About the Brand

Dýr, meaning "animal" in Old Norse and pronounced "deer/dear", is a creation of love. Sculptor Manya Tessler carves the original bar prototype out of wax and infuses the sculpture with an animal's physical and meta-physical aspects. Each chocolate bar design carries a different meaning, inspired by the symbolism that various cultures have ascribed to animals over the years. After the prototypes are completed, food-grade molds of the carvings are poured with the highest quality, most luscious dark chocolate, and hand-painted with colored sugar and cocoa butter. Dýr Chocolates donates 5% of profits to local animal charities in an effort to give back to its main inspiration.
