Delysia is very excited about the opportunity to be featured in the Ask SugarRush Lounge, and we look forward to connecting with you on Saturday! Please remember to vote for Delysia after stopping by our table to enjoy a taste of one of our Handmade Chocolate Truffles.

Our truffles are made in the traditional Parisian style, each preservative-free with no mass production. We use fine quality chocolate and only the freshest ingredients so you can enjoy truffles near perfection. A few of the truffles being featured at the SugarRush Lounge include:

  • Cigar Truffle
    Robust, aromatic, and settling, this award winning truffle (1st place at the Texas Chocolate Festival) creates a taste of bittersweet chocolate with a delayed smoky, tingling finish.
  • Wasabi Raspberry Truffle
    Spicy but sweet, this two-time award winning truffle (1st place at the Texas Chocolate Festival) has a taste of the sweetness of the raspberry chocolate on the start and quickly changes to a slight burn on the finish from the wasabi.
  • ‘The Salt Lick’ Habanero BBQ Sauce Truffle
    The taste of Salt Lick BBQ enrobed in chocolate, we take The Salt Lick BBQ’s world famous habanero BBQ sauce and blend it with a 60% dark chocolate ganache.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon Truffle
    Fruitful austerity, our award winning Cabernet Sauvignon truffle (1st place at the Texas Chocolate Festival) features Becker Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 60% dark chocolate and dried cherries for added texture.
  • Sweet Tea Vodka with Orange Peel White Chocolate Truffle
    Richly complex and heavily sweet, we blend Deep Eddy’s Sweet Tea Vodka with white chocolate spiked with orange peel – a perfectly sweet and refreshing truffle for a hot Austin day.
  • Firecracker Truffle
    Explosive and spicy hot, this special truffle has been created especially for the SugarRush Lounge and is inspired by Austin’s music scene. This truffle takes our best selling cayenne truffle and adds the complexity of pop rocks. Experience the essence of Austin as you taste the dark chocolate, slowly sense the popping sensation of pop rocks, and finish with the delayed burn of cayenne.
