Peanut butter and jelly. Popcorn and butter. Waffles and syrup. Bacon and eggs. Steak and potatoes. Berries and chocolate. Some combinations are made for each other. And the Berry truffle collection from Delysia Chocolatier is no exception.
Our Berry collection includes raspberry, blueberry, and our award-winning strawberry truffles. Raspb
erry is dark chocolate mixed with real raspberries for a rich, tart flavor. Blueberry features our succulent milk chocolate with blueberry purée and dried blueberries – high in antioxidants. And for our Strawberry truffle, we made our own strawberry purée and blended it with white chocolate for a velvety-smooth finish. This pink-tinted-ganache won us a Bronze Award for the International Chocolate Salon’s White Chocolate competition.
The blend of chocolate and berries is not only delicious, it’s good for you too! Both dark chocolate and berries contain flavonoids – antioxidant compounds found in colorful fruits and vegetables as well as other healthy foods. Consuming a diet rich in antioxidants and flavonoids – enhanced with tea, dark chocolate, berries, and red wine – can protect against a wide range of diseases, including heart disease, hypertension, some cancers and dementia. A recent study out of the U.K. indicates that flavonoids may help regulate glucose levels, helping to stave off type-2 diabetes. So giving in to that dark chocolate craving once in a while will do you way more good than harm. Add a glass of earthy red wine and you’re setting out on the path to wellness.
Our dark chocolate products are all at least 60% dark, providing as much of the flavonoids as we can while still creating rich and delicious truffles. The difference is immediate as you bite into a succulent, velvety Delysia truffle. And with the tart and sweet combination from the berries, you have one of the most delicious combinations since macaroni and cheese. Or butterscotch and ice cream. Or…(you get the drift!)
