- Key Lime: “White chocolate ganache infused with fresh lime juice.” Tasting notes: White chocolate shell with a pretty decoration stamped on top. Shell a little thicker than standard, not very sweet, lacking that “white chocolate” flavor. Ganache inside was not very smooth, an almost gritty consistency. It did have a decent lime flavor to it. Didn’t really enjoy this.
- Peanut Butter Crunch: “Milk chocolate and peanut butter with bits of peanut brittle”. Tasting notes: Milk chocolate shell, peanut butter filling, pretty design stamped on top. Really lovely honey roasted peanut flavor, nice crunch from the bits of peanuts in the filling. Like a sophisticated peanut butter cup!
- Berries & Pistachio Bar. Tasting notes: Plain white chocolate bar topped with assorted whole dried fruits and pistachio chunks. Fairly sweet decently creamy white chocolate. Dried blueberries had a nice texture and flavor, but the flavor was lost with all the sweet white chocolate. Perhaps enjoyable if you like white chocolate bars.

William Dean Chocolates
William Dean is not a local chocolatier, but they were at the SF Chocolate Salon, so I got to try a few of their products, including both truffles and bars.
