 Truth In Truffles

Bartons chocolate founded 1898 on truffle package   Bartons is a old-line manufacturer of fine chocolates.  They say so themselves.
Bartons Heavenly Dark Truffles package, unopened   I found this package of "Heavenly Dark" truffles for sale at a local chocolate shop.  Looked like a good deal for $2.99.  A new product from a brand I've liked since childhood.

I looked through the little window at the festive confections, issued an involuntary "Yum!", and bought two packages, truffles untasted.

Sigh.

(Back to the Storm soon.  I just had to notify the world of this truffle tragedy.)
