This year marks the 40th anniversary of Chaka Khan’s career in music and entertainment. To celebrate this achievement, the 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer is set to debut an exclusive line of chocolates named “Chakalates” and her line of scented candles, called “Khana Sutra.”
Available just in time for Valentine’s Day, she’s debuting both products this weekend at the Grammy Gift Lounge in Los Angeles.
The health-conscious icon, who recently battled diabetes and high blood pressure by losing 75 pounds and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, set out to make a candy that was both delicious and healthy. Chakalates are made from Chaka’s recipe of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, which are renowned for their blood pressure lowering ability.
Her Khana Sutura candles are made with natural soy wax, and the lead-free wicks for long lasting and clean burning candles. The inspiration for her candles comes from her ritual of lighting a candle whenever she enters a hotel room to “purify” the space.
