Indulge. Restore. Repeat.®

orange and yellow sunset over Lake Champlain

It’s been a very long and trying day, and to make matters worse, it’s only 2 o’clock. Between working from home, entertaining stir-crazy kids, managing zoom call after zoom call, all while trying to find balance in life during the times of a world-wide pandemic…I’m at my wit’s end. Standing in the kitchen surrounded by a typhoon of crazy (because let’s face it, I had given up on trying to reign in the kids), I remember I have a couple of squares of my favorite dark chocolate bar left in my secret stash.  Peeling back the wrapper, I take a bite.

As it slowly melts, the flavors fill my mouth and I’m transported to my happy place — sitting on a beach, with my feet in the sand, watching the sunset across the lake as a gentle breeze rustles the trees behind me. As the last morsel of chocolate melts away, the sound of my kids' bickering brings me back to reality. My fleeting moment of sweet serenity is gone, but I am restored and ready to take on the rest of the day. 

It’s amazing what a piece of chocolate can do.

Chocolate on a mission

What if a chocolate bar not only restored you but could also restore your happy place?  Our new Restorative Moments Collection® sets out to do just that with six extra-dark chocolate flavors crafted from only the best organic and fair trade certified ingredients. Each one is wrapped in a design that evokes the last slice of the summer sun as it sets behind the mountains, lingering for just a moment to let its awe-inspiring colors reflect back across the lake. 

These bars were born from the desire that chocolate should preserve and protect the restorative moments, both in life and in nature. For this new collection, we are proud to be partnering with the Intervale Center’s Conservation Nursery — donating 10% of net profits from this collection to a local organization that plants trees to help restore the quality and integrity of our waterways, like our namesake, Lake Champlain.
