Van Houtte Chocolate Raspberry Truffle K-Cups, offers rich coffee enhanced with chocolate and juicy raspberry flavors.
every brand deserves to have one loser.
this is van houtt’s worst flavor in my opinion…
I orderd Van Houtte Chocolate Raspberry Truffle K-Cups for Keurig Brewers, 24-Count Boxes (Pack of 2)
Sold by: Amazon.com, LLC. This item was listed under hot chocolate. This is not hot chocolate this is a flavored coffee and I cannot return it because it is a food product. I feel I this item was not represented correctly and I am paying for an item I will never use. This was their error and not mine.
I cannot get any help from the seller. I am stuck!!!!
NEVER will I order from here again.
Has a funky taste, thought would be interesting to try given the high reviews. Not sure where these are coming from? Thought this was the worst coffee I’ve ever had and no one I’ve given a cup to thought it was any good.
Going to stick with my Cafe Escapes Cafe Mocha. Their Chai Latte is also very good. Cafe Escapes is probably the best brand I’ve had in K-Cups so far.
I love raspberry and chocolate. I could live on Sees Raspberry chocolate truffles. But this coffee, ugh. Brewing it smells pretty nice, a bit fruity, not much chocolate. In the mug- awful chemical processed cleaner/air freshener flavor (not that I am in the habit of eating those) but hot it just tastes artificial. It does have some sweet taste to it, but even adding milk and sugar do not make it drinkable.
If I let it sit around (and really, I bought the Keurig so I could have coffee NOW when I wanted it, not in 10 minutes) and it cools, it becomes passable. But only barely. The chemical flavor dissipates and it is drinkable, but only because after spending that much on coffee, I feel obligated to.
Spare yourself the torture, skip this coffee, unless you like the taste of lysol, then it might be for you!
I purchased this product after reading great reviews on here. I really like chocolate / mocha flavors, and was interested to try the raspberry. Got the two boxes, checked the dates (sometimes an issue with K-cups I have found), and eagerly popped one into my brewer. Smell was amazing and I was excited. But when I tasted it, I was so disappointed. Not strong on either the chocolate or raspberry fronts, and the coffee flavor was weak as well. Now I am stuck with 47 cups I don’t want. I wish I could recommend these, but I must dissent against the popular reviews. I realize everyone’s tastebuds are a bit different, but these are not for me!

I’ve been trying to duplicate Baskin Robbins Capuccino Blasts for years. So I have come close using this Keurig coffee cup, then add a little artificial sweetener, a tablespoon of Hillsbrothers English toffee mix and a little heavy whipping cream. Once the coffee is brewed I mixe everything together and let it cool off and then stick the freezer safe glass in the freezer for an hour or so until the mixture is almost frozen. Then add some crushed ice and have a delicious cold drink. I am not fond of hot coffee, but love this refreshing drink when I need a pick me up.

This is a great product. So easy to use, makes consistent coffee every time

I have enjoyed creme brulee on many occasions and thought that this coffee would provide a hint of that delicious dessert. It has a strange and unpleasant aftertaste. If, after tasting this coffee, someone offered me a menu featuring Creme Brulee for dessert, I would avoid it at all costs. There is no flavor in this coffee that bears any resemblance to Creme Brulee.

Coffee was on back order, was worth the wait, greatest tasting French Vanilla K-Cup Coffee around.
This flavor sounded like it would be good, like ice creamy, and it seemed to get lots of positive reviews here on Amazon. So when I came across a small sample box at Lowe’s of the stuff, I bought it. Unfortunately. This “coffee” tastes like old dishwater in which a pair of running shoes and a vanilla-scented car air freshener were steeped for a week.
I don’t like the taste, which perhaps can be expected — I’m not a big coffee drinker. However, my daughter, who likes coffee, didn’t like it either and says she’d rather go without than drink it again.
My expectations were for a very chocolate/raspberry flavored coffee drink. What I got was a harsh coffee taste with a slight aroma of raspberry and maybe a hint of chocolate. I didn’t taste the raspberry or chocolate at all.

Good coffee just not my style. I gave it a try with the reviews but it’s not for me. I would give it 5 stars for the aroma!!
It sounds delicious, but the taste is just too fruity, and not all that good tasting. It just tastes weird, for lack of a better description. I enjoyed Van Houtte French Vanilla and Creme Brulee flavors, but this one will be re-gifted:) I wish you could get smaller samplers without having to commit to this many.

I have liked all of the Van Houtte Kcups I have tried; except this one. Though the coffee wasn’t bad in itself, I could not detect and vanilla flavor at all. Though this blend was smooth and had little to no bitterness; I expected a vanilla like flavor and detected none.

