Trail Truffles’ “chocolate” shell not only delivers a rich, dark chocolate flavor, but is also non-melting and withstands extreme conditions quite well (but unlike Icarus, don’t fly too close to the sun otherwise your Truffles will become too smushy-mushy)
Because these Truffles are bite-sized balls of goodness, you can eat as few or as many as you want; no more will you be burdened with half-eaten bars asking to go stale at the bottom of your bag or in your car; our zippered pouch allows for easy access whenever you need to get a Truffle fix
Throw a bag (or two) of Truffles into your backpack for an easy access, on-the-go fuel for as short or as long as you’re on the trail; these Truffles travel extremely well (and actually want to go places, so take ‘em along)
Raw Cacao Powder
Besides being the basis for our rich, chocolate shell for the Trail Truffles, raw organic cacao powder has a multitude of health benefits:
- Cacao contains more antioxidants per cup than wine or tea
- Cacao is rich in flavonoids which can support heart health by reducing blood pressure and relaxing blood vessels
- Cacao is a natural mood booster because it stimulates the release of endorphins and serotonin in the brain
- Cacao is one of the richest food sources of magnesium, which aids over 300 chemical reactions in the body
The only added sweetener in Trail Truffles—besides the natural sugars found in the dates—is Coconut Nectar. It not only has a naturally rich and sweet caramel flavor, but also has all the following amazing attributes:
- Contains all essential amino acids
- Low glycemic index, does not cause blood sugar spikes
- Rich source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals
- Has beneficial living enzymes as a raw sugar
- Is a whole food and unrefined sweetener
- Not chemically treated or processed
- Contains no additives or preservatives
- And did we mention it tastes amazing?
Though "tropical oils" such as coconut oil have gotten a bad rap in the past, in reality, the health benefits of coconut oil—in moderation—make it one of the better oils that we can consume, especially for those who exercise or need relatively quick energy due to being a medium chain fatty acid. In technical terms, coconut oil es muy muy bueno as a fuel source.
Also, coconut oil helps with general satiety (feeling full, yo!). So, eating a few Trail Truffles as a mid-day snack or post-dinner dessert will help keep you content, while satisfying your sweet tooth.
Dates & Nuts
We keep it simple at Trail Truffles and don’t source ingredients that are impossible to pronounce—nature has given us tasty and wholesome dates / nuts to provide an optimal mix of carbs, proteins, and fats. With a little magic from the Trail Truffle factory, we are able to transform these ingredients into decadent truffles. Hard to believe, but true!
Ancient Sea Salt
Trail Truffles use only the best products nature has to offer and this includes the salt we use to provide the savory contrast with the sweet. We use ancient sea salt, which is unrefined and full of natural minerals and flavor (60 trace minerals in fact).
Trail Truffles are designed to achieve the perfect balance of chocolate shell with the inner “truffle cream”—we wanted to make sure the filling is the star of the show, while also ensuring the chocolate provides the experience of eating a truffle.
The Trail Truffle “cream” is the most nutritious—yet indulgent—filling you may have ever tasted. Chock full of protein, minerals and enzymes from nature’s superfoods, we have ensured that this truffle cream can be consumed guilt free.
Our “enrobing” process for Trail Truffles results in a rich, dark chocolate shell that is not only trail ready, but is also decadent and sinfully delicious.
Light covering of our proprietary Trail Truffle coating not only keeps the truffles from sticking, but also enhances the taste and “mouth feel” of nature’s goodness.
