The flavors I tried were:
- Peanut Butter Crunch
- Salted Caramel
- New York Cheesecake
From the outside, Becky’s Bites look like any regular truffle. However, unlike Lindt’s version, Becky’s Bites give off a more homemade look. The bites are individually portioned in mini colorful wrappers, helping to distinguish the different flavors. They consist of a hard dark chocolate shell with a creamy interior. There is supposedly a crunchy graham cracker layer somewhere in between but I was left searching. While these truffles are individually portioned, that didn’t stop me from devouring each flavor.
The interior is cream cheese based so it has a little bit of a tangy flavor. This is where the flavor is. It was a little difficult for me to distinguish between some of the different varieties, such as Salted Caramel and S’more, but the Peanut Butter Crunch bites clearly tasted like peanuts. One of the things I really liked about the interior was that since it’s soft it quickly covers your entire tongue and interior of your mouth, helping to really get the full taste of the filling. I also liked how the chocolate shell was pretty thick as opposed to just a thin layer of chocolate. You’ll always get points in my book for not skimping on the chocolate!
Becky’s Bites is still in its infancy. However, the company just successfully received enough funding to ramp up production in a commercial kitchen space and hopes of opening up a storefront or a dessert truck in the near future. With a cream cheese based filling covered in chocolate, I definitely didn’t mind eating a few of these (ok, a bunch of these). The chocolate hit the spot and the soft interior kept the flavors lingering in your mouth for a while. I do think some of the different varieties could have had a little more flavor differentiation between them and I couldn’t find the crunchy graham cracker layer anywhere, but I’m looking forward to seeing where Becky’s Bites ends up. Who knows, you may eventually see them in a dessert truck!
