Giant Truffles Promise Good Love and Sex for Christmas
LONG ISLAND, New York (December 15, 2007) - Herbal aphrodisiacs infused into dark chocolate truffles are reportedly stimulating libidos and pleasing palates everywhere. Chocolix, a new chocolate company, is hand crafting their giant herbal truffles day and night to meet a larger-than-expected demand for what chocolatier/herbalist Victor Krisman admits is “an extravagant candy gift, enjoyable self-indulgence and healthy pleasure.”
According to Mr. Krisman, company founder, “we add generous amounts of powerful herbal formulas that modify your mood. We’ve developed techniques to modify strong herbal flavors and blend them with dark chocolate ganaches (a mixture of chocolate and heavy cream).” The company’s recipes and techniques borrow heavily from ancient and current herbal knowledge along with old world European traditions of chocolate making. Using all fresh and natural ingredients limits them to a two-week shelf life. "We had a choice: to change our formulas and have our truffles produced in a factory, or craft our recipes by hand - we continue to hand make our chocolates.”
According to Dr.Mehmet Oz, Oprah’s medical guru, “Flavonoids are these really powerful, vitamin-like substances that when you eat them, guess what they do? They dilate the arteries of the body,” Dr. Oz said on the show. “We actually have data that they may be beneficial to the heart. So a little bit of dark chocolate is a wonderful dessert.”
The company was formed early in 2007 to create good tasting mediums to deliver health-encouraging herbs. The initial motivation was to solve a personal health problem. “My fiancee needed to take herbs for menopause and her only choices were pills or terrible tasting liquids. This inspired me to join two long-time hobbies, traditional herbal remedies and chocolate crafting, to create Chocolate Elixirs.” Word of mouth expanded this hobby into a part-time job and then 60 hour weeks refining and producing the products. While Krisman is pleasantly surprised at the passionate demand for his products, his customers are not alone. The fortified and functional chocolate confectionery segment is poised for meteoric growth, with global sales now at $131.2 million and forecast to increase 114.2% by 2010.

Chocolix is accepting orders for Christmas delivery until December 20th. Prices for the extra-large truffles start at $9.50 for a 2-piece Good Love Pack. For more information, or to order, go to www.chocolix.com.
