.Chocomize: Create Your Own Custom Chocolate Bars

CAPSULE REPORT: Will the next trend in gourmet chocolate be custom-designed chocolate bars?

If so, we’re at the vanguard. We’re thrilled about the new machine that customizes chocolate bars with one’s choice of toppings. Your every desire couldn’t be easier.

Chocomize is one of several custom bar companies we tried recently. We’re in heaven.

You pick the type of chocolate (dark, milk, white), from the fine Belgian producer Barry Callebaut. Then top it with up to 5 selections from almost 100 choices:

  • 17 types of nuts and seeds
  • 18 types of dried fruit
  • 11 sweet and savory spices
  • 24 different types of candy
  • 12 “decorations,” including flower petals,
    gold flakes and birthday greetings
  • 15 “other,” a group of favorites ranging
    from coffee beans to cereals, potato chips and pretzels

Gift certificates are an easy way to make your friends and family happy, too.