I am so excited to see Amazon offering the Van Houtte k cups. They are by far my favorites. This one is my husbands favorite. I am not big on the fruity flavored coffes, but I love the way this one makes the whole room smell. I was surprised that I like this one. These coffees are a great combination of flavor and a medium bodied coffee. I have tried five of their flavors and all of them taste exactly like what they are supposed to taste like. The 5 I have tried are the raspberry truffle of course and Creme Caramel (tastes like those little square caramels you see at Halloween), Spicy Mayan ( My favorite chocolate and cinnamon mix), pecan praline and creme brulee. I am so happy I no longer have to spend more to stock these coffees. My house is never out of the Raspberry Chocolate truffle and the Spicy Mayan. They have the best and most unique flavors. If you like flavored coffee that is full of flavor and yet has a nice smooth medium bodied coffee taste, then these are a must try. I highly recommend the Van Houtte line of k cups.
I’ll keep it short. If you like flavored coffees, perhaps have a sweet tooth, you’ll love these. We did. If the morning or after dinner, they are DELICIOUS.
I love this stuff with just a touch of vanilla creamer. Caramel and vanilla coffee, with the caramel slightly overpowering the vanilla, perfectly balanced with a shot of vanilla creamer. What a great flavor combination, with a heavenly aroma.
My favorite flavored coffee.
As a longtime avid fan of vanilla flavored coffee, I was excited about trying this brand of ‘French Vanilla’ on our new Keurig machine. In short, I am VERY dissapointed with this one! At any setting on the Keurig, this coffee tastes terrible. There is next to no vanilla flavor or notes (and the little there is tastes totally artificial and way off on accuracy for vanilla), and the coffee itself tastes very cheap and low quality. I wouldn’t even give away these remaining French Vanilla K-cups, so I just tossed them in the garbage.
I love creme brulee. If I were to drown in a vat of it, I think that’d be a pretty good way to go. So, naturally, when I see something that is flavored like creme brulee but without the calories, I get excited.
I got excited about this coffee.
Now, it’s good coffee, as far as coffee goes. Nothing wrong with that. But if someone served me this and asked me to identify the flavor, creme brulee wouldn’t even make it on the list. It’s almost got a bitter taste to it — even Splenda didn’t help much.
Unfortunately, I ordered two boxes and will be lucky if I get through one. Guess I’ll sell the other one on ebay or something. Dunno. What I *do* know is that I won’t be drinking it.
I was always a big fan Of Gloria Jeans Raspberry chocolate beans as they made a wonderful cup of coffee and the house smelled so good just from having the beans around. When I saw the Van Houtte Chocolate Raspberry I ordered it hopping to have the same great flavor and aroma. I opened the box and no aroma, thought ok they are packed so well the aroma can’t excape. I brewed 2 cups 2 different sizes. Smelled good while brewing. This coffee is not strong and is very smoothe but all I could taste was the raspberry, no chocolate at all. The next cup I actually added some chocolate milk to hoping for the chocolate to come through. No go, that didn’t even help. If you want a raspberry flavored coffee this is good for that, but don’t expect any chocolate flavor. I have had my Keurig about 4 years and have gone through some coffee so I know what I enjoy and this isn’t it and now I have 4 boxes to go through. Maybe Van Houtte brand isn’t for me. I love Emeril’s the best and maybe down the road they will get Gloria Jean’s Rasberry Chocolate?
There IS a difference! I was under the impression this was a chocolate flavored coffee with raspberry undertones. It’s the opposite. I hate the raspberry flavor because it makes it taste like cough medicine. I tried mixing it a hot chocolate mix but it didn’t work. That raspberry flavor is very overpowering. Also, it’s only one star because I have a tendency to like medium roasts but this is less than a light roast. Watery raspberry coffee truffles with a suggestion of chocolate is a more accurate description. They smell good, though.
These K-cups arrived in a timely fashion but when I’ve tried using them at all 3 size settings none of them are strong enough. It seems there is not enough coffee in them. I wrote a complaint to Van Houtte and they did not respond…So I’ve got nearly 50 cups that when brewed smell like chocolate raspberry but taste like water. Not happy.
I ordered this flavor of k-cup from Amazon because it sounded so darn good…and it is!! The flavors mix and mingle in your mouth when you drink it. I use cream in my coffee and it doesn’t dilute the delightful flavor. Try it, you will be pleased.
This is a light to medium roast, wish it was slightly stronger, but the flavor is good and I am having it every morning using 2 6 oz. k-cups pumps to make it as strong as possible.
This coffee does smell wonderful (mostly of raspberry and not so much the chocolate) but it tastes weak to me. I usually prefer a donut shop taste (middle of the road for boldness) and was disappointed that this tasted a bit watered down. I will not be purchasing it again.
I found this coffee weak and not very appealing. The vanilla flavor is hardly present, and when you do get a taste, it is artificial.
There may be a need to start a 12-step program for this coffee. 🙂
I do not usually like flavored coffees but I am so glad that I tried this one.

I’m not a huge flavored coffee person, but I really love these! The coffee is mild to medium bodied and the flavoring isn’t overpowering. It’s got a great aroma (the co-worker next to me always loves when I brew one of these) and a clean, distinct taste.
I’ve got these on Subscribe and Save!
The taste of raspberry is pretty much all I get out of this. I do not taste nor smell chocolate! The raspberry is too overwhelming which ruins the coffee. Now I have 2 boxes of this which I’ll probably never finish. I love coffee and hate the fact that this flavor destroys the coffee taste.. and completely leaves out the chocolate!

Just a sweet and enjoyable coffee. Almost a dessert coffee, but I drink it all of the time. No stray grounds, another winner from Van Houtte!!
