These once unheard of figs have become so popular that our importer often has trouble keeping them in stock. They’re so good it makes me wonder why they didn’t become popular sooner. Tender, sweeter than usual parito figs are dried, filled with soft chocolate truffle cream and a hint of liqueur, then dipped in dark chocolate. They're as good as they sound, perhaps better, and beat your mall-bought chocolates any day.
