Millie's Place 1/2 lb of Exquisite Truffles Giveaway ***CLOSED***

Millies Place is a fabulous Etsy shop that sells truffles, cookies, cupcakes, fudge, whoopie pies.
(She also has gluten & wheat free products and some low fat options.)
214 Etsy users call Millies Place a favorite!
She has 100% positive feedback and is located in Middleton, New Hampshire.
She uses only quality ingredients such as butter not margarine & real vanilla.
PLUS - she has even got low fat chocolate chip cookies!
Most of her stuff is under 10$ so its very affordable.

My initial thoughts;
Packaging was awesome! All the ingredients were labeled as to what was inside of each truffle.

She sent me Cookie Dough truffles with chocolate chips, Coconut Cookie Dough truffles, Butterscotch Gingerbread cake bite truffles, Lemon Pudding cake truffles, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough truffles, Ginger Whoopie pie, Mocha Pudding Cake truffles, and Boston Creme Pie truffles.


What I thought about the truffles -


Cookie Dough truffles with chocolate chips.


Tastes JUST like choc chip cookie dough. The walnuts were very crisp and gave it the crunchy feel that I like to candy. I go nuts for candy with nuts!


Butterscotch Gingerbread Cake Bite truffles


BUTTERSCOTCH- need I say more? The truffles center was extremely soft and very light notes of gingerbread.. reminded me of carrot cake.


Peanut Butter Cookie Dough truffles


Light taste of peanut butter, crunchy yummy goodness.


Mocha Pudding Cake truffles


The inside tastes like a moist chocolate cake and the coating is semi-sweet ( I could really taste strong mocha )... its rather good!
Gigi (my 5 year old) says, "It tastes like fudge and its really yummy!"



Boston Creme Pie truffles


I think I just found my fave! It tastes exactly like boston creme pie!
Gigi says - "I can taste the vanilla. I like that its kinda salty sweet."



Ginger Whoopie Pie


This thing- I took a bite and the ginger was strong, so I gave it to my little girl and foolishly thought she would not like it.. WRONG! She loved it. It tasted to me like a gingerbread cookie, only VERY VERY moist and soft. It had a creamy sweet filling in the middle.


Lemon Pudding Cake truffles


Reminded me of a lemon meringue pie - I like the tartness of the lemon. It reminds me of those lemon creme pies you get at mom and pop diners.... its VERY delicious.
Gigi says, "tastes like a sweet lemon!"



Coconut Cookie Dough truffles


The coconut is heavy and that's good. I love coconut- its very chewy and I don't taste much of a cake flavor per-say, but thats really no matter becasue i enjoyed it thouroughly.
Gigi says, "Reminds me of an island-y coconut drink."


Pros:
Bite size so you can treat yourself without over indulging- satisfies sweet cravings.


Cons:
No caloric content, which is important to me because I am dieting.
My only real complaint? I wish shed would've sent some fudge! (Peanut butter fudge with walnuts!!!! ) or some homemade chocolate cookie sandwiches w peanut butter filling. I might just have to buy some! :)


If you do purchase, be sure to tell her Locomotions of Expressions sent you!
