Comment:
I sent this specific item in June to a breast cancer patient. Obviously not feeling healthy and seldom hungry. But, she really enjoyed the flavors and enjoyed the reactions from family members that she shared them with.<br />This Halloween, I got a seasonal coffin box for my wife and daughter. The next time, I saw each of them they both commented on the flavor. As of yet, I have not been able to enjoy one. They ate them all!

Comment:
I ordered a small box of these after reading so many glowing reviews. The flavors they described - cherry cumin, sesame cayenne, and espresso with anise seed, to name just a few - certainly made me curious, and they were definitely worth trying. The weird ingredients really do work with chocolate. <br /><br />The main thing I didn't like was that most of the pieces had about the same texture: a flavored chocolate ganache with a thin chocolate shell. There's nothing wrong with this style, but it got a little monotonous after a while. The one exception was the caramel-based pieces, but again, the texture of these was about the same in all of them. <br /><br />Strangely, though, my favorite piece was the white mouse, which was made with dark chocolate, white chocolate, cinnamon and almonds - nothing very exotic. I took that as a sign that I might actually like the boring old traditional flavors better! <br /><br />So, in conclusion, these unusual chocolates are worth trying once, but I don't think I'll order them again. Since I only have two choices for whether I'd recommend them, I'll amend my answer here by mentioning that I would recommend them to SOME friends, depending on whether or not I'd ask them to try a new exotic restaurant with me.
