Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Belgian Mousse Truffles
Annoyance aside, I was intrigued by the flavours of these mousses: Dark chocolate with Raspberry, Milk Chocolate with Lemon, Milk Chocolate with Passion Fruit and Dark chocolate with Ginger.
I've always assumed that "mousse" was just another marketing word for praline or truffle (I've certainly eaten plenty of chocolates described as "mousses" that were in fact truffles), but these chocolates surprised me because they had real mousse centres that were very light and er... mousse-y. I was a bit disappointed to be honest because they seemed so light and insubstantial; I would have preferred something more dense and buttery.

These chocolates were okay, but I wasn't overly impressed. I liked two out of the four flavours but felt the mousse centres were a bit insubstantial.
I would recommend them if you like light chocolates though. They would make a nice Valentines side-gift and I'm sure many people will enjoy them.
