The Celestial Flavors of Galaxy Desserts

We bumped into Galaxy Desserts just a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco for the Winter Fancy Food Show. The aroma of fresh bread, chocolate and fruity combination was just totally over-the-top luscious! A closer inspection at the booth suggested that everything was all natural, handcrafted and trans-fat free… Even better, right? The mousse they showcased were a sight to behold and we loved how they prominently featured the bouquet-esque arranged macarons stands. Beautiful colors and delicious flavors, this was certainly a galaxy I wanted my taste buds to orbit around on and on…

Buttery and mouth-watering… These Croissants have been an in-demand item at the Wiliams Sonoma stores and are also one of Oprah’s Favorite Things…

If I get married again, I’d like to have this as my engagement party bouquet…

A great way to start pamper yourself at the end of a busy work day… The chocolate lava cake has a divine molten fudge center! Yum!

<—–We also loved this! We could wrap this up in kisses as the dark chocolate ribbon suggests. A sexy dessert that is filled with a light creamy chocolate mocha mousse topped with an “oh-so-yummy” fudge… Romance has never tasted this good!

The decision is unanimous! We all are in love with Galaxy Desserts and psyched to meet the founder Chef Jean-Yves Charon and President Paul Levitan soon to find out more about their company and humble beginnings. As a leader in high-end, all-natural individual desserts including mousse cakes, cheesecakes, tarts, crèmes and pastries, Galaxy Desserts crafts delicious gourmet experiences with exquisite French-inspired indulgences. The Company, which was founded in 1998, is privately held and headquartered in Richmond, Calif.

Their products have been featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and on the covers of Neiman Marcus holiday catalogs. Galaxy Desserts’ Co-Founder and Pastry Chef Jean-Yves Charon was also profiled in the Williams-Sonoma Holiday catalogue. Their products are available at select grocery stores throughout the country in the Bakery Case, and in Galaxy Desserts-branded packaging in both the Freezer and Grab-n-Go case.
