They have become an anticipated and appreciated gift. The supplier has always delivered the truffles promptly. They are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and an excellent value. I would highly recommend them for someone seeking a gift for a chocolate lover.

254523254523B001JDQ4Q6A1FPLGZ0Y5G0WXStephanie S. Pavlat0051326067200Best Truffles on the planet!These are the best truffles on the planet. They melt in your mouth. I would order from this company again.

254525254525B001JDQ4Q6A3SW8KWRQY16ZTLissa0051325462400DEEEEEEELISH!These chocolates are the best truffles I have ever had in my life. When you put them in your mouth you taste the cocoa powder immediately, but once they are warmed up in your mouth they melt and are like a chocolate paradise. I normally hate Belgian chocolates, but these are like no other. I wish they were more available at times other than the holidays, but I suppose that's why I usually find them sold as sets of 3. Makes a great stocking stuffer or gift for a co-worker!
254526254526B001JDQ4Q6A1SGZ5H55SD99WRobyn "LadyTypesALot"0051324252800Delicious Cocoa Dusted Belgian TrufflesWe received a box of truffles as a gift and I just had to have more. If you are a chocoholic, like I am, you are gonna love these truffles. Ordered on Friday and received on Monday ~ AWESOME!
254527254527B001JDQ4Q6A1G2SEUX4IXF5IBrenda L. Teman1251271635200Best everSimply the best chocolate you will ever put in your mouth. Very smooth and every woman's dream for that chocolate fix.
254528254528B001JDQ4Q6APM3A6CD0Z8FHPaulette Baehman1251266192000Awesome ChocolateMy husband received a pound of the Donckels Belgian Chocolates for a Christmas gift. He wasn't too excited about it and waited until about a week after Christmas to open the box. And then ... he said, "OMG you just have to try these." We rationed them, otherwise we would have eaten the whole box in one night. As the box began to empty, fear of withdrawals started. I did a search and found them at Amazon.com and at the best price on the Internet. Bought 6 pounds. Hope it lasts until next Christmas. One pound is gone already. Darn!
254529254529B001JDQ4Q6A1IFM1X697DMVFN. E Smith1251260230400bestBest truffles I have ever tasted! Only available on Amazon during the holiday season
254530254530B001JDQ4Q6A1H0P2ONQ09X1OStephen G. Paradis0111327622400No gift card enclosedI sent this item to a friend as a gift. I composed a gift card to be sent with it. I did not hear from my friend that the truffles were received. I tracked the shipping and found they had been delivered to their porch. The truffle company had not sent the gift card along so my friend had no idea who had sent the chocolates. She called members of her family to ask them if they had sent her a gift. Embarrassing! And then I had to phone her to see if she had received the chocolates!!! This took time, frustration and ruined the gift moment entirely. ThisDonchels Cocoa Dusted Belgian Truffles - 48oz company had failed in a very fundamental way.

254532254532B001JDQ4Q6A28CX3FE9O3RQIPatty1511292371200These Are Not Donckel's TrufflesWe thought we were buying Donckel Belgian Truffles and instead we got Truffettes de France which are not nearly as good. The truffettes have 5 mg of cholestrol while the Donckels have none. The Donckels have a very light texture and melt in your mouth while the Truffettes are heavy more like a fudge than a truffle. I believe that the Truffettes manufacturer is preying on buyers like me by closely imitating their packaging. WE thought we were buying one product and got something else. The products are not even close inflavor or texture.
254533254533B000R923TUA36614H8BSX4B1Lee the reader262651255305600Packed in Puree is what You Want to SeeAfter moving to the South from the Northeast, finding good products to cook food from my Italian heritage has been hard. I haven't been able to find a substitute for my beloved Redpack tomatoes. We buy those by the box up North, but that company doesn't distribute in the South. After some research I found the label difference was "packed in Puree".

Most other brands are packed in tomato juice, and that makes a watery, inferior sauce. "Purea di Pomodoro" - that's what I want to see! But when I saw this brand, I saw the magic words and gave it a try. In fact, last night I cooked up a big pot of sauce and brought it over to my Southern neighbors, and it was a hit!

