I don’t understand people who buy seedless raspberry jam. The best part about raspberry jam is the seeds. Sure, they get stuck in your teeth, but there’s something delightfully satisfying about crunching your way through a spoonful of jam. Erm, I mean a layer of jam. On toast. Yup.
Well, Seth Ellis Chocolatier sure knows how to impress a girl. Some raspberry truffles are light and bright, like summer in your mouth. Those are lovely, but the raspberry truffles from Seth Ellis mean business. It’s a deep, dark raspberry ganache. You almost feel like you should have to show proof of age before you eat it, it’s so deliciously grown up.
But the best part? It’s the shocking inclusion of raspberry seeds.
I know, it seems so obvious. It’s not all that novel a concept, but I can’t think of the last time I had a raspberry ganache that included the seeds. It’s like tipping your hat to the fact that yes, Virginia, this is a raspberry ganache.
Seth Ellis chocolates are available at select locations in the Denver/Boulder area, and that page will soon be updated to reflect the five NYC Whole Foods that now carries them. You can also buy them online through It’s Only Natural Gifts or through Foodzie.
