New York Street Fair

berry_bar_packaging2

Chocomize is heading to the big city this weekend! The extremely handsome owners are going to be participating in a New York Street fair. We will be selling some of our favorite chocolate bars including our smores bar, summer bar, berry bar, and a bunch of other different combinations we thought would be pretty tasty. If you’re going to be in NY, come by and say hello. We will be located on Lexington Avenue between 23rd and 30th street. It will be pretty easy to spot us, we’ll be the guys with all the chocolate! Can’t wait to see and meet some of our friends.

Official Chocomize Ingredients Poll

Over the past couple of weeks we have gotten a lot of suggestions for new ingredients. As always, we don’t want to keep these suggestions to ourselves but rather ask you what you would like to customize your chocolate bars with! So here it is… The official ‘Chocomize Ingredient Addition Poll’. Have fun!

Addition to the Chocomize Team

jim

What’s hotter than summer 2010? Chocomize would like to introduce summer intern Jim Brown to the staff. Jim hails from Valley Forge, PA and is a member of the Columbia Lightweight Rowing Team and Malta Boat Club on historic Boathouse Row on the Schuylkill River. Aside from enjoying time here at Chocomize and rowing, Jim spends time playing with his dog Rosie and going to the Jersey Shore with friends in the summer. His first custom chocolate bar creation featured peanut butter drops and cranberries and hopefully he will bring some enthusiastic energy to the already hard-working Chocomize team.

Ingredient Contest

Over the past month we’ve been getting a lot of requests and suggestions for ingredients that we should add to our website. We wish that we could add all of them but unfortunately that would be almost impossible (there have just been too many.) Here are six of the most requested ingredients in the past month. We can’t decide on which ones too add, so we’re going to let you guys do it for us. Vote in the comments section for your favorite ingredient, and recommend some to add to the list. We’ll add four more to this list and then the top three most popular will be added to our website!

 


puffed rice

black liquoriceBlack Licorice: This delicious candy is made from the extract of the licorice root. It’s extremely delicious on its own, but tastes even better in a custom chocolate bar.

 


Puffed Rice: Puffed rice is exactly what it sounds like…puffed rice. It’s pretty popular in a lot cereals and adds a great texture to your personalized chocolate bar.


kit katKit Kat: This popular candy bar consists of a wafer covered in chocolate. We would break the bar up into parts and place it throughout your Chocomize bar.220px-swedishfish

 


Swedish Fish: Swedish fish were actually invented by a Finish company but have been marketed in the US by a Swedish company. It’s kind of confusing to us, but either way it would be awesome for you chocolate candy bar.


junior mints

 

Junior Mints: Junior mints are a popular candy that has a mint filling surrounded by dark chocolate. Here’s a fun fact: over 15 million are produced each day (a little more than the amount of Chocomize made each day…)

cookie dough bits



Cookie Dough: This is a popular addition for ice cream and would be a great ingredient for your chocolate bar. We would use cookie dough bites, the popular candy usually sold in movie theatres.
