“When Lady Godiva, wife of Lord Leofric, protested against the taxation of his subjects, she agreed to ride through the streets of Coventry "clad in naught but her long tresses", and so long as the residents remained in shuttered buildings their tax burden would be lifted. The following morning she made her famous ride and, despite being the ultimate temptation, the citizens graciously remained indoors. Leofric kept his word and reduced the taxes to the delight of his subjects, ensuring Godiva's legendary status throughout the centuries.
Nowhere is her passion, pioneering spirit and generosity more symbolized than in an enticing box of Godiva chocolates, created to win the hearts of all those who taste them.”
