How to Throw Yourself a Singles Awareness Day Party

By • 5 months ago with 3 replies already

Whether you just got out of a relationship or were never in one, Valentine’s Day can be a real downer. The chocolate companies have simply devised a plan to sabotage our New Year’s resolutions! When you’re single, February 14th is just another day.

To be honest, I’m single by choice. I just haven’t met anyone who can handle all of my awesomeness. But if you were disheartened by the The Day Which Shall Remain Unnamed, rejoice because today is Singles Awareness Day, a time to celebrate love for yourself and all of the amazingness that is you!

In order to take advantage of today here are some tips for throwing yourself an awesome “Singles Awareness Day” party.

1. Invite all your single friends over to celebrate. If you have single friends left, that is. If not, skip this step and move directly to step 2.

2. Get a mug. Fill it up with your weapon of choice. Mine is hot chocolate, but feel free to go for something a little stronger.

3. Get some food. Pizza and chocolate are a surprisingly awesome combination. Might I also suggest these awesome cake pops:

4. If you’re into bacon, you can always get this shirt.

I know the shirt is for sale, but how much for the model?

5. Going out is over rated. Netflix isn’t going to marathon itself. Here’s a blanket so you have something to cuddle with.

And remember…February 14th is be just another day, but Singles Awareness Day is just for you. CELEBRATE!

Chocomize your Valentine’s Day

By • 6 months ago with no replies yet

If you are anything like me, you have Valentine’s Day on cruise control. You’ve already booked reservations at their favorite restaurant, you have a spectacular gift ready to give them during dessert, and you’ve already picked your outfit and properly accessorized for the evenings’ festivities. Every so often, though, it’s good to inject a little something extra, something that breaks up the monotony of the same yearly celebration. This year you should Chocomize your Valentine’s Day!

What is Chocomize?

Chocomize is the perfect combination of sweet-tooth satisfaction and creative outlet. You can design a tasty chocolate bar for any occasion, including Valentine’s Day. The company was founded in 2009 by Fabian Kaempfer, Eric Heinbockel, and Nick LaCava, three Columbia University graduates. Like many great inventions, the idea for Chocomize came from a happy accident “involving some sweets and chocolate and a hot summer day, melting everything together to form the first Chocomize bar” according to their website. Thanks to this serendipitous moment the company launched as the “first e-commerce in the United States to empower people to create their own chocolate bars with their favorite ingredients.”

How do I create a Chocomize bar?

First, get ready to fire up your imagination and forget everything you think you know about chocolate bars! Second, choose from three different chocolate bases:

  • Milk Chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate
  • White Chocolate

Now it gets even more fun. You can add up to 5 toppings to your Chocomize bar from 69 different options, including:

  • Hazelnuts
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Pecan halves
  • Whole almonds
  • Dried cranberries
  • Dried raspberries
  • Banana chips
  • Diced ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Toffee
  • Mini marshmallows
  • And more!
