Did you know July is National Ice Cream month? According to the International Dairy Foods Association, in 1984 President Ronald Reagan designated July as the month to celebrate everyone’s favorite frozen treat. With annual sales revenues topping $10 billion, it’s no wonder ice cream is an indulgence for more than 90% of the U.S. population. And what goes better with ice cream than delicious chocolate? That’s why Delysia Chocolatier combined these two favorites to create our Ice Cream truffle.
Inspired by Neapolitan ice cream, we start with a layer of milk chocolate ganache followed by a layer of white chocolate ganache. Then we add a layer of our award-winning strawberry ganache – white chocolate blended with handmade strawberry puree and studded with dried strawberries from Poteet Texas. This center is then wrapped in milk chocolate for a taste straight out of your childhood. In fact, we made our Ice Cream truffle the centerpiece of our Childhood Collection so you can enjoy the flavors of carefree youth with a grown-up twist. In addition to Ice Cream, the Childhood Collection also includes Peanut Butter & Jelly and S’mores truffles.
Make sure you have plenty of ice cream and chocolate on-hand because Sunday, July 20th is officially National Ice Cream Day. We’re looking forward to celebrating with plenty of frozen treats and chocolate.
We want to see photos of you enjoying your favorite scoops! Post your images on our instagram (@delysia_choc) with the hashtag #DelysiaIceCreamDay. And don’t forget to pick up our Childhood Collection in our online shop.