It short, this Brooklyn born Southerner recommends this product, especially to those who are out of the area of the usual Northeastern brands. I just wish Amazon would put this on their subscribe and save - I use four cans each time I make a pot so getting this regularly to my door would be great.
254534254534B000R923TUA25NXH7CGEYJ7QProv 31 girl131351288828800Fabulous flavor and textureI am a passionate home cook and have been canning my own tomatoes since I was a child. American canned tomatoes all contain a "firming agent" that prevents the tomatoes from turning to mush in the can. This agent also prevents them from breaking down nicely in a sauce, too! Thus, I always can my own. However, I will no longer be using my own tomatoes in pasta sauces after trying these Italian tomatoes. These tomatoes are rich, meaty and are packed in a thick sauce. They look and taste fabulous, and make an amazing pasta sauce! My husband and I kept "mmm-ing" as we ate the first sauce I made with these. I love the fact that they have no additives of any kind - no firming agents, no herbs/spices, not even any salt. You have complete control over how you season your dishes. I'm soooo glad I bought a whole case of these, and hope I will always be able to access them. The case price brings them down to well below supermarket prices for Italian tomatoes. I couldn't care less that they are not DOP San Marzanos, just like I couldn't care less that my champagne doesn't come from France! These tomatoes are the same as San Marzanos, without the special government label of tomatoes that come from a small geographic area in Italy. American or home canned tomatoes are great for soups and stews, but no more American tomatoes for my pasta sauces! I encourage everyone to give them a try.
254535254535B000R923TUAO9BTZ19KR507JosieO111151251417600makes some excellent pizza!I bought these for our weekly grilled pizza night. We just smash up the tomatoes and use them for our sauce, no spices or anything! My toddler and preschooler can't get enough, and I've given cans as parts of pizza kits to friends and family. They are a huge hit around here. It's not necessary to spend money on the certified pricier San Marzanos, in my humble opinion.
254536254536B000R923TUA1KSSF8RQYKL9Kdeebum25 "deebum"8841237766400absolutely a wonderful productI understand that these aren't organic tomatoes but the difference from the watery, thin horrible canned tomatoes one finds in the States is absolutely amazing. When I opened the first can I was actually startled to smell real tomatoes! They've worked out fine and been a wonderful addition to many dishes and that's saying something from a woman who's been all over Italy and eaten the best!
254537254537B000R923TUAVWDMCKI3S96JNicolle6651320883200YUM! Delicious sauce.These tomatoes are so delicious - good price but miles above the flavor of other store brand tomatoes. I don't know if they are 'officially' certified or not but I thought they were really good, as did my Sicilian husband. I noticed other reviewers had problems with badly dented cans. I had about 4 of them somewhat dented, but not badly enough to worry me. I can see where they could've been much worse depending on the shipper/delivery person (gotta love it when "this side down" is the side that's upright and sideways on your porch). I used them for a new "Sunday Gravy" Sicilian/Italian recipe I tried that simmered for about 16 hours, and it turned out very well. It wouldn't have been the same with regular canned tomatoes. One bit of advice, don't toss the puree! If you don't need that much liquid either save it for later, or simmer your sauce down until thick enough so you don't lose it.
254538254538B000R923TUA3UGTTAH2BLSOQJoan M. Elisha5551255564800Tasty tomatoes!I am very particular about the type of tomatoes I will use for my sauce. The recipe I use came from my mother in law, who was born and raised in Northern Italy. Believe me, the tomatoes are important. These are about half the price I pay in the grocery store for similar items, provided I can find them in the first place! I would definitely recommend these to a friend.
254539254539B000R923TUA1EWA0J115U80RSteven M. Sandler "sms"5551250985600these are 5 star for sure....nothing less is fairWe have an authentic pizza oven at home and make pizza regularly, in true VPN style. The first time I opened a can of these tomatoes, I could not believe these are the same thing that we call tomatoes! I use these exclusively on my pizza's as well as for almost all of my sauce recipes. I do not believe there is a better product out there and at Amazon, they are a great price.

I LOVE these tomatoes!! My entire family LOVES these tomatoes!!
254540254540B000R923TUA39IDT7DRTFLD9Ole4441333324800I like 'em!I would have given them five stars but for the handful of seriously dented cans. That bothers me a little, but I'm using those cans first. The tomatoes themselves are pretty good. For our first taste, we drained one, crushed the tomatoes by hand, and used the crushed pulp for a flatbread base. Topped with sauteed garlic, prosciutto, fresh mozz and some fresh basil, I have to say it was pretty darn tasty. We didn't do a side-by-side, but I'd say these were just as good as the "certified" San Marzanos we've had, and about $3.00 less per can. I'd also say they were far better than the Hunt's whole peeled tomatoes, and only about $0.60 more per can.
254541254541B000R923TUA16U1S840GDO94FrancescoB4451330819200So glad I found Carmelina Tomatoes!I discovered the sweet taste of Carmelina San Marzanos at a local pizzeria!
The flavor of the tomato impressed me so much I knew I wanted them to use
on my own wood-fired pizza. I asked the manager what brand tomato he was
using and he told me! As soon as I got home I googled Carmelina and ordered
a case from Amazon.com! These tomatoes are simply the best and I just hope
Amazon will continue to carry and ship Free!
254542254542B000R923TUA2Z5CJRQA1IZHJLuca4451313020800Wonderful product at a spectacular price.I love these tomatoes. They are perfect Italian tomatoes from the beautiful area around Mt. Vesuvius. The soil and climate make these tomatoes so much better than any American canned tomatoes. I just prepared the recipe for Pappa Al Pomorodo (Tomato Soup) found on the Carmelina website and it was like being back in Italy. When I poured the product out of the can, I could see and smeall the difference. The tomatoes were in a thick red puree and the soup quickly came together because these tomatoes do not have chemicals to keep them firm. These tomatoes are so good, that I returned to Amazon and got on the autoship list. I never want to be out of these tomatoes.

