These once unheard of figs have become so popular that we often have trouble keeping them in stock. They’re so good it makes me wonder why they didn’t become popular sooner.
Tender, sweeter than usual Calabacita figs are sun 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.
The figs themselves are luscious, rich, and full-bodied with a gentle sweetness. Their scent has just a hint of the liqueur in the filling. The flavor it imparts is subtle, though it adds another layer of richness without being noticeably alcoholic. The outer layer of chocolate is soft and also very deep, and collaborates deliciously with the fruit. Together, the flavors and textures of these figs are succulent and lush.
If by some miracle you manage to not gobble all the figs up in a few days, they'll last for months.
