Master Makers: Alak Vasa, Element Truffles

Posted on November 02 2017

Forget diamonds; chocolate is truly a girl’s best friend. Nothing is more satisfying after a long day, or a better stress-reliever, than a delicious chocolate bar. Luckily, we have Element Truffles to satisfy our inner foodie cravings all day long.

Owner Alak Vasa funneled her Wall Street experiences into creating a brand that embodies her spiritual side. Inspired by Ayurveda, an alternative form of medicine stemming from Indian culture that focuses on the mind-body connection, Vasa was encouraged to bring the sentiments behind Ayurveda to the public. Located in Jersey City, NJ, the company combines being kind to your soul with being kind to your body, and chocolate is the perfect food to unite both sides.

 “A desire to spread positivity and happiness - one chocolate bar at a time.”

 Sustainably sourced and locally grown, Element Truffles helps makes us feel a little less guilty about indulging in our favorite treats. The brand focuses on the simpler things in life without sacrificing our taste buds (thank goodness). The truffles are skillfully handmade with cacao butter and powder and sweetened solely with honey and infused with super foods like turmeric, ensuring that this chocolate really is food for the body and the soul.

There’s nothing refined or artificial about these treats, making us even more willing to take a bite out of them. Dairy, soy and gluten also don’t have a home in the chocolate, which means any friends who have dietary restrictions or food allergies won’t be left out of the fun.

As if that’s not enough to make your month water, the company donates 25 percent of their profits to, a site that helps foster children’s education. Here at Olives & Grace, we are constantly inspired by brands desire to do good, and we love supporting them along their journey.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift or the perfect midnight snack, Element Truffles is the brand we trust with all of our chocolate needs—no matter how much it fuels our chocolate addiction.
