The Chocology team wants to express many thanks to all of the wonderful people we have crossed paths with this past year.
Through our Chocology Give’s Back Road Trip, farmers markets, multiple events and customers we have learned one thing. We never meet a stranger! Everyone we have met has been remarkable ~ from sea to shining sea.
We’d also like to express our gratitude to those who have made Chocology even better by teaming up with us. Lavender Fields gave us a cozy “home” for our chocolates. Shark tank invited us to the Sprout National Sales Conference, where we had the opportunity to share our business practices with budding sales men and women. A special thanks to Security-Net. Their purchase pushed us over the top allowing us to make a $3,000 donation to Caterina's Club. What a joy it is to work with such wonderful organizations!
YOU have made our year extraordinary! We are grateful for the opportunity to share our products and educate the public about all things chocolate. We hope you’ve learned more about chocolate than you knew last year. We plan to continue bringing you interesting chocolate facts for years to come.
As an ending to a momentous year and happy holiday season, Shark Tank will be running a Christmas night special featuring the episode on Fat Ass Fudge. We invite you to watch and share the joy that Chocology feels in carrying out the legacy of the brilliant Donna McCue, founder of Fat Ass Fudge. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide this product under the Chocology name and want to extend a special offer in celebration of the Fat Ass journey. Order Christmas day through December 26th to receive 10% off of your Fat Ass order. Please use the coupon code SHARKTANK at checkout.
Here’s wishing you and yours a happy holiday season filled with family, fun and chocolate!

Many of you know of the Chocology Cares campaign that we created earlier in the year. When you, our customer, buy Fat Ass Fudge, a portion of the proceeds goes towards helping one of our three chosen charities. Chocology is committed to giving back to the community and helping those in need. Caterina’s Club is one of those organizations.
We are so pleased to announce that Chocology had the honor of presenting a $3,000 check to Chef Bruno of the Anaheim White House Restaurant in Anaheim, CA for Caterina's Club this past week. Chef Bruno’s “Welcome Home” program helps families climb out of poverty and into a proper home. Thanks to our loyal customers and one big donor, an Anaheim family will have a new and safe place to live!
The $3,000 is enough to help a family that has fallen on hard times pay the first and last month rent on an apartment. In many cases, these families have been living with their children in unsafe motel living conditions for quite some time.
In order for a family to qualify for the “Welcome Home” program, one guardian must be employed for at least six months and there must be at least two children living in the household. These requirements ensure that children are lifted out of unsafe living conditions and that the family will be able to maintain rent payments each month. One by one, Chef Bruno is literally giving families a new lease on life!
Having a home means that children have a kitchen, clean bathrooms, a bedroom and a safe outdoor environment to play in ~ something many of us take for granted. You can be a part of this wonderful movement simply by eating chocolate! With the holidays right around the corner, we at Chocology hope to sell enough fudge to help another family in Anaheim! Your order of Fat Ass Fudge truly makes a positive impact on the world!
We truly thank YOU for helping Chocology make a difference in the world! Together, we can continue to change the lives of others for the better. . .

Making Fat Ass fudge, and lots of it!
We at Chocology believe in the ripple effect. Drive through the tollbooth in your city sometime and give the operator a smile from the heart. Then look in your rear view mirror! Is everyone behind you now smiling? That’s how the ripple effect works and at Chocology we love to create those kinds of ripples in the world!
So, how do we do it? How do we sow the seeds of love wherever we can?
Well, we have a very special ingredient that goes into every ounce of fudge that we craft. That ingredient is ~
Love is contagious and spreads far and wide. When you love what you do it’s natural that love flows into it. At Chocology, love is at the forefront of everything we do and we hope that the people who enjoy our fudge can taste it!
This week, from sea to shining sea (or from New York to California), Chocology spreads the love with Fat Ass Fudge. After shipments of fudge are sent off to customers around the country, Chocology heads to Anaheim to deliver fudge and make a donation to Caterina’s Club.
Last week we started out by filling an order for Security Net. They will be passing out our Fat Ass Fudge at their Security Conference in Anaheim, CA this week. We wish them a successful conference and thank them for their order. This sale enables us to donate $1,000 to Caterina's Club in Anaheim, California, one of our Chocology Cares recipients. This one sale will get us a third of the way towards our goal of $3,000 to "get a family a home”. We love helping others and are so grateful to Security Net for helping us reach our intent to change the world through chocolate.
Next, we made fudge S’mores for an upcoming Texas wedding, with a portion of that also going towards our Chocology Cares campaign. Congratulations Jessica and Jason! We hope your special day is as special as the two of you and that the love that you share will grow and spread to everyone you encounter.
Don't forget, for every order of fudge we receive, we will give back to one of our Chocology Cares organizations! Who knew eating fudge could benefit so many?
Finally, it was off to make fudge for our dear friends at Operation Freedom Paws, who will be supporting and sharing fudge with their friends at DreamPower Horsemanship! Now that’s paying it forward in action!
We are continuously collecting shoes for Back On My Feet--their Fat Ass Rocky 50K run is in Philadelphia on December 5, 2015. We’re hoping to supply lots of running shoes for their big event. A big thanks to all who have donated so far!
And finally, when we arrive back from Anaheim, we’re off to the Merry Merfolk Festival in Greenport, NY, Saturday September 26 . This Festival will be benefiting the Cornell Cooperative Extension with its Suffolk County Marine Program.
Sunday, of course, we will participate in the Farmer's Market in Port Jefferson.
From sea to shining sea, Chocology put’s its focus on bringing love to all that we meet. We hope you’ll join us in sowing the seeds of love this week!
