Taste Buds Bloom with Chocoveda's New Garden-Inspired Truffles

Chocoveda, maker of award-winning, vegan, all-natural dark chocolate, grows its collection with the new Garden Box, a distinctive assortment of seven floral and fruit-infused handmade 72% dark chocolate truffles.
More than just a piece of chocolate, each truffle includes an Ayurvedic herbal tonic known to ease stress, and the box even comes with seeds to grow healing herbs.

The garden-inspired truffles, which take root in a whimsical memento box, harvest aromatic flavors including rose, orange blossom, Meyer lemon and pear, with each featuring artistically-expressive designs. They are accompanied by a 24-page Garden Meditation Guide, offering poetry, recipes, pictures and even seed paper to plant healing culinary herbs. Basil, rosemary, sage and lavender are among the variety of seeds that may be included in each box. MSRP: $35

“The Garden Box is meant to transport one to a state of peace, calm and inspiration…like a garden!” says Julia Lungin, owner of Chocoveda. “Enjoying a Chocoveda truffle is a sacred experience that starts before you even open the box, and with the opportunity to plant the seed paper and watch it grow, it can last long after the final chocolate is finished.”

Recent winner of the International Chocolate Salon’s 2011 Grand Master Award for Best Chocolatiers in America, Chocoveda’s handmade chocolate truffles are infused with a popular Ayurvedic herb known to ease stress, providing a blissful experience second to none. The Garden Box joins Chocoveda’s popular “Chakra” (MSRP $30) and “Goddess” (MSRP $35) boxes.

Formed in 2009 by Chocolatier and Ayurvedic Practitioner Julia Lungin, Chocoveda takes chocolate to a higher state by blending the finest quality all-natural, organic, vegan, gluten-free, and preservative-free ingredients (sustainable semi-sweet chocolate, organic extra virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, and all-natural and organic flavor oils) with organic ashwagandha, or “Indian Ginseng,” an Ayurvedic healing herb (ancient India’s system of health and wellness). Chocoveda products can be purchased online at, or at Nieman Marcus, The Chopra Center, and other retail boutiques. For more information, visit the website at, or find Chocoveda on Facebook.
