Chocolate of Choice: Teuscher Champagne Truffles

Grad student Echu says Teuscher's champagne truffles are too tempting

Chocolate of Choice Teuscher Champagne Truffles

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.

For months, I have been fighting the urge to take a peek inside the Teuscher Swiss Chocolate store nestled in the basement of one of the brick-wall buildings along Newbury Street. I knew that once I step in, I would end up indulging in my favorite impulse item – Chocolate Truffles. True enough, it was when I walked in that I realized that I am just as human as everybody else. Cursing under my breath, I pointed at the $6, 2-truffle box and impatiently anticipated the delight that was to follow.

Truffle by truffle, I let myself forget the calories, sugar and saturated fat, and revel in the fulfilling comfort that came with the sin I was committing. I allowed my tongue to bask in my memory of these tiny pieces of heaven. They were exactly how I remembered them – delicately sweet and leaving you wanting more.  

As the emptied box made its way to the trash 15 minutes and 2 pounds later, I sulked in guilt and vowed never to give in again. But then, we all know what will happen next, don't we?
