We’re not sure why Joseph Draps named his Belgium chocolate manufacturing company after the legendary Lady Godiva. Maybe the tale of the 11th-century noblewoman who rode a horse unclad to protest unfair taxes was popular in Europe in 1926. Or not.

One thing we do know is Godiva Chocolatier is famous for its fine chocolate products, including a new special-edition series for the spring season. The elaborately decorated boxes hold a variety of classy treats – truffles, ganaches, caramels, cordials, pralines, nuts, fruits and more ($15 to $60).

Find them at Godiva stores at the Galleria in Roseville (916-788-4292) and Arden Fair Mall (916-649-1906). Or order online at www.godiva.com.
