There’s no shortage of chocolate mint products so I wasn’t overly excited to try these Utah Truffles Mint Milk Chocolate Truffles from Costco. Even though these chocolates don’t seem dramatically different from other mint chocolates I’ve had before, I think they’re my new favorite. What is it about them that sets them apart from other similar options out there?
The Christmas season is just around the corner and I love seeing what kind of chocolates Costco brings in this year. These Costco Utah Truffles Mint Milk Chocolate Truffles are new to my local store so I picked them up to review.
Other chocolates from Costco I absolutely love are the Anthon Berg Liquor Filled Dark Chocolates, Lindt Lindor Assorted Chocolates, Gudrun Fine Belgian Chocolates, Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters, Sander’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, Truffettes De France Peppermint White Chocolate Bites, Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles and the Hawaiian Sun Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts.
Location in Store
You can find the mint milk chocolate truffles in the snack section at Costco, near the front of the store. The item number is 1158688.
These truffles are the perfect combination of silky milk chocolate and mellow cool mint. They’re absolutely delicious and melt in your mouth. The chocolate is extra creamy and not too sweet. The mint flavor is noticeable but not too strong.
I can’t say mint and milk chocolate is my favorite flavor combination but I really love these truffles and will happily finish my bag. I actually crave them.
The 454-gram bag costs $12.89 Canadian at Costco. I think the price is very reasonable and wouldn’t hesitate to buy another bag at the same price.
Each truffle is individually wrapped which I love because I can easily throw a few in my diaper bag or purse! It’s also great for portion control because I’m not just able to dip my hand in the bag and eat a bunch. I have to consciously unwrap them.
The best-before date is about 11 months from the date I purchased the chocolates. I recommend storing them in a cool, dry place. I would be thrilled to receive these chocolates as a gift and I think your family member or friend would also appreciate them!
Three truffles contain 240 calories, 18 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 20 grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 25 milligrams of sodium. That means one truffle is 80 calories and six grams of fat.
The ingredients are pretty typical for chocolate, the truffles contain milk and soy and may contain wheat, peanuts and tree nuts.
These are probably my favorite mint chocolates I’ve tried and I hope Costco brings some other varieties from the same company to the store!
