Chocolate Cards by Post – Giveaway #35
Who doesn’t like getting a nice greetings or thank you card? Even better when it is a chocolate greetings card. Scottish company Chocmotif offer a service whereby you can personalise an 80g bar of smooth Belgian milk chocolate with a picture and / or words of your choice printed onto it. Now that is what I call clever. They have a number of different design templates to choose from including inserting your own face into the Mona Lisa, a wanted poster, Keep Calm and Carry On ……. and a keyhole design. It’s definitely worth having a look at their site to see what is on offer.
When the postman knocked on the door, I wasn’t at all sure what to expect. Making the initial selection wasn’t the most straightforward of processes and one of the templates I wanted to use didn’t seem to be working. In the end I went for the simplest of the templates, which was a rectangular picture with your own words. I used a photo of my figgy Victoria sandwich as a thank you for my friend Victoria and a photo of ox-eye daisies from our plot for my gardening fanatic friend Lorna.
As it turned out, I was really happy with the cards I received. In fact I’m really excited by them and now can’t wait to give them to the intended recipients. The quality of the picture printed on the chocolate is excellent. Sadly the same can not be said for the photos I took of the product. The chocolate comes framed within a card forming the inside picture, but is easily removable for consumption. The card itself has an attractive exterior design and comes with a matching gift tag. The whole thing is enclosed in a sturdy card envelope and is very tastefully done. I have to confess, I wasn’t expecting it to be so good. At £5.99 I think this gift represents good value, although it must be noted that postage and packing is extra. It is such an original and fun product, allowing the purchaser to create something unique and personal. Any frustration I experienced at the time of ordering is now forgotten.
I haven’t tried the chocolate, it seemed a bit rude to sink my teeth into somebody else’s bar, so I can’t really comment on the quality. However, it is Belgian couverture with a 30% cocoa solids content. It is also nut and gluten free, which is a big plus for those with allergies who often find it difficult to source suitable chocolate. The printing is all done with edible food dyes and the ingredients are listed on the envelope.
