Chocomize, a company based in Cherry Hill, N.J., is the latest in build-your-own tastyness. Chocomizing will let you choose your chocolate and up to 100 add-ins, and deliver it right to your door in just a few days. The chocolate from Chocomize can be ordered one-at-a-time or in bulk — however you prefer.

The appeal of Chocomize

Chocomize, a relatively young company, started up with a very basic concept. Three choices of chocolate and one hundred mix-in choices. Choose your chocolate, choose up to five mix-ins, and you’ve got custom chocolate. For instance, if you’ve always wanted to try a bacon and gummy bear chocolate bar, it’s yours. In short, Chocomize is appealing because you can customize whatever treat you want. There are bulk orders available too, so you can have a Chocomized treat for a big event. Chocomize also donates 1 percent of its proceeds to charitable organizations of the customers’ choice.

The Chocomize move

Chocomize is just the latest in customized food products. Companies that specialize in sodas, ice creams and multiple other foods have started customizing orders. Handmade and customized products are becoming more popular with the revival of arts-and-crafts style purchases. This growing “Makers Movement” is already worth more than $1 billion, with companies like Etsy providing online marketplaces. Chocomize offers one more customization choice, $4 at a time.

Chocomizing it yourself

The fancy boxes and professional printing can definitely make buying from Chocomize worth the money for some. However, if you just want to try out customized chocolate, you can do it much less expensively at home. Go to a candy-supply or restaurant supply store and pick up melting chocolate along with whatever mix-ins you want to try. Use a crockpot set on low or a double-boiler to melt the chocolate. Mix in whatever you would like with the melted chocolate, and pour it into a wax-paper lined pan. If you want to be fancy, you could even pick up candy molds at any restaurant supply store. For less than $1 per bar, you can have your own Chocomize experience.
