For the person who meditates or does yoga, consider a gift of Sushumna chocolate. This line of “chakra-choc” includes seven flavors that correlate to the seven major energy points (chakras) in the body developed.
Hindus refer to the chakras as the intersections of energy lines. One of them, sushumna, leads to the crown chakra, and is said to be the path to self-realization.
Will these flavored chocolates lead you there? No promises are made, but at 30 calories per tile, anyone can enjoy a tile or two daily to find out.
What is the Chakra-Chocolate correlation?
According to the owners, on the chakra Ladder, these energy points are represented by color, emotive and physical attributes. They found natural correlations to these attributes among various nuts, spices, herbs and essences that they then married to chocolate.
The creators describe their chakra-based chocolates:
Compassionate: Sweet dried cherries provide a burst of dark, luscious fruit flavor to complement the 70% dark chocolate. An explosion of flavor reminds you to keep your heart open.
Connected: Transform that “fire in your belly” into positive action with this sumptuous vanilla bean and white chocolate infusion. The universal aroma and flavor of pure vanilla blended with white chocolate strengthens and soothes this fiery, action-oriented power chakra.
Expressive: Vibrant, refreshing peppermint and 70% dark chocolate vivify this chakra and strengthen your innate ability to know and speak your truth.
Grounded: The warm, earthy flavors of sweet potato pie are blended with the familiar crunch of crisped rice, and swathed in luscious, smooth milk chocolate. This medley was created to help focus and realign your connection with the earth and all that’s primal through the “root chakra.”
Insightful: This blend of port-soaked currants with 70% dark chocolate captures the mystery and wonder of intuition. Help strengthen and balance your “third eye” chakra for a new perspective and way of seeing the world.

Sensual: Cardamom, nutmeg and a whisper of cinnamon are blended into chai chocolate. Spices, a touch of heat and milk chocolate stimulate your second chakra—the energetic portal of the senses, and the source of creativity.
Transcendant: A savory blend of hemp oil, exotic mushroom extract, rich raw cashews, and silky milk chocolate which help you connect to your crown chakra: the connection to the cosmos and spirit.
