Ahh...the holidays are approaching. One of the many benefits, other than eating like a hog, is lots of seasonal items available in stores. I am reviewing a seasonal item, which I missed last year, from Trader Joe's: Rabitos Royale. Rabitos Royale is chocolate and brandy truffle filled figs. Translation: a fig stuffed with brandy flavored chocolate truffle and covered in chocolate. Sounds ridiculous, I know. And it is. This seasonal chocolate item sounds so unique, it will trigger most people's curiosity.
As you opened the package, you can immediately smell the brandy, which is so alluring and mesmerizing. When you bite into the figs, you get the creamy smooth truffle fillings against the soft yet chewy dried figs. The contrast in texture was an interesting experience, and combined with the rich chocolate flavor and sensual brandy, it brings the chocolate experience to a whole new level.
I give it a 8 out of 10.
