Final Stretch

Fulfillment Update

Fulfillment of kickstarter rewards should all be shipped by Monday and arrive on Wednesday (Thursday if the post office is slow about it).  If you are picking up your boxes from the shop, feel free to come by any time during normal working hours.

Here's what fulfillment looks like at the Intrigue Chocolate Co. shop:

Cocoas and Fortunato No. 4 beans being put into boxes.

Our office side of the shop. It's not a pretty sight. Between shipping materials, t-shirts, and new packaging boxes, we're full to the brim!  Fortunately there is some table space left for folding and piecing together the new boxes.  This is where I spend most of my time while Aaron is in the kitchen making truffles.

Only a small hangup on fulfillment that affect a few of you at the $50 tier.  I've reached out to you already.  If you have not connected with me yet and absolutely need the chocolate by Valentine's Day, then tomorrow (Saturday the 9th) is the last chance to let me know that I need to prioritize your order.  Otherwise it's likely we will still get your chocolate to you on time, but not guaranteed.  If you do not receive by Thursday, you will receive a box in the mail one week later.  Thanks again to those that offered to be patient just a little longer.

New Website

We've launched an updated website to better showcase the new band and packaging.  It's a little bare bones right now, and we are getting by with our amateur photos until later in the month, but take a look!  http://www.intriguechocolate.com

Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to reach out to me directly at karl@intriguechocolate.com.  Thank you!

      I received my package around the middle of last week. I was particularly impressed by the packaging steps to protect the chocolate, particularly the Mylar bubble wrap pouch, and cooler pack. The product packaging was also very nice, and I am glad I backed this project. The chocolate itself was well worth the wait, and compares favorably with the best premium chocolates I have tried.

      Among other items, I received a basil truffle bar. It occurred to me only after sampling out about two-thirds of it, that it might make an interesting sauce base for a pork tenderloin roast. Other than cooking, it might be a bit of an acquired taste.

      Perfect timing with Valentine's Day!

      Hi Hina,

      Sorry to hear about the trouble with the cocoa. We try to take every precaution by sealing each tin with a sticker and enclosing each one in a bubble wrap pouch. Unfortunately the post office can be rough with the boxes, and it sounds like they were especially rough on yours. Were you able to salvage the product, or would you like us to replace the cocoas (once we have inventory of cocoa again). If the latter, send me an email at: karl@intriguechocolate.com

      In the culinary world, there are 3 teaspoons to a tablespoon. An "eating teaspoon" is usually the smaller spoon you eat cereal with. We recommend 2 heaping "spoons" per cup of cocoa. Really its what tastes right for you. Aaron doesn't get as many servings from a can because he likes to make it really thick.

      I got mine, but all three hot chocolate tins were open and the mix was everywhere - how many teaspoons per 8-12 ozs? Thanks much!!
