Oh Joy | Godiva Truffle Flights

I'm not a big drinker, so when I hear about wine flights or beer flights, my mind wanders to dessert. I'd much rather fill up my calories on a treat of the sweet kind. Tasting flights are all about starting with the lightest version of a taste and getting bolder and more interesting with each piece. So I decided to share how I'd savor each piece of a flight of chocolate using one of the six flights in these GODIVA Truffle Flights™ (I chose the cake truffles).

Each truffle in the series is placed in the box in order for the ideal tasting experience. And because each bite has it's own taste and story, I wanted to pair each with their own complementary "shot" of my favorite relaxing drinks. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, I encourage you to try making your dessert (whether it's simply ice cream, chocolates, or potato chips) into a really fancy flight. It will make even the simplest snack feel more luxurious and indulgent...

No. 01 - Birthday Cake truffle + milk: Any dessert is pretty special with a glass of ice cold milk, especially when it tastes like a birthday party in one little bite.

No. 02 - Pineapple Hummingbird + mint tea: When I was pregnant, I drank so much mint tea to calm my nausea. I have been in love with it ever since. Simply add fresh mint leaves to hot water, and it steeps in no time. Paired with a fruity bite of pineapple, banana, and white chocolate, the mint tea is even better.

No. 03 - Cheesecake + an iced latte: An iced latte is my favorite afternoon pick-me-up when I'm feeling a little sluggish. Add a creamy bite of cheesecake-inspired chocolate...and, ummm, amazing.

No. 04 - Red Velvet + green tea: I love pairing chocolate with my favorite tea of all: green tea. The slight bitterness from the tea balances out the sweetness from the cocoa in this morsel of red velvet.

No. 05 - Chocolate Lava + Iced Mocha: I've been loving iced mochas lately as a morning or afternoon delight. Take a bite of dark chocolate with a sip of an iced mocha, and it's like a mini version of a very fancy dessert.

No. 06 - Lemon Chiffon + coconut water: Finally, top it all off with a refreshing sip of coconut water and a lemony bite of white chocolate.

I love the idea of keeping a box of chocolates and only having one a day. By enjoying just one each day paired with a tasty drink, the one bite becomes an indulgence to look forward to.
