Musical Truffles: The Best Excuse To Eat Chocolate Ever!

The only thing we like more than haute couture is haut chocolat. Or rather, our favorite Soho high-end chocolatier, Vosges Haut Chocolat. The folks at the shop gave us the lowdown on their newest offering—an idea we think even Willy Wonka would steal. The stylish sweets in question? The new Groove Truffle collection, or, as we like to think of them, musical truffles, a pairing of the brand's addictive signature truffles with some even more addictive tunes. Tricked out in packaging designed by Marian Bantjes, the "Groove Box is a truly multi-sensory approach to America's genres of music. First, read about the era in question, then play the accompanying song while you eat the truffles made with a popular ingredient from the time frame. We finally have a legit excuse to inhale chocolates—c'mon, we're learning! While it's not in NYC yet (the drop-date is around late October), it's available online here now. Our favorite option is hands-down the blingin' Hip-Hop Truffle, white chocolate with Krug champagne and, yep, edible gold leaf.