254543254543B000R923TUA1ZZBAHWGTNMADC. Thomas "Straight to the Point In Colorado"4451271635200Not your average canned tomatoWe were watching some cooking show when we heard about these tomatoes for the first time about a year ago. We found a "certified" brand at a nearby Wholefoods shortly thereafter but they were not available on a regular basis and we were absolutely hooked after having used them in several recipes. You notice this as soon as you open the can. It's like having a handful of freshly picked tomatoes in your hands. And the taste is amazing.

Although these are not D.O.P. certified they are by far an excellent tomato and for the price an even better buy in comparison to what we can buy locally.

We love Love LOVE these tomatoes. I am only sorry that they are not available on a subscribe and save basis.
254544254544B000R923TUA3IDQJO9DL3NIG. L. Martin-Johnson6751247184000OM NOM NOM NOM!The tomatoes are wonderful, not acidic and watery. The bonus of being canned in puree makes it easy to put together a nice thick sauce.

Also, props to Amazon.com, as my first order arrived with most cans dented. I contacted customer service, and they replaced the case immediately, no extra charges. Definitely worth ordering, for the taste and the no-problems customer service.
254545254545B000R923TUA1N7UCTFLBFQJ0Serving Him "HIS kid"3351340236800italian_girlThese are absolutely the best canned tomatoes I've ever cooked with. There are no seeds!! The tomato flavor is rich and low in acidity. I just pour into a bowl and squish with my hands before I make sauce. I especially like the fact they don't add basil to them. If I can't have my own home grown, these are second best!!
254546254546B000R923TUABHTUY9SCL0A1Debi3351339113600The BestThese are fantastic tomatoes !!! We love them !! I am waiting for them to come back in stock so I can order 2 more cases. I do not want my house to be without them !!! I am also sending a case to my daughter in Montana. She will be having a baby girl anytime, and I want them there when I fly in so I can make spaghetti and meatballs.
254547254547B000R923TUA18U7ZLAA90PNMAlan Colon3351325289600Outstanding.I make all my sauces from scratch, and ordered these from Amazon. The tomatoes are peeled and packed in puree (not sauce), have a great flavor and consistency, break down nicely when cooked, and have a rich and meaty taste. So far, these are the best I've found.
The cans are good sized, one can made a great great sauce for 3-4 people (depending on appetite).
Not just for marinara, we've used them in curries, chili, and anything else that needs tomatoes.
254548254548B000R923TUA1JKQ8B4VO5UZXDonna M. Beverin "Donna Beverin"3351265587200Carmelina canned tomatoes reviewExcellent Italian canned tomatoes. I have used 6 of 12 cans already and every can has been perfect. Big tomatoes, peeled very well. The liquid is a thick sauce, not a watery juice. Excellent for marinara. You can't go wrong. Plus save all the hauling cans from the store. I am very satified and will order another box when I use these up...Plus free shipping...how can you go wrong?

254549254549B000R923TUA6VPIOPMDJ8H7Joseph Ekaitis "author of Collinsfort Village"3351243900800From Italy con l'amore.We've replaced canned tomato sauce in all of our favorite recipes with these ravishing red beauties from Italy and we're never going back. Aside from being peeled and then pasteurized in the can, these San Marzano plum tomatoes are just about as fresh as when they were plucked off the vine in the Campania region of Italy. That means they aren't cooked until you cook them, and what a difference THAT makes, especially with sauces simmered all day in a slow cooker or thrown together on the spur of the moment in a pressure cooker.

Amazon.com's Free Super Saver shipping makes them a bargain compared to ordinary canned tomatoes and a steal versus the price of San Marzano tomatoes from the store.
254550254550B000R923TUA1ZG4UF20XGF5MBen264521332547200Damaged cansMost of the cans inside the box were badly damaged. Will be very hard to open them. This is very disappointing since I signed up to receive this product as a subscriber.
