Sky Is the Limit as NOKA Chocolate Unveils Sky Collection™

NOKA Chocolate Rises to New Level of Luxury With Icon of Taste and Design

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2007 -- NOKA Chocolate, ranked the 'Best Chocolate in America' by The Nikkei and the '#1 Luxury Chocolate in the World' by the food editors of TASTE, has unveiled its most significant work of art to date in its worldwide debut of the SKY Collection.

Towering 1.5 feet high with a total structure weight of 17 pounds, the SKY Collection contains 224 dark chocolate pieces from NOKA's Vintages Collection™ and 24 handcrafted truffles from its Grand Cru Collection™. It consists of 10 precision laser-cut, brushed stainless-steel keepsake Signature Boxes™. This sleek, architecturally stunning contemporary design presents fine single-estate dark chocolates and truffles created with cacao sourced from exclusive plantations around the world.

NOKA designed the SKY Collection as a tribute to Howard Roark, the fictional hero in author Ayn Rand's classic novel The Fountainhead. Like Roark's unique, uncompromising, creative vision, NOKA's SKY Collection stands up boldly against established conventions.

"We developed the SKY Collection in response to requests from customers who wanted to make the ultimate gift-giving statement," said Noah Houghton, president of NOKA Chocolate. "For those with discerning taste, this unique collection has an immediate and powerful visual impact that perfectly complements the sensuous aromas, tastes and textures of our chocolates and truffles."

The SKY Collection offers a connoisseur's paradise from the Vintages Collection, a compilation of the finest, single-estate dark chocolates (minimum 75% cacao) that reveals the true essence of the chocolates' origins and provides a journey through the finest cacao regions in the world: Venezuela, Ecuador, Ivory Coast and Trinidad. The Grand Cru Collection includes handcrafted truffles made with rare, single-estate dark chocolate and fresh organic cream.

Tasting guidelines and flavor profiles that outline the unique flavors of each estate and the optimal process of tasting are included in each box.

The suggested retail price of the SKY Collection is $1,023 plus tax and shipping. It is available for purchase online at or by calling 877.270.8209.
