Bastille Day is July 14th, and that means that red, white and blue will be flowing once again through many homes that are celebrating the day that the French Revolution began, way back in 1789.  Whether you’re French, or just a francophile, Bastille Day is a great time, and what better way to celebrate than to pair it with some delicious chocolates!

It’s no secret- the French love their wine!  And, Delysia has created a collection dedicated to oenophiles who love their chocolate, too!  Featuring flavors like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Port, it’s clear when tasting these chocolates why they won grand prize award at the Chocolate and Wine Festival of Texas and were featured in a 2013 issue of Wine Spectator.

3.  Prestige Collection

Moving into even more decadent flavors, Delysia’s Prestige Collection offers very French flavors across its 9 truffles.  The first is champagne, which is as French as the beret.  The next is dark chocolate, which can be paired nicely with a French red wine like Burgundy or Bordeaux.  Finally, there’s cigar, which adds a great smoky taste to the chocolate that will make you feel as if you’re strolling the Riviera.

So, this Bastille Day, think about celebrating with one of the above-mentioned truffle collection.  Their unique, award-winning flavors will cause your friends and family to exclaim in admiration for your truly international taste.  Plus, with your 4th of July gear probably still out, why not celebrate another red, white and blue holiday?
