August 27th marks the first year anniversary of the launch of Chocology Unlimited! Won’t you reminisce with us? It’s been quite a year and our goal of educating, giving back and growing the business has been a wonderful success! We want to thank all of our readers, customers and charity organizations for being a part of the Chocology team. We know that without you, Chocology wouldn’t be where it is today.
So what is Chocology most proud of accomplishing this year?
At Chocology, we are interested in all aspects of chocolate. We are committed to and love the study of chocolate – extending that love and knowledge to you in a new and exciting way is our mission.
Educating through blogging and our Face Book page: We love bringing you articles that inspire and inform you about all things chocolate. Through blogging, we can reach so many people from around the world and share what we know and learn about chocolate. Together we now have over 1,500 Followers and Likers. Thank you!
Farmer’s Markets – Teaching people how to taste chocolate and informing them on the different types of chocolate has been a fun and tasty way to keep the public up to date on what they eat.
U.N. International Day of Peace – Chocology sent out the ingredients for making peace pops to children around the country. Kids were encouraged to make their pops and share International Day of Peace with others in their community. Since then we were invited to collaborate with "Pathways to Peace" this year.
Our goal of giving back to the community has been such a gift to us. We think we’ve hit the mark in this area and here’s how:
We had so much fun on our Chocology Give’s Back Road trip this past spring, we got to do workshops with lots of kids and spend time with each of the non-profit organizations we help support!
Chocology Cares Campaign: We know that when we give we will always have everything we need. Our Chocology Cares campaign has been a huge success and we are so happy to be helping out some good causes. If you’d like to help these charities, simply order our Fat Ass Fudge. We love helping great organizations that are making a difference in the world.
Atria Senior Living – We enjoy our time with seniors. Our workshop entitled, “Chocolate Lover’s Fest,” is always well attended and we remain in awe of how willing the people are to learn in their latter years.
Reaching our Goals
Making fine quality chocolate available to everyone and allowing chocolate lovers the opportunity to experience the delights generally reserved for the connoisseurs. Everyone gets excited about chocolate and with that, it becomes easy to educate and give back.
Launched the website in September 2014 – Chocology's approach started and remains to treat each customer with a high level of personal service while maintaining quality and variety.
Acquired Fat Ass Fudge – In November, Chocology completed the deal to acquire our much-loved Fat Ass Fudge. Since then, we have developed new flavors and done hundreds of taste tests for feedback. We’ve also loved utilizing this product to promote our charity organizations.
Participated in lots of events – Chocology has reached its goal of getting out to as many people as possible through many festivals, local events, charity events and our farmer’s markets.
Launched our Weddings by Chocology – Lots of brides and grooms have chosen our chocolates as wedding favors for their special day. We love being a part of a partnership that is beginning to blossom.
Corporate Clients --Chocology handles large orders on a regular basis to corporate clients. This has ranged from the delivery of a single plates of chocolate or fudge to corporate clients and employees to thousands of fudge samples for convention give-aways.
We are so proud of what Chocology has been able to accomplish in this first year and we thank you for making it a success! We look forward to many more years of fun, education, giving back and chocolate. We hope you’ll follow us into our second year. Thank you.
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
