Top This Chocolate Offers Customized Artisanal Chocolate
Just in time for the Valentine’s Day, customers can create the perfect gift: a chocolate treat that’s fully customizable, from the unique toppings to the packaging.
JANUARY 21, 2015 – Top This Chocolate has officially launched, and now you can go online to create personalized chocolate bars, squares, or hearts. You can order any chocolate concoction that you crave: a milk chocolate bar with peanut butter chips and pretzels, dark chocolate hearts with cranberries and pistachios, or white chocolate squares with gummy bears and rainbow sprinkles . . . the options are practically limitless.
Shana Elson, founder of Top This Chocolate, was frustrated with the lack of options to satiate her nightly chocolate fix and decided to take matters into her own hands. She left her unfulfilling day job as an attorney and went to business school to learn how to better market and sell her creations (she trained as a chocolatier and pastry chef on weekends). While in her MBA program at the University of Southern California, she won the $25,000 first place prize in the Women’s New Venture Pitch Competition for this novel chocolate concept.
Elson is excited to offer her handmade personalized chocolates to people around the country. “Before Top This Chocolate, the only chocolate that was available was whatever came off the factory floor. If you liked almonds, you were in luck, but if you preferred banana chips with coconut, there was nowhere to turn,” Elson said. It’s easy to mix and match your perfect chocolate and topping combination at TopThisChocolate.com. After selecting a type of premium chocolate (milk, white, or dark), you choose from over 50 toppings (including nuts; dried fruit; an assortment of candy, cookies and cereal; and a variety of salty snacks). Then it’s poured by hand into a bar, squares, or hearts. Want an extra personal touch? Spell out a name in chocolate letters, or add a chocolate plaque with a message.
