Helena was founded by an extraordinary, inspiring, and sophisticated woman who loved making chocolates for her family and enjoyed gifting them to friends. Everyone raved about her chocolates, they were said to be beyond exquisite...blissful, and out-of-this-world delicious! In 1975, after unending encouragement from everyone in her life, the artisan chocolate maker felt compelled to start Helena Chocolates.
The founder's vision was fueled by her desire to elevate the chocolate experience to an unrivaled level of quality, taste, and sophistication—while nurturing a culture of excellence, inclusiveness, and sustainability. The brand is distinguished by the experience it provides its worldly clientele. An experience born of world-renowned fair-trade cacao, wholesome ingredients, and beautifully designed packaging in harmony with the brand’s iconic elegance. Today, after almost five decades—and having achieved a cult following around the world, Helena continues to elevate the chocolate experience, consistently delivering a chocolate like no other.
