Eat with your Eyes: Jose Cuervo

Today’s candy is Turin Jose Cuervo Filled Chocolates. I have this problem that whenever I go to trade shows I tend to pick up one or two of these liquor filled chocolates from Turin. I bring them home and take their picture ... and then I eat them. And you never get the full story.

Now at least you get part of the story. The oozy, gooey part. Yes, each dome of chocolate is filled with a liquor infused syrup.

Turin’s line of liquor filled chocolates comes in a bar format as well, but I think I prefer the ratio of liquor syrup to chocolate on these. I prefer the Jack Daniels to Jose Cuervo and the Gran Marnier is flavorful but very sweet.

Eat with your Eyes is a recurring feature where I just show you stuff I’ve photographed but probably won’t get around to reviewing, but feel free to share your reviews here of the candy if you’ve had it.

  1. I’ve just been reading about big legal battles over this kind of candy in the early 1900s, liquor abolitionists were worried the kiddies would get their jollies on liquor-filled bon bons. Of course, then as now, at the prices these morsels command, it’s hard to imagine this being a problem of sending the children down the path of vice!
