Ambrosia Candies Pumpkin Truffle Review and Giveaway

 Fall is almost here, leaves are starting to turn colors, the temperature is dropping, and I'm getting super excited about Pumpkin Desserts and Candies! 

Let me introduce to you a wonderful Etsy Shop, Melissa owner/confectioner of Ambrosia Candies . She makes "made to order" hand crafted confections in a fully licensed kitchen.

She was gracious enough to send me some of her "Pumpkin Juice Cake Truffles" to sample for this Review and Giveaway!

Let me tell you , they were DELICIOUS! My oldest daughter loves anything pumpkin and these definitely tickled her tastebuds, take a look for yourself (see photos below and VIDEO!), she is smiling from ear to ear.

Melissa packaged her truffles very carefully. They came in a food-safe labelled bag, and it was protected in a box with recycled shredded newspaper, which is so smart and caring for the earth! Why use wasteful packaging when you can simply recycle your newspaper by repurposing it as packaging material.  It's also serves as a mild insulator to help keep things either cold or hot.

A little bit of information about Melissa:

For many years as a child I watched in wonder as my grandmother poured hot bubbly candy and worked her magic. Every batch intrigued me. The smell entranced me...I had to know, had to learn her trade. Ambrosia Candies was formed to give people something wholesome and good that goes back to the basics...the natural and homemade. Every piece is personally hand pulled, hand cut, hand crafted and each piece is created as though it were meant for the Makers lips.  Everything that comes from my hands is unique in its taste, texture or appearance. My business is run on Quality not quantity. Each item is produced in small batches and made to order to ensure the freshest products possible.

My mission is to create a memorable experience with you and keep you as a captivated, charmed and fulfilled frequenter of my company. I say these things with dignity, knowing that I am giving you a gourmet taste...with my homemade touch.
Look how beautiful they look!  They smelled and tasted even better!


The inside of the truffle was a silky smooth filling, it just melted into our mouths!

My daughters trying them out for the first time!

My oldest daughter's reaction to her first bite, she fell in love! 
Glad it was to a truffle and not a boy! :)

A very happy girl after craving pumpkin cookies for months! 
She said these were better then chocolate!

AND just in case you don't believe my pictures as too how incredibly happy she was about eating
these delicious pumpkin truffles, here's a little video of her eating her
very last bite of her pumpkin truffle.
