We’re packing for our cross-country road trip coming up on April 17th. Can you guess what’s at the top of my suitcase list?
Books of course!
What’s a fun trip without books? I have four piled up and what do you suppose all four books have in common?
They’re all about chocolate, naturally . . .
My reading list:
On the Chocolate Trail, by Rabbi Deborah R. Prinz
Raising the Bar, by Pam Williams
The Science of Good Cooking, Guy Crosby, Ph.D
Your Brain on Food, Gary L. Wenk
Will you be traveling with us in our virtual backseat? If so, what books will you bring? Tell us all about it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We’re looking forward to having you with us on this cross-country adventure! Let’s get packing . . .
Easter is finally here and we’d like to congratulate the winner of our 5-POUND giant Easter bunny–Lisa Kikolaides! Will she eat the ears first?
Lisa, we hope you enjoy your white chocolate bunny and we want to remind you not to eat it all at once! Thank you for your orders and we look forward to serving up more chocolate to you in the future.
In celebration of spring, we’d like to invite you to play a game with us. Starting tomorrow, we will be providing clues on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram regarding an exciting announcement to be revealed in next week’s blog post. Can you guess what we’re up to?
Follow our posts on social media and then make a guess in the comments, Facebook or Twitter. Next, check back on April 7, when we’ll broadcast what’s next for Chocology!
ALSO – Join us later this week at a to be named Port Jefferson eatery for another Chocology Act of Kindness event. Our mission is to offer our chocolates to the first 20 customers who are willing to pledge an act of kindness. All you have to do is pledge to do an act of kindness on our Facebook page and we’ll give you…you guessed it… a Chocology Easter Bunny! We’ll announce the restaurant tomorrow on Facebook and Twitter. We hope you’ll join us in spreading kindness this Easter holiday.
Wishing you and yours a lovely Easter weekend!

Gratitude ~ the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness
We talk a lot about gratitude in the month of November. We all try to make an extra effort to count our blessings, do for others and pay closer attention to all that we have. It’s important to make this effort in every day life, and we’ve found at Chocology that it is especially important to practice gratitude in our day-to-day business dealings.
Having a gratitude practice can paint a new picture on a chaotic day. Starting and running a business can bring challenges that aren’t expected at times. When we make it a point to shift our focus to what is working, rather that what is challenging, it feels as though we are swimming with the flow of life. By integrating an attitude of gratitude into our business practices, we make better decisions, even in the chaos of a challenging day.
Focusing on gratitude grounds Chocology and keeps us zeroed in on giving. When we feel abundant, we feel as though we have lots to give. Our focus becomes about giving good service, good quality products and building strong relationships. We don’t have time to dwell on the things that don’t go our way, because we know that there is always another door up there on the horizon just waiting for us to walk through it. When we appreciate all of the good things that are happening, it seems to bring us even more.
Chocology prides itself on making chocolate personal. Our vision is RED
, putting our focus on R
ducation and D
istinct products. All of these qualities arise from the gratitude we have for our customers and vendors. While the bottom line is important, when we put our focus on giving, the bottom line takes care of itself.
We operate Chocology just as we operate our personal lives. We start our day with gratitude for our customers, our readers and all of our vendors and products. Our purpose is to bring great products and education to all that desire it and to appreciate every step we take to get there.
We thought it might be nice to share some of the things that Chocology is very grateful for this month. We hope that it will inspire you to stop for a moment and think about what you are grateful for. Being thankful is the first step to creating a brand new day filled with all of our hearts desires. It really does begin with perspective. Let’s cultivate an attitude of gratitude together this month.
Chocology is especially grateful for:
YOU our customers and readers
For the opportunity to share our love for all things chocolate
For all of our outstanding vendors, technical people and associates who help us make Chocology a company we are proud of
For our new Fat Ass Fudge products (We know you’re going to love them!)
For the potential to bring education to kids through Chocology Kids
For all of our pet friends out there and the opportunity to develop products that they will enjoy in the future
For all of our family and friends, who support us on this lovely chocolate adventure
We truly are thankful for the opportunity to share our passion with you. Thank you for being a part of our Chocology family. We wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving.
