Some people are blessed with the gift of gab; they can spin a sonnet the same way some people can rattle off their breakfast orders. But even if you’re more prone to being tongue-tied when around the person you love, there’s another way to show your adoration; Smooth Talker Mousse. Creamy, smooth, fluffy, light, and with a deep, rich chocolatey flavor, Smooth Talker Mousse is a profound statement. It says just how sweet you are on them, just like this dessert is sweet on your taste buds!
