Chocomize on 6ABC Morning Show Philadelphia

If you’ve been checking out our press page, you‘ll have noticed all the fantastic reviews we’ve been getting. We think our chocolate is the best out there, but we understand if you don’t want to take our word for it.

In addition to the great reviews we’ve been getting lately, we are excited to announce that we will be appearing on a TV show right before Valentine’s Day! 6ABC action news heard about our company and thought that it would be a perfect story for Valentine’s Day (we totally agree) and they dropped by our facility to film us making chocolate. We made some pretty great bars for them, some with edible images of the 6ABC logo, others with some of our special Valentine’s Day ingredients. Speaking of Valentine’s Day ingredients, we have a special shipment coming from Europe which we are going to post soon, and we also just added the always favorite message hearts!The picture to the left is a show of the 6ABC Action News van.


 

So for everyone in the Philadelphia area, we will be on the 6ABC morning show around 6a.m. on the 9th of February. For all those Chocomize fans who are not in the Philadelphia area, we will post the video as soon as possible. Get excited to get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at Chocomize!

 

 

 

Lots of new press

Just wanted to give everyone an update on all the great press we’ve been getting. We recently were visited by the Burlington County Times. Two reporters came to our facility to take pictures of us and our chocolate. They wrote a great article which you can read in our press section. Here’s a picture of them at our facility with us:

In addition, we’ve been featured in a ton of new blogs, including brides.com. Our custom chocolate bars have been really popular as wedding favors. For those of you who don’t know, we can custom design not only the ingredients in our chocolate, but the packaging on the boxes as well! Custom chocolate bars make a really classy and unique gift. If you are planning a wedding in the future, or know someone who is, I recommend checking out our special weddings page here.


Stay tuned for more updates on press, as well as the upcoming ingredient of the week! If you are interested in reading the brides.com blog, or any of the other new blogs, check out our press page.

Chocomize: Design-Your-Own Chocolate Giveaway

Look what showed up at my door towards the end of finals week:

Customized chocolate bars from Chocomize! The company offered to send me some chocolate to review with the giveaway, but I couldn’t decide what combinations to get… everything looked so good! I narrowed it down to a few options, and told them to surprise me. I received two yummy bars.

Milk Chocolate with Gummi Bears and Orange Slices. I thought the combination would be kind of weird, but listed it as one of my choices anyways. As it turns out, I loved this bar! The chewy, sweet orange combined with the smooth chocolate was perfect. My only (slight) issue with the bar was that the gummi bears were a little tough, so I think next time I’d get only orange slices.

The milk chocolate itself was excellent. Velvety-smooth and creamy, it just melted in my mouth.

Dark Chocolate with Crunchy Almond Croquant, Sliced Almonds, and a Chocolate Butterfly. I have three things to say about this bar. First of all, the butterfly was beautiful. Secondly, the dark chocolate was rich and smooth, just the way I like it. And finally, I loved the crunchiness the almond toppings added.

Youthful Tips Blog Review

The following is a recent review of Chocomize from the Youthful Tips Blog. To read the entry on their website, check out our press section for more information.

Valentine’s Day Great Gift Idea 1: Chocomize Customized Chocolate Bar Review & Giveaway

 

 

Wouldn’t it be nice to make your own chocolate with rich, indulging ingredients? If you don’t have the time or just want to try delicious chocolate, you need to visit Chocomize.com to see what they have in store for you!

 

You choose your base chocolate bar:
  • Dark – Their dark chocolate has a robust, well balanced mixture of sweet and bitter flavors. Dark chocolate remains a traditional favorite to European palates. Cocoa content: 56.8%
  • Milk – Their milk chocolate has a balanced milk, cocoa and caramel taste. Milk chocolate is the most popular chocolate amongst American palates. Cocoa content: 33.6%
  • White – Their white chocolate is characterized by a creamy milk taste. For those looking for a smooth alternative to dark or milk chocolate, this is a great option. Cocoa content: 28.1%

The starting price is $3.85 for the dark and milk chocolate option and $3.95 for the white chocolate bar. Each optional added ingredient has its own individual price so pending on what you choose, the cost will be higher than the base bar price.

This is where the fun begins! After you select the type of chocolate you want, you get to choose from 80 different ingredients to select from with a choice of up to five to personalize your very own chocolate creation at the Creation Station:

  • Nuts & Seeds
  • Fruits
  • Herb & Spices
  • Candy
  • Decorations
  • Other

This chocolate caters to anyone! If you want to indulge, you can choose from macadamia nuts, butter toasted peanuts to hazelnuts and add in a little coconut. If you want to stay healthy, flax seed, roasted sunflower seeds and crasisins are good choices. Seasalt is another option which is becoming a hot topic in the good for you health department.

Each bar is hand made and is delivered to you within days! They even donate a portion of proceeds to charity. Chocomize is the creation of three recent college graduates pursuing their passion for chocolate which right there, I’m right there with them! I also find it nice to see such a desire to succeed with an innovative idea as this.

The children will love the Candy option given the options such as gummi bears, jelly beans, peanut chocolate candy and skittles to just name a few.

Decorations add a nice personalized touch to each bar. Whether you choose a chocolate butterfly, 23 karat gold flakes or more, you can’t go wrong with giving a better personalized gift than a customized chocolate bar!

Sign up for the Chocomize’s Chocolate Club and save up to 25%, The Chocolate of the Month Club can be purchased for three months, six months or one full year. Each month, a new assortment of four chocolate bars will arrive. Each bar contains four ingredients and no two bars will be the same. What a great way to try out some tasty creations with an added in surprise!

The Review:

It was fun creating my bar of whatever ingredients I wanted to choose from and I was amazed at the number of spectucular availabilities! It took some time to decide as I wanted to check out everything as I think this is really a great idea to select and create your own chocolate masterpiece. I ended up going with milk chocolate, macadamia nuts and coconut. I wanted to choose a bar that would not only appeal to my tastes but my oldest as she’s the chocolate expert in our house.
 
As promised on their website, Chocomize delivers quickly to your door! The bar was well protected and arrived in this elegant packaging that allows the receiver to see the bar and all the amazing ingredients. I liked the packaging with the nice logo at the bottom which reflects an upscale chocolate product. The back of the box contains the ingredients, nutrition facts and their quality statement that each bar is handmade to order using only premium ingredients and the finest Belgian chocolate. I’ve traveled to many countries for my job and have to say that hands down, I love Belgian chocolate and this bar lives up to the quality, taste and texture expected.

 

The bar is wrapped in a resealable wrapper which makes it nice to not overindulge. Whole macadamia nuts were placed throughout the bar and in just about every bite. There was nothing left out of this delicious tasting bar. It is truly worth the money and has provides that one of kind, personalized touch to anyone.


 
I would recommend Chocomize to anyone regardless of the reason. It’s a great treat for yourself, a wonderful way to say you love someone or are thinking of them or just to say thank you.
