Black Sesame-I love the texture of the black sesame. The crunch of the toasted sesame crust complements the velvety truffle inside perfectly.
Mousse-I'm always thrown off by Kee's mousse. I think fluffy airy mousse inside, but it's actually an 'aerated cream'. Still very enjoyable.
Lavender-I'd never had the lavender before. I wasn't able to taste much lavender at all, but that could easily be because of the state of my palate at the time (already had lunch and eaten some of the treats truck cupcake.)
Mint Mocha-Do we like mint and chocolate? Yes. Do we like mocha and chocolate? Yes. Do we like little coffee beans? Yes. There's even surprise whipped cream inside.
Thai Chili-I took a bite, let it melt for about 5 seconds, and boom! Hello, chili! How are you? Our mutual favorite of the bunch.
Chocolates from Kee's are a bit more expensive than drugstore fare, $2.35 for each chocolate and $2.45 for a macaron, but, in my opinion, completely worth it. I'd much rather have one of these chocolates than two candy bars. Kee Ling Tong uses ingredients of exceptional quality and it really comes through in each piece. I have yet to have one and think that it wasn't worth it. These are definitely some of the best chocolates in New York City.
