Tonight the 88th Academy Awards will air awarding a new movie the title of best of the year. I’ll personally be watching to see if Leo finally gets his Oscar or if he’s passed over again this year. While none of this year’s nominated movies are about chocolate, the sweet treat is no stranger to the movies. Get in the Oscars spirit by watching one of these Academy Awards nominated films while indulging in some delicious Delysia Chocolatier products.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – This childhood favorite is the first movie that comes to mind when you think of candy. What better collection to pair with than our Childhood Truffle Collection. The Neapolitan inspired Ice Cream Truffle features layers of milk chocolate, white chocolate, and strawberry puree. Everyone’s favorite sandwich is made even better in the Peanut Butter and Jelly Truffle featuring raspberry puree, peanut butter, and our signature chocolate shell. Homemade marshmallows and graham crackers are mixed with chocolate ganache to create our S’mores Truffle. One bite of these truffles and you’ll think you’ve scored your own golden ticket.
Chocolat – This Academy Award nominated film is as delicious as the name suggests. The story about a single mom who enchants a small French town with her magically delicious chocolates is often forgotten when talking about nominated films, but it shouldn’t be. The perfect pairing is any one of Delysia Chocolatier’s Chocolate Barks; these chocolate treats are often overlooked for our signature truffle collections, yet are equally delicious. Each chocolate bark features a unique complex flavor available in a three different sizes. Try the Peanut Butter Bark for a classic familiar flavor or break out of your comfort zone with something more exotic such as the Pistachio Cranberry Chocolate Bark.
Forrest Gump – This 1995 Best Picture winner may not technically be about chocolate, but there’s no doubt it gave us one of the most famous lines about the sweet treat. “My mama always said, ‘Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.’” The Signature Truffle Collection is the perfect pairing because it includes nine different flavors in every box. Each box is half milk chocolate based and half dark chocolate based featuring nine unique yet classic flavors.
In all honesty no matter which Delysia Chocolatier product you pair with your favorite movie it will be a winner. So choose your favorite treat or the one you’ve always wanted to try and settle down for an at home movie night.
