Affine: Truffle cheese - 2

J's comment > not bad; strong truffle flavor; slightly firm; omiyage / souvenir from a friend who just came back from Amsterdam (thx K!)

TrueBliss: Chocolate covered coconut - 2

J's comment > not bad; lots of coconut in the center and slightly chewy cause of that; chocolate and coconut flavors not particularly strong; the main draw of this sweet is the texture of the chewy coconut bits in the center; apparently available @ Costco

J's comment > not bad; very crisp almost too hard to crack your teeth on, but flavor intensive
