Essex, Connecticut, that is sure to appeal to anyone who loves sweets, was founded on a fascinating premise. If the best part of the truffle is the creamy center beneath the outer shell, then why not cut straight to the good stuff? From there, the idea was born to serve the ganache from the truffle in shot glasses. People would be able to enjoy the best part of the dessert, and do it with a spoon instead of having to deal with the usual sticky fingers. If everyone is looking for the perfect chocolate, with all of its pleasure inducing deliciousness, then Truffle Shots may have just found it. This is why William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to introduce this amazing business in our latest episode of Best Address.
In the video, host Ana Berry discusses the inspiration for Truffle Shots with co-owner Lauren Athay, and samples many of the store’s over 30 fabulous flavors, which range from spicy to sweet. Some of these include the chipotle cinnamon with milk chocolate and Mexican vanilla, the Flowers of Sicily with its citrus flavor combined with floral white and dark chocolates, the bergamot white chocolate folded into dark chocolate, and the fig balsamico with its fruity overtones. Athay also points to the bourbon vanilla with its tasty caramel notes as a particular favorite. All of the truffle shots are made fresh with the best available ingredients, and absolutely no preservatives are ever included. Since they aren’t made with alcohol either, anyone from the community can indulge in these decadent delights. They can be offered at dinner parties or weddings, and they can make excellent gifts, for others and especially for oneself.
