Store Spotlight: Chocomize
What It Is
What would you say if we told you that someone could take chocolate, and make it better? Sounds impossible, right? We thought so, too. Watch as Chocomize makes us eat our words (and some pretty awesome chocolate, too.)
The chocolate bar of your dreams becomes a reality when you enter Chocomize’s Creation Station. Start with your choice of a 3.5 oz Belgian chocolate bar made from dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate. From there, you can choose up to 5 toppings from an assortment of over 100 ingredients. Included in the category line-up are Nuts & Seeds, Fruits, Herbs & Spices, Candy, Decorations and “Other” (with choices like potato chips, caramel popcorn and yes, even bacon!)
What about a milk chocolate bar with sour patch kids, cantaloupe melon dices, pop rocks, beef jerky and a candle on top, you ask? Chocomize says, Done!
Not sure what to pick? Chocomize has several popular flavors already created for you. Here’s a look at their Trail Mix bar (the raisins means it “healthy”, right??)
The cost of your custom chocolate bar varies. The base price for just the chocolate bar alone will set you back just $3.95. The cost of ingredients adds to the price and varies. With the addition of something like crushed peppermint candy, it’ll cost $0.50, whereas a more fancier ingredient (like 23k gold flakes) will add $3.25.
Shipping is a flat fee of only $4.95 within the US, and $16.95 to Canada, no matter how many chocolate bars you decide to load up on.
Why We’d Use It
Come on, it’s chocolate. Who doesn’t like chocolate? Need more reasons? Okay. Not only does Chocomize let you pick your own ingredients, but as of January, they’ll even print an image of your choice onto the chocolate bar (or wrapper, if you prefer.) A JoeShopping chocolate bar, anyone?
Chocomize also offers a Chocolate of the Month Club. Choose from 3 months, 6 months or a full year of having four custom chocolate bars delivered each month to your waiting, watering mouth.
We can see this being a big hit with kids, too. That wide-eyed happy look on their faces that they get when decorating cookies during the holidays or piling toppings on their sundaes at an ice cream bar can be duplicated when kids click away on the Chocomize website (making, no doubt, their very own “Teeth Rot” special.) Chocomize does for kids what Willy Wonka only dreamed of, without all the creepy, life-threatening shenanigans and super scary little orange slaves men. *shudders*
