Cowgirl Chocolates Review & Giveaway!CLOSED


 
Have you heard of Cowgirl Chocolates yet?!?  

I had never heard of them and was looking for truffles online one nite and came across Cowgirl Chocolates and knew that I wanted to try them as I love Spicy Foods!

Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997.  

Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate.

In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania.

Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates.


I was given the chance to review the 1/3 pound Truffle Sampler~and it came wrapped so Cute! 

It had black ribbon around a beautiful red box with a little star in the middle and it contained all of the flavors that they carry. 

 

They have the most delicious blend of sweet and spicy chocolate and I was very impressed with the mixture of flavors. 

The Habenero Caramel was my favorite~as it is very smooth and creamy and then HOT! It was so good~as it has just the right amount of HOT!

The Ivory Orange was a neat combo too with the white chocolate. 

Oh~who am I kidding?!? I loved them ALL :-)

Some Facts About Cowgirl Chocolates~
They have won a total of 16 product awards and 2 packaging awards!
They are located in Moscow, Idaho
They have  featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and in the New
York Times and Toronto Star among others.
