Bring Vosges With You To Catching Fire
Here at Con Sweet Con we are fans of EVERYTHING! Two big things on our list happen to be chocolate and movies. So when we caught wind of Vosges Hunger Games Collection, well it’s pretty much a match made in heaven. Vosges creates chocolate masterpieces, these aren’t your typical candy store treats.
The Hunger Games collection is found in Vosges stores and online at their site. They sell separate themed bars for $7.50 each and have three character themed flavors available: President Snow, Effie & Katniss.
The President Snow bar features blood orange & tellicherry peppercorns caramel + 72% cacao dark chocolate.
The Effie bar features dried strawberries + candied violet flowers + 62% cacao dark chocolate.
The Katniss bar features apples that pierce uncured hickory smoked bacon + alderwood smoked sea salt + 44% cacao milk chocolate.
None of these really calling your name, well Vosges is Haut Chocolate so they know your diva self needs choices and that's not a bad thing. How about truffles? Is that more "you"? I can testify to the amazingness that is their Exotic Truffle line. Curry and chocolate changed me as a person. Not to mention the Wasabi truffle... earth to me. Back to the Hunger Games Truffle Collection.

What I love about this collection is the ability to split this set pretty much down the middle with a friend. Each truffle is offered twice in the collection so there will be no real life Hunger Games fighting over a flavor. Plus with flavors like Evergreen (Rosemary, Pink Peppercorn & White Chocolate) it's safer to make sure everyone is covered. So even though the Hunger Games Truffle Collection's $45 price tag may shock you at first, let's split that because I promise these are so luxurious 8 will be plenty.
Now let's really indulge... like Capitol style pinkies up! Never in my life have I ever seen something so indulgent. Only the likes of Vosges could think of such an event. Yes, an event. The Hunger Games Capitol Truffle Collection contains a menu of etiquette. You heard me. Along with 36 truffles, accoutrements, and recipes to serve an extravagant 18 course chocolate tasting. It includes ingredients such as matcha tea, gold leaf, and pearl dust to create Hunger Games drinks. I think the only word for this is "Amazing". The Hunger Games Capitol Truffle Collection Experience is $225. The Hunger Games Chocolate site includes a walk through of all 18 courses here.
Also check out the bars made by their sister brand, Wild Ophelia. With quite a smaller price tag, costing $4.99 each. The bars in this line are inspired by the 12 Districts. Each with their own unique flavor and they also feature a set of all 12 which will run you $65 comes in an pretty Catching Fire box and is plenty to share.
