Trail Truffles are the combination of an indulgent treat with nature’s wholesome goodness. Imagine a bourgeoisie mated with a granola hipster—Trail Truffles would be their decadent offspring (without any of the pretense).
Trail Truffles are designed to be rugged, portable, and non-melting, while also utilizing nothing but the best of nature’s wholesome ingredients—this is where the “Trail” comes in.
Though trail food has improved over the years, there is still a lack of indulgent treats that are trail ready and wholesome; thus, we set out to make a trail-worthy truffle that also meets the criteria of a decadent treat (that you don’t need to feel guilty eating).
Trail Truffles use nature’s simplest and tastiest ingredients with no other additives, preservatives, or unpronounceable elements; most truffles have no more than 7-8 ingredients.
Because Trail Truffles use organic extra virgin coconut oil—which is naturally high in antioxidants and doesn’t spoil easily—these Truffles do not require the preservatives you’d find in other “nutritional products”.
The recommended serving is three Truffles (36 grams) which ranges from 140 – 150 calories total. So you don’t have to whip out your calculator, we’ll do the math for you: that translates to 45 – 50 calories per Truffle.
A traditional chocolate truffle ranges from 65 – 70 calories, so Trail Truffles not only have ~20% fewer calories, but they’re chock full of wholesome goodness (and we think they taste better anyway).
We’ve formulated Trail Truffles to have an optimal blend of carbohydrates (raw energy for the body), fats (energy + satiety), and protein (muscles and who doesn’t love protein?) for sustained energy.
Trail Truffles are not a “protein heavy” product, but provide the “fullness” benefits that protein provides as well as providing quick-burn and sustained energy on your adventure (or to get you through that afternoon meeting at work).
— Peanut Butter Cup: We all know the union of chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in heaven, but what makes these Truffles unique is you can have your Peanut Butter Cup and eat it too.
— Chocolate Hazelnut: The nutty goodness of hazelnuts combined with rich cacao results in a podium-worthy Truffle, which consequently may help you reach the podium at your next event.
— Mint Creme: Eat a few Mint Creme Truffles and you'll be transported to the peak of a snow-capped mountain—or perhaps you're already traversing the Alps and the Truffles are fueling your adventure.
— Coconut Macadamia: Tie up a hammock, kick off your sandals, and enjoy the tropical life with a few Coconut Macadamia Truffles. Please note: beach not included, but you'll feel like you're there anyway.
And have no fear, we’re always tinkering around in our Truffle Lab to bring new flavors for you to enjoy, so stay tuned.
Because Trail Truffles use nature’s simple ingredients, the shelf life is quite good—expect them to be good for around a year. To make it easy on you, though, each pouch has a printed “Better by” date on the top tear notch.
We do recommend that after opening the pouch you consume your Truffles within a week or so (like they’ll even last that long) for freshness. The Truffles will last much longer, though, and will persist quite well through a zombie apocalypse.
Like the blue moon, every so often an order may not meet your expectations; if this is the case, please send an email to email@example.com and we’ll work to make it better—via an exchange, replacement, or refund.
