Introducing: The chocri Recommendation Engine!

Say hello to something very cool - the chocri Recommendation Engine! As you design your own chocolate bar, it suggests you toppings based on:

  • What you choose so far (base chocolate and toppings)
  • What other customers ordered previously 

So thousands and thousands of previous orders now inform our recommendations, that help you make a killer bar.

Which still shouldn’t keep you from experimenting and creating a bar that has never existed before (easily possible with 27 billion of different chocolate bars!) - remember the 100% money back guarantee. If you don’t like it, we give you your money back!

Play with it, it’s fun!

Hershey’s Create-Your-Own Chocolate Attraction

I’ve gotten two emails about this today (which is wonderful), so I thought this might be of interest to all of you as well: 

Tomorrow, Hershey’s opens a new attraction in their fun park, Chocolate World: the Create Your Own Candy Bar Attraction.

Sounds familiar?

Obviously, we’ve been allowing people to create their own chocolate bars since 2008 in Germany and since earlier this year in the US. Another German chocolate maker, Ritter Sport, has a store in Berlin where you can create your own chocolate bar right there and then (read a German review here). I wouldn’t be surprised if Hershey’s got some inspiration from us and them. 

So what’s my reaction to this? I love it! I think this is one of the best things that could have happened to the customized candy world - a big player is endorsing it!

In the attraction, visitors will get to make their own bar for $14.95, which allows them to choose the different ingredients and pull different levers, and in the end to take their own bar home with them. I think it’s a really cute idea, and I’m expecting it to create a lot of buzz. And what’s better for us than people searching for “create your own chocolate bars” on Google? Hello! We’re here, and we’re happy to put our nearly 2 years of expertise at work to make a bar for you and deliver it to your doorstep - no pulling of levers required. :)

Thanks Hershey’s for getting the word out. I’d love to chat sometime about custom chocolate if you’re open to that - just let me know at carmen @ chocri.com :)

Our new Topping of the Month - The Noghl Almond!
A Persian delicacy, the Noghl Almond is made by coating roasted almonds  in a mixture of sugar and rose water. Just like chocri bars, Noghl  Almonds are a popular wedding favor. Well, at least in Persia. They are  really hard to get in the US, so take advantage of our topping of the  month and add Noghl Almonds to your customized chocolate bar!

My first chocri order

daryn:

After meeting Carmen from Chocri last night, I was inspired to finally place my first order of their create-your-own chocolate bars.

Here’s what I came up with:

A Devilish Date - Dark Chocolate with Ground Chili, Fleur de Sel, Orange Pepper and Date Bits

Garden Tea Party - Milk Chocolate with Strawberry, Organic Chamomile and Organic Mint Leaves

What do you think?

Very creative names! I have a feeling they’ll show up on Friday in my “Top 5 Bar Names of the Week” post ;)

A SXSW Story:
Gary Vaynerchuk made chocolate bars with chocri (see below - amazing bars) to give away at his #secretwineparty - and then Leo Laporte and Robert Scoble and Kevin Rose came by - and tried it too :)
Very happy-making. Thank you @garyvee for designing chocolate bars with us and allowing me to bring them along!

Carmen from Chocri made the Dave Lifson bar! Dark chocolate with date bits, orange, fleur de sel, ground chili, and real gold flakes. Time to rip it open and eat it (for lunch!) with the help of the most excellent SoupSoup (sitting on my left).

Isnt’ it beautiful? Based on this
