During the past week, my taste buds were treated to a delightful, sensory ride to dessert heaven-in liquid format!
Delicia Strawberries & Cream and Delicia Peaches & Cream are two very tasty beverages that can be drank right out of the bottle, used as a side complement to a meal or dessert, or garnished (or embellished) with real fruit to further intensify the flavor.
I, along with my fellow “taste samplers“, decided to go for all three!
We put together a small, impromptu “sample session” (or “taste party”, if you will), accompanied by two big salads, a juicy steak and several ripe strawberries and peaches.
The two Delicia drinks were first tried solo, resulting in this consensus: While we all liked the Peaches & Cream, the Strawberries & Cream had the “WOW!” factor (fantastic scent, look and the taste was to die for!).
Both beverages were then tried with our light, simple summer meal: And once again, there was a preference for the Strawberries & Cream.
But with the fruit, I would declare a tie: Both beverages were equally awesome! The fruit really brought out the taste of the Delicias, and vice versa (my overall preference would still be the Strawberries & Cream; I love peaches, but I really have a thing for strawberries. Plus I believe you can do a bit more with them).
I also tried a couple of lemon wedges with the Strawberries & Cream and also added a few fresh strawberries and watermelon bits in several drinks (absolutely wonderful!). The fresh fruit bits can also be frozen and then added to the particular drink. As the fruit thaws, there’ll be even more intense flavor!
I was also particularly impressed with the bottle instructions and the bottle top. There’s actually a certain way you should open and reseal Delicia (don’t worry; the instructions are very easy to follow. I highly recommend that you follow these instructions exactly; the beverage will stay fresh and will last to the end if you do!).
Special Note: Delicia is not a wine per se (there‘s only a 5% alcohol level); it’s a dessert-flavored alcoholic beverage, with a wine-like taste (it’s very good!). In addition to Delicia’s Strawberries & Cream and Peaches and Cream, other flavors include:
Delicia Whipped, which has the taste of sweet whipped cream with a hint of rich vanilla.
Red Velvet is reminiscent of rich, red velvet layer cake (how cool is that?).
All of the Delicia beverages retails for $6.99 (per bottle).
