The snow has melted (for the most part) and bare branches are transforming into verdant green buds—spring has officially arrived! The change of the seasons brings longer, warmer days and—perhaps best of all—a heap of zippy, fresh flavors. A new crop of produce springs up each spring ready to tantalize our taste buds; here’s what we’re looking forward to sinking our teeth into this season.
The quintessential spring fruit? Most definitely strawberries. Juicy, slightly tart, and bursting with flavor, these berries add a major oomph to everything from desserts to salads. Get ready to spot overflowing baskets of strawberries at your local farmers’ market soon; the bright-red berry’s peak season is from April to June. Want a taste of strawberries Delysia-style? Try the strawberry truffle in our Berry Truffle Collection. Enrobed in silky smooth dark chocolate, it’s a sweet, sophisticated way to welcome the new flavors of spring.
Oranges and Lemons and Limes, Oh My!
When you think about the intense heat of summer, do you long for a cool glass of lemonade to quench your thirst? Lots of people do—so it may come as a surprise to learn that citrus season actually peaks during the cooler months of winter and early spring. Grab some of the juicy, tangy fruits before the dog days of summer set in so you can taste them at their best. If you’re looking to indulge in a sweet-tart flavor combo, try the zippy chocolates in Delysia’s Citrus Truffle Collection. The orange, lemon, and lime flavors will make you smile, not pucker up!
Let’s Lighten Up
Cooking during the colder months is characterized by intense seasonings, heavy soups, and thick sauces—it’s yummy, but by March we’re ready for something lighter. Chefs treat springtime recipes a little differently; think light, bright flavors and simple, delicate dishes. That’s why we love the flavors of Delysia’s Easter Truffle Collection for Spring. We’ve lightened things up with fun, frothy flavors like marshmallow and white chocolate. We promise these chocolates won’t weigh you down.
