A Personalised Chocolate Card You Say....? Yucoco!

I love chocolate. White, dark, milk, melted, chunks, flaked... I'll take it any which way! When I heard about Yucoco, I got a tad excited. Seriously. Yucoco are a 'make your own chocolate bar in a card' company or, as they describe themselves, a handmade chocolate creations company.

I was offered the opportunity to sample their personalisation service in order to share my opinions with you so here goes...

User-friendly website.
Well, not so much on your mobile phone. Whip out the lappy though and you've got a swift, easy step-by-step process to follow in order to make your perfect sweet treat. You can also see exactly how much it costs along the way - great if you're on a budget.


Broad variety of flavours and toppings.
If you like jelly sweets, fruit, nuts or even spices then you can create your ideal bar without a doubt. I opted for the Milk Chocolate Bar with an "I love YU!" plaque, a dark chocolate button, pink chocolate lips, some homemade salted caramel and finished it off with a bit of chilli chocolate drizzle. You couldn't buy that in the shops!

Personalisation.
Anyone who's read my little space here in the blogosphere knows only too well that I love personalisation. Nothing says you care more than something specifically made for someone using your own thought and effort. The chocolate creation arrives in a the form of a box card where it's name is on the front cover, complete with a teasing preview of the bar. As you can see here I made the bar for myself  and named it "The Appreciation Bar"


Addressing it to myself aswell... "To Jo" (because, let's face it, this is MY choice of chocolate and it is far too good to share with anyone, right?) on the inside front cover, the card also lists exactly what the chocolate bar toppings are made up of.


Inside the card is the bar itself, protected in a clear plastic wrapping to save from any chips or damage in transit, and it seemed to have done the job. Here's the final product...


Summary.
It's a lovely twist on a card, and a lovely twist on the traditional box of chocolates too. The chocolate itself is quality - thick and creamy, with both the chilli and salted caramel piercing through perfectly. The product itself was £7.40 but p&p was £2.45 making my gift just under a tenner. I originally thought the p&p seemed expensive until it arrived, it really is a decent size (140g bar) and in, my opinion, a wonderfully cost effective choice for a personalised gift.

Run on over to Yucoco and design your own now... don't forget, Mother's Day is around the corner and I, for one, would be thrilled with something like this on my doorstep.

What would you want on yours?

  5. Wow, that's a pretty cool idea...plus, you know, chocolate is always good. It might be something I try out as a 'thank you' to my cat sitter.
