I had G. Debbas chocolate truffles a couple years ago and loved them. I'm a teatotaller, but not completely against a bit of the stuff. Would I be wasting my time with these in terms of enjoyment? Or should I go for it?

Edit: Ok, you all convinced me, I'm in for three! Good job all.

Previous woot 1/24/2013. Same price.
Was in for 3. Suggest the same this time around.

The G. Debbas video is worth it just to hear him pronounce his name, and to find out he cares about each piece.

In for 3, they make great gifts.

Ahh, I would love some of these but I'm in Florida, and I'm sure they'd melt on their way here.

Just curious. Overall description says "Filled with premium California wines; Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Port"

On the individual descriptions the port is spiked punch?

These are food items but have alcoholic content... are they affected by the laws about shipping booze to certain states?

I'm in PA (which has that stupid restriction), but I was able to get them the last time around. I guess because they are considered a confection vs. alcohol, they can be shipped.

First, thank you, Woot!

I stored my last batch in the fridge for four months and they held up. They're definitely fine for 3 months in the fridge (or, better still, wine cellar!).

Last, for the teetotaler, you won't get drunk off these, but they definitely taste a bit like wine and have the same heat (alcohol) on the tongue. So, whether you should buy them or not depends on your reason for avoiding alcohol. If you don't like the taste, don't buy these. If you don't like the effects, you can buy these without problem.

These look amazing! I would buy these for sure if I hadn't lost my job due to budget cuts yesterday. Can't justify this now. :-(

I ordered these last time they showed up - I think for Valentines day. They indeed are very very good. But for me personally I feel that spending $1 for one piece is just too much. If you buy them I'm sure you will enjoy them.

Any thoughts on when these will ship? I'll be out of town for a week soon and wouldn't want them sitting on the porch.

But, they may make you "blow" positive on a breathalyzer if RECENTLY consumed, heed that caution! (Same as alcohol containing mouth wash, etc.)

Not a wine drinker, but these sound interesting!

I'm really not sure whether I will like the taste of the wine or not, but I went ahead and ordered, so I guess I'll find out soon. Thanks for your input.

Was considering buying 2 but after seeing that I had to pay taxes in TN, I changed my mind! An additional $3.76 in taxes kills the deal of not paying additional shipping costs. :-(

That's no good. Mine was originally scheduled for delivery today, but it changed today to delivery on Monday. So it's going to sit in the post office all weekend. I hope it doesn't get too warm there. I don't want chocolate wine soup. Fingers crossed.

Mine arrived today. No leakage! But the first package I pulled out was ripped and covered in sticky. I opened it and inspected the goodies and they are intact. I'm not sure what the sticky is or where it came from but it doesn't appear to be from the candies. A couple other packages have a little bit of sticky but most are clean. I'll forgive the sticky and torn package because I sampled a Zombie Spiked Punch Port filled candy and Wow! Yum! I thought sure the wine would be a bit of turn off, but it was quite a yummy combination. This teatotaller is so glad he purchased. Does this mean I'm not a teatotaller? Ha. Nah. I still am. This doesn't count. It's more chocolate than wine. G. Debbas you have impressed me again.

Update 10-29-2013: I found the cause of sticky. One of my "clean" packages had a completely shattered chocolate in it. Odd that it wasn't at all evident from looking at the package. Still yummy chocolate even broken. I'm surprised how little the wine bothers me. I hardly notice it's there to be honest.

Well this will be a test of Woot's customer support. 3/6 boxes are in good shape.
1 Box had 3 chocolates with holes so the wine leaked out over the rest.

1 box had 2 chocolates with holes.

Then the worst was 1 box that had all seals broken inside and outside. The chocolates are not in a nice row either.

Makes me wonder if these were returns from the seller.

Hopefully woot will do what is right.

OK, so I pulled the trigger and bought 3 even though la.me-o tax was added.

Mine arrived in perfect shape and I had my first taste today which was the Zombie Spiked Punch Filled Chocolates because it was the first one my hand touched.

YUM!!! I am making a REAL effort not to go back downstairs and eat another individual chocolate as I could probably eat a whole package in a short period of time. As of this writing I have had two chocolates and I can really taste the cocoa butter which makes all the difference.

I'm glad I bought 3 (total 18 packages of 6 chocolates each) and I hope I can moderate my snacking over the next few months so these will last a while.

Fortunately for me, my wife does not like dark chocolate and as such, I have not told her about this purchase and have them hidden on a shelf well outside of her reach, mu-wa-ha-ha-ha!

2 of 6 broken boxes here. A piece or two pieces broken in transit in each, really making for an awful sticky mess of the entire box. I let Woot know, hopefully get some good news come Monday. Those two boxes not withstanding, the pieces in the good boxes were out of this world good! A little bit more padded shipping may be in order with candies like this.
