Godiva chocolate is named after a bold and brave noble's wife who rode bareback through town on a challenge from her husband â€” but here, "bareback" doesn't refer to the horse lacking a saddle. Lady Godiva was bare for all but her long, luxurious locks of hair. In exchange, her husband was to ease his cruel tax burden. Godiva symbolizes boldness, beauty, and timeless value â€” as do the chocolates. Godiva chocolate is an equal-opportunity chocolatier, making chocolates of all shapes and colors; even bundling them together in delectable collections. It's the perfect treat for holidays, special occasions or just happening to spot a location in the mall.
