...hundreds of requests to bring customized chocolate bars to Canada...
New York (PRWEB) June 30, 2010
CHOCRI, the world's first company that allows customers to create their own organic and Fair Trade chocolate bars online, expands to Canada today.
Six months after launching the widely popular website createmychocolate.com in the US, the German startup unleashes the aptly titled createmychocolate.ca to accept orders from Canada as well. To celebrate its expansion, chocri is offering a week-long 50% off shipping promo: consumers who place orders for personalized chocolate bars before the end of the day on July 9 will pay 50% less for shipping.
What is chocri? It's Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans in a chocolate bar, minus the less popular earwax and rotten egg varieties. First, you choose a chocolate base (dark, milk, or white) for your bar. Next, select from over 100 toppings ranging from traditional favorites (Nuts! Dried fruit!) to exotic flavors (Chives! Jalapenos! Bacon!) to bold embellishments (Gold flakes! Silver pearls!). Finally, sign your creation with a personalized name printed on the package. Make your own "Happy Birthday" bar, celebrate by giving a "50th Anniversary" bar, or kick back with an "It's 3PM on a Friday, and I Just Don't Care Anymore" bar.
After receiving hundreds of requests to bring customized chocolate bars to Canada, chocri makes those wishes possible with the launch of createmychocolate.ca. "People emailed me and told me that they love the concept and can't wait to order!" says chocri USA CEO and chocolate enthusiast Carmen Magar. "Many websites have sprung up in the last 10 months that let consumers co-create everything from dress shirts to jewelry," Ms. Magar says in between mouthfuls of a custom Chocrilicious bar. "Why not chocolate? Our friends in Canada are certainly ready."
Until they break Willy Wonka's monopoly on eager and harmonizing cacao factory workers, chocri also remains vigilant in its efforts to be a responsible corporate citizen. 1% of all sales of chocri chocolate bars are donated to DIV Kinder, a charity that supports children in Ivory Coast, the biggest exporter of cacao beans. As well, all custom chocolate bars are hand-made with organic, Fair Trade Chocolate from Belgium to be delivered to you on the wings of goodness and freedom (or just by your local postal service).
