#CrazyCupsCoffee: Chocolate Raspberry Truffle

 #CrazyCupsCoffee #TasteHappiness #Ambassador


This month's Crazy Cups flavor is Chocolate Raspberry Truffle and I knew immediately that it was going to be impressively delicious, as all Crazy Cups flavors are. 

Immediately upon brewing my senses took me back to the last time I had homemade raspberry brownies. This medium roast coffee smelled exactly how those brownies did when they were fresh out of the oven. The taste? Ohhhh the taste!!




It was like biting into a fresh, hot homemade raspberry chocolate brownie. EXACTLY like it. Well, maybe not exactly like it as the coffee is zero calories and I don't even want to think about how many calories are in those brownies. That's the beauty of all Crazy Cups flavors. You get the wonderful taste of your favorite desserts and sweets without all the calories. And obviously with the addition of the "mommy's little helper" that is caffeine. 


If you wish to experience the combination of tangy raspberries and smooth, sweet chocolate, you can purchase these in a 22ct box as well as a sample size 4ct box at http://crazycups.com

You should also follow Crazy Cups on FACEBOOK and TWITTER because I know they are constantly coming out with new flavors and you don't want to miss it!
