Yay, chocri is getting some great recognition by THE food website in the U.S. and possibly worldwide: Epicurious!
Chosen as one of the few from a vast "flood" (so they say) of Valentine's Day chocolate contenders, here's what Epicurious had to say:
Chocri Customized Chocolate Bars
"If you're having trouble finding just the right chocolate for your special someone, it's time to go custom. Chocri, a German company that recently started filling orders in the U.S., makes customizable bars using organic fair trade chocolate from Belgium (bars start at $3.90). Customers choose dark, milk, or white chocolate, then pick from a selection of 80 plus toppings (there are 10 billion possible combinations). We created three pretty dynamite bars: milk chocolate with roasted almonds, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper; dark chocolate with sour cherries, cornflakes, sea salt, and toasted hazelnuts; and dark chocolate with hazelnut brittle and sea salt. To further personalize your gift, give your bar a name, which will appear on the package."
Speaking of names, here are the Top 5 chocri bar names of the week:
Corn Dog (Milk Chocolate with Colorful Chocolate Dragées and Marshmallow)
Tuscany (Milk Chocolate with Rosemary and Pine Nuts)
The Bling Bar (Dark Chocolate with Real Gold Flakes, Golden Pearls, Silver Pearls and Star Decoration)
Chocolate Thunder (Dark Chocolate with Caramel Chocolate Drops, Marzipan Rose, Golden Pearls, Marshmallow and Mini Cookies)
Dark Chocolate Lovin' | Lights The Fire of Desire (Dark Chocolate with Sour Cherries, Hazelnut Brittle, Strawberry Chocolate Drops, Cayenne Pepper and Black Sesame)
Obviously, a lot of the bar names this week were Valentine's Day themed.
Don't forget, the last day to order for Valentine's Day is February 1!
