Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in
1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has
a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In
fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in
Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories
with some new ideas to create an American original,
Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 16 product awards
and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho
USA. It has also been featured on the Food Network
on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and in the New
York Times and Toronto Star among others.
Marilyn, the "head cowgirl" at Cowgirl Chocolates, generously provided me with a Cowgirl Signature 1/4 Pound Truffle Box in a Spicy and Mild Mix. The chocolates were delicious! My family and I sat around the dining room table after dinner one night sampling the chocolates to see which were our favorites and if they were truly spicy. Well the spicy ones were certainly spicy. It's a very interesting flavor. They taste like regular chocolate and have a spicy kick after-taste. The mild ones were mild and had a very enjoyable flavor without burning your mouth! My favorite would have to be the Mild Raspberry lemonade dark chocolate. MMMMMM! You can check out all their flavors here.
