The ritualized use of sweets, primarily in the form of calorie-laden desserts, to mark the special occasions in our lives is an activity that can engender the conflicting emotions of guilt and pleasure. New selections from Galaxy Desserts (415.459.3537, www.galaxydesserts.com) of San Rafael, Calif., just might lessen the anguish for those concerned about carbohydrates.

Galaxy now offers what it calls “low-carb luxury” to go along with its more traditional treats. Selections include a chocolate swirl cheesecake and a dark chocolate mousse cake. For those not beholden to the latest diet regimen, the full line of delicacies remains, including the chocolate truffle marquise, a dessert so rich its appeal can be described only as cosmic.
