custom chocolate orders

 

After another busy weekend with all of the Father’s Day orders coming in, I couldn’t get the blog updated yesterday (a portion of Monday’s order is shown above) so here we are on Tuesday morning getting ready for another big push for the holiday.

Father’s Day
Have you gotten him anything yet? Go to the Favorites section to order one of our popular pre-made bars (on sale for $5.95), or go to the Creation Station and make your own bar for your gift. Don’t forget to get a greeting card as well!

New Ingredients
As you may have noticed, the ingredients contest is over and you can now add 3 new ingredients to your custom chocolate bars – cookie dough (our new favorite), kit-kat and junior mints. Are any of these your father’s favorite? Don’t worry, you can still place your order and we will have it to you in time for the big day!

PS
Ever heard of National Chocolate Day? It is rapidly approaching and will of course be accompanied by a sale on a special Chocolate-on-Chocolate bar.

 

Until next week,

Jim
