Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Portland, Ore.-based Moonstruck Chocolate Co. anticipates the 2012 election season with its whimsical chocolate truffles in the shapes of the country’s iconic political mascots, an elephant and a donkey. Both truffle mascots feature dark chocolate ganache hand-formed into an adorable donkey or elephant and enrobed in naturally colored and hand-decorated grey ivory chocolate. A box of four truffles is available for a suggested retail price of $15. The truffles are also available for bulk purchase at $3.75 a piece.
“We love to design whimsical chocolate critters at Moonstruck and are excited for the 2012 election season to showcase our handcrafted donkey and elephant truffles,” says Moonstruck master chocolatier Julian Rose. “We are making a bold flavor statement by using extra bittersweet dark chocolate for both of the truffle designs.”
Election Collection ‘12 is available at all five Moonstruck Chocolate Cafés in Portland, Ore., at select retailers and fine grocers nationwide and at http://www.moonstruckchocolate.com.
