GODIVA CHOCOLATE DEBUTS THE FIRST-EVER “TRUFFLE FLIGHTS™”
A NEW COLLECTION OFFERING AN INDULGENT TASTE JOURNEY
NEW YORK, NY (June 1, 2013) – This fall, GODIVA Chocolatier introduces the first-ever Truffle Flights™ collection, an indulgent new tasting experience where every truffle tells a distinct story. With six unique flights featuring a mix of GODIVA’s new and most beloved truffles, the collection creates a memorable taste journey that lingers long after the chocolate has deliciously disappeared. Each flight features six hand selected truffles that are placed in order for the ideal tasting experience. Much like you would taste a wine flight, tasting a GODIVA Truffle flight is a progressive exploration of flavors, textures and aromas. Each box offers a deliciously rich taste journey, with a beginning, middle and end that consistently unveils new surprises, experiences and sensations.
The concept of Truffle Flights™ is thoroughly groundbreaking, simply because GODIVA is the first to invent it. Hand-crafted by GODIVA’s master Belgium chocolatiers, the Collection features signature truffles created with the finest ingredients. In addition to GODIVA’s classic flavors, five new truffles will make their debut, including Salted Caramel, Hazelnut Crunch, Salted Almond, Aztec Spice and Black Forest.
Feeling a little nutty? The Nut Lovers Truffle Flight begins by biting into the new Salted Almond truffle, a smooth and subtle center of milk chocolate and almond praline topped with salted almonds, before indulging in an irresistible blend of caramel, pecan, milk chocolate and rich vanilla cream with the Pecan Caramel. Go deeper into the story with the bold, layered Butterscotch Walnut and dense, earthy Maple Walnut. And just like a great novel, finish with the perfect unexpected twist – the memorable Pistachio Truffle.
Those with sinful sides will love the Dark Decadence Truffle Flight, while fans of classic luxury will enjoy the Heavenly Mousse Truffle Flight. Surprise your loved one with a trip through the most indulgent desserts, including Crème Brulee and Tiramisu, with the Ultimate Dessert Truffle Flight, or delight the Milk Choco-aholic in you with the Milk Chocolate Lovers Truffle Flight. Know someone who can’t resist the last bite of cake? The Cake Truffle Flight includes six truffles that capture the essence of GODIVA’s most iconic cake inspired truffles, from Birthday Cake to Lemon Chiffon.
Each Truffle Flight reflects GODIVA’s passion, attention to detail and artistry that has been nurtured and perfected over the years. Created under the guidance of Executive Chef Chocolatier, Thierry Muret, who is celebrating his 25th anniversary with the brand this year, the new collection symbolizes GODIVA’s commitment to innovation.
“GODIVA sets the gold standard for chocolate confections around the world,” states Executive Chef Chocolatier, Thierry Muret. “We excel at the details, no matter how big or how small. We are passionate and take pride in the premium quality of chocolate craftsmanship and Belgian heritage at GODIVA.”
