Hi and welcome to our blog that is too infrequent! It's our goal to deliver some juicy information to you at least every other week. But we have been incredibly busy with other fun projects that we have had a challenging time keeping up. So we thought we would let you know what we have been up to the past few months...
This summer was busy busy despite a typically slow chocolate season during the summer months. We worked with True Colors in Seattle, providing truffles for seven of their beautifully organized events. It was great fun and here is a photo of the 4-piece boxes that were given to each guest at the table. (Email us if you're interested in this cute box for your event!)
We were also having a good time traveling around with EcoStiletto and Kimpton Hotels sampling nicobella truffles for Green Girl's Night Out. It's an eight-city tour with only two cities left! Come see us in Scottsdale, AZ October 12th or Los Angeles, CA November 16th. Thank you so very much to all of the amazing friends who represented nicobella in each city.
NEW RETAIL PARTNERS
We are super excited to be working with some fantastic new retail partners: Beacon Hill Chocolates in Boston, MA; Sun Life Organics in Malibu, CA; Get Waxed in Venice, CA; Cannon Beach Chocolate Cafe in Cannon Beach, OR; and TSPOT in Manzanita, OR. Go get your healthy nicobella chocolates if you live in these areas!
NEW PACKAGING AND PRODUCTS
This holiday season stay tuned for new new new! New packaging for nicobella truffles (we can't wait for you to see), new labels for nicobella munch and new products to add to our shop. Naked Maple Nut Munch and Naked Mama Munch are so yum! And our new and improved Peanut Butter Squares will melt in your mouth. We can't wait to share with you once we finalize some last minute packaging details.
NICOBELLA ON THE SCREEN
Check out a preview of the very cool film, Liquorice, that features a story around the organic and mysterious drink, Absinthe. The goal of the producers is to make this film 100% sustainable and eco-friendly. We are honored to be a part of it! It's scheduled to release in Sept/Oct 2012.
KALLARI CHOCOLATE & NICOBELLA MUNCH
Starting this week we will be using Kallari chocolate for all of our Munch products. It is delicious! But that is just an added bonus on top of everything this fabulous company represents. Be sure to read more about their story. And expect to get even more amazing flavor with your next Munch purchase. We are excited to work with them!
Finally, and most importantly in our book, we are happy to continue our involvement with animals. We are very excited to donate chocolate this week to the Dash for Desserts event which supports The Chimp Sanctuary Northwest. Next week we will be auctioning our chocolates at the Oak Mountain Winery Woofs & Purrs in the Vines Fundraiser that supports dogs and cats with diabetes. And on November 5th we will be walking for Farm Animals in Pasadena, CA. We want a BIG TEAM!!! Please please if you are in the area come join us! We will be giving a box of chocolates and nicobella t-shirt to everyone who signs up to walk with us. It's for a great cause and our support will show in numbers.
We hope you have a fabulous weekend!
