Intrigue Chocolates Co.

I was reading my Saint John’s University Alumni Magazine recently. In it was an article featuring several undergraduate alumni who are now in the food and beverage business in one way or another.  One entrepreneur featured was Aaron Barthel of Intrigue Chocolates Co., a native of Minnesota, now living and working in Seattle, Washington.

Being a fellow Johnnie, and a chocoholic, of course I had to write and say hello. He was very gracious and sent me a box of his truffles, crafted in the French tradition as his website says.

Arriving in the mail was a lovely silver tin of 12 truffles including two each of Ruby Port, Saint Basil, Jamaican HOT chocolate, Pomegranate, Clove, and Tannenbaum.  All were enjoyable, but I especially liked the Saint Basil with it’s sweet, clean taste of late summer, the Pomegranate which was tart and crisp and the Jamaican HOT chocolate with its sweet taste of honey and spicy hot finish.
