This graceful nymph of Greek legend may have been transformed by the angry gods into a bear for daring to consort with Zeus, but her beauty reigns immortal, illuminating the evening sky as the Great Bear constellation. The sensory delight of one Callisto chocolate is similarly destined to provide an infinite landscape of pleasure. At its heart is a delectable gianduja of pistachio, almonds, and cocoa butter. A layer of white ganache with a whisper of vanilla adds an aromatic kiss of mystery to this confection, which is dipped in bittersweet chocolate and regally crowned with a sliver of pistachio.
This naiad of Greek legend fled across a craggy Grecian landscape, redolent of sea-towering cliffs and ambrosial citrus, to escape the love of Apollo, preferring to be transformed into the aromatic laurel tree rather than succumbing to an unwanted love. Daphne captures in one delectable bite the tastes and temptations of that flight, combining the mysterious floral essence of a Grecian countryside with the complex flavors of marzipan, ginger, and pistachio, drenched in the romantic lure of deeply dark chocolate and capped with a fragrant peel of citrus bathed in the bittersweet regret of Cointreau®*.

The sea nymph Galatea was coveted by the infamous Cyclops of Odyssey fame. Enamored of a young man named Acis, she defied the evil giant, who, in a fit of rage, slew her young lover. Grief stricken, Galatea transformed her lover’s lifeblood into the beautiful River Acis. A fitting tribute to the transformative nature of eternal love, our Galatea chocolate layers a raspberry pâtés de fruit, delicately flavored with raspberry Chambord®*, with a hazelnut ganache blended with praline. The fruit and nut layers are then submerged in a sea of milk chocolate and crowned with a crunch of caramelized hazelnuts.
The young naiad Pallas, playmate of the goddess Athena, was accidentally slain by her beloved friend in a game of war. In an expression of grief and loyalty, the goddess of wisdom joined the naiad’s name to her own, calling herself, forever after, Pallas Athena. Our Pallas chocolate honors these warrior comrades with the commingling of two valiant flavors. Its filbert base is blended on one side with ouzo-flavored milky chocolate, on the other with a dense concentration of dark espresso laced with chocolate as bittersweet as the legend itself.
Transformed by Apollo into the sacred fountain that serves the Delphic Oracle at the foot of Mount Parnassus, the naiad Kastalia continues to inspire the poetic muse of those fortunate to drink from her sweetly murmuring waters. Our delectable Kastalia chocolates were similarly inspired, and are undoubtedly the closest you will ever come to edible poetry. Imagine a buttery smooth ganache of milky chocolate, fragrantly infused with the essence of Earl Grey tea, encased in a midnight lilt of our finest bittersweet chocolate, which has been graced with a wisp of lemon for a subtle aftertaste that will make you feel as immortal as a drink from Kastalia’s silvery waves.
Legend has it that this fair-haired nymph, consort of Poseidon, was well-versed in the healing powers of medicinal herbs. Among them, no doubt, was that rarest of spices, masticha. Grown almost exclusively on the Greek Isle of Chios, this delicate member of the pistachio family exudes a pine-like fragrance that lingers on the palette with the brisk freshness of a walk in the woods. This mysterious herb lends its aura of magic to our Agamede chocolate where it is blended into a sensuous layer of dark chocolate ganache. Below, lies a dense frappé cream, embellished with the exotic tastes of wild cherries, crunchy almonds, and the essence of roses. Coated in a decadence of dark and milk chocolate. A toast to your health you’re unlikely to regret.
