I hope your summers were satisfying and now you're settling in to the beauty of fall. I wanted to touch base and let you all know how grateful I am for your support and enthusiasm as this project takes 5x longer than I anticipated.
Luckily, for all of you that donated $35 - you have already enjoyed your chocolate! I am getting great feedback for the Herbal Mint and Goji Superfruit flavors now that they are on the market and it was my pleasure to deliver them to you as an exciting new product!
For the rest of you waiting for rewards that contain the ProCRUNCH bar.... All in the name of quality, the custom-shaped wrappers are taking a bit of time as cost is a big concern. I decided to work with a much smaller company and save about 50% of costs rather than work with a big label manufacture and pay double. I'm paying in time a little bit, but they assure me the wrappers will be ready this month. This will be better anyways... shipping will be cheaper and there will be no chance of melting!
I also wanted to share some updates with the company. I'm currently in discussions with 2 stores in CT and NJ about carrying Chocholistic and am working with two websites, VeganCuts.com and EarthTurns.com who are both enthusiastic about selling Chocholistic on their sites. The Greenwich CT Audobon is also carrying Chocholistic in their gift shop.
This fall, if you live in the NYC or Boston area, please come by our booth at the NewLifeExpo and Boston Vegetarian Food Festival respectively. We will have wonderful samples there and would love to meet you in person!
Moving forward, I am continuing to expand the line with more flavors, bars, and superfoods. While digging deep I realized that if Chocholistic is going to be as powerful a product as I want it to be, I have to be on the cutting edge of chocolate creativity and make unique and satisfying varieties the main focus. PLEASE TAKE THIS POLL AND LET ME KNOW WHAT FLAVOR YOU WANT TO SEE NEXT.
Thank you again. Being a young, female entrepreneur is challenging. Rewarding. Exciting. Exhausting. And invigorating. I will never look back now, and I have YOU to thank for that.
Kenzie Harrick, CHHC
