Athena Partners, known for its Athena bottled water, has added chocolate to the battle against breast cancer. One hundred percent of Athena Partners’ net profits from the premium chocolate brand – Athena Chocolate – will support breast cancer research and education.

The chocolates debuted this month and are available for purchase in more than 1,000 retail outlets and online.

The Seattle-based firm was founded by Trish May, of Medina.

Athena Chocolates are specially created for Athena Partners by chocolatier Dilettante Chocolates.

“Athena is empowering everyone to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer through the purchase of delicious Athena products,” said Trish May, Athena Partners founder and a breast cancer survivor. “Athena Chocolate is the only premium chocolate brand that devotes one hundred-percent of company profits to the cause year-round. Every chocolate sold brings us closer to a cure, and together, we can make a difference!”

The Athena Chocolate brand launched with two signature offerings, with plans to expand the line in the coming month with new items. The two initial offerings are both made from dark chocolate rich in antioxidants, and include:

Athena Cherries in Premium Dark Chocolate: Northwest Bing cherries surrounded by 61-percent premium dark cacao. Each 24 oz. bag contains 102 cherries.

Athena Chocolate Truffles: All-natural dark chocolate truffles made with 55-percent cacao and all-natural cherry flavor. Available in individually wrapped truffles in a 4 oz. box with 12 pieces, or in a 24 oz. jar containing 72 truffles.
