Chocology Meets Technology

Chocology has an exciting new development for all you chocolate enthusiasts out there. Through the combination of science and creativity, we have a new piece of technology that will change the chocolate game forever. No, it is not a chocolate powered hoverboard (though hopefully that will be invented soon). Even better, we have a 3D chocolate printer! It combines all of the best qualities of both chocolate and technology.

To understand how the 3D chocolate printer works, first we must understand how a regular 3D printer works. A design is created and given to a computer to construct. The computer then drives a mechanical arm to place plastic, layer be layer from the ground up to match the design exactly. Our new machine functions exactly like a typical 3D printer except the boring old plastic is replaced with delicious chocolate! This means there is practically no limit to the chocolate designs we can create.

One of the reasons this machine is so spectacular is the way that technology and chocolate have to work together. The chocolate used to make designs is the same Belgian chocolate that we use for our Fat Ass Fudge that you know and love. To keep our quality the same, the printer must keep the chocolate within a 1 degree range while it makes a design with extreme precision. This is no easy task, but the result is spectacular. We get a beautifully designed chocolate treat thats ready to eat right off the printer!

This technology has so many applications we are very excited about, including printing logos for companies or names for parties. More importantly, we are excited for the way we can engage the public, especially kids, in technology and science. Regular technology doesn’t interest everybody, but adding chocolate to the equation has the potential to change all of that. Now adults and children alike have the opportunity to explore new interests in science they never knew they had.

This chocolate printer is an amazing new addition to the Chocology team. Our products are no longer limited by technical ability. The limit of our chocolate is now bound by our creativity alone, and that is something we are very exciting to share.

Anaheim White House Restaurant

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 5.35.19 PMIt is with a heavy heart that we inform all of our Chocology readers about the fire at one of Chocology Gives Back Non-Profits. On Saturday, February 3 a fire broke out in the restaurant of Chef Bruno, one of Madeline’s CNN Heroes. Fortunately no one was hurt, however over 80% of the restaurant was destroyed. It will be between 8 and 10 months before they are able to be back up and running.

Chocology has not only donated to but worked closely with Caterina’s Club and the children from the Anaheim Boys and Girls Club. The Anaheim White House was home to these charitable organizations. We send our love and prayers for a speedy recovery and are hear to help in any way we can.

If you would like to help, a GoFund me account has been set up on behalf of the Anaheim White house here.

The work of Caterina’s Club will go on. To learn more about this wonderful organization headed up by Chef Bruno, or to contribute to their cause please visit here.

It is such an honor to work with this organization that helps so many families and children. We know that the spirit of this organization will survive this hardship and forge forward through this recovery period. To read more about Madeline’s involvement with Chef Bruno please visit this link

It seems fitting that National Chocolate Covered Anything Day falls on December 16, right in the middle of the holiday season! So while you work on getting all of those holiday treats ready for family and friends, why not dip them in a bit of chocolate to make them extra special?

We’ve experimented with chocolate dipping at Chocology more times than we can count. What doesn’t taste better covered in chocolate? Pretzels, nuts, marshmallows, strawberries. . .the list goes on. Some of our Facebook followers have suggested raspberries, pineapple rings and cashews – and lots of them! Or how about a slice of our Fat Ass Fudge washed down with your favorite glass of wine? Whatever it is, you can be sure that if it’s covered in chocolate, it’s going to be good! We’ve even experimented with chocolate added to chili! See the recipe here.

What’s more? How about dipping yourself into a bit of chocolate? Our chocolate milk bubble bath will refresh and renew your skin and spirit and is a perfect way to celebrate National Chocolate Covered Anything Day. The bubble bath is great for gift giving as well. Mix up a batch to share with your family and friends.

We absolutely love having you join us on our chocolate covered adventure. Thanks for being a part of the Chocology family!

World Kindness Day

 

world-kindness-logo

Chocology loves giving back in the world. Our Chocology Cares campaign speaks to that. That is why we are so excited about World Kindness Day, celebrated around the world next Sunday, November 13th.

Wikipedia says this about World Kindness Day:

World Kindness Day is an international observance on 13 November. It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement a coalition of nations kindness NGOs. It is observed in many countries, including Canada, Japan, Australia, Nigeria and United Arab Emirates.”

World Kindness Day is an international movement to spread kindness across our world. It has no political or religious connections. Chocology recognizes that kindness and giving back actually helps our communities to grow stronger and live better. We practice kindness in our everyday lives. We look for, notice, appreciate and try to emanate the good that we see. When we focus on the good, good things happen! Always!

At Chocology our bottom line is not always about profit. We embrace the people we come in contact with and try to make their lives happier as well. Our bottom line is only as good as the people we touch.

img_0649

This past weekend, Madeline chose to hold a marshmallow challenge at our Port Jefferson Farmers Market for the children (and their parents and grandparents!) who visit us there. In order to participate, each person had to share an act of kindness that had touched his or her lives.

img_0664

The responses were overwhelming. Kids remember the smallest of things. Here are just a few of the things our participants had to share:

“My teacher gave me an extra day to study for the test, since I had been sick and didn’t feel like studying.”

“My grandmother made my costume.”

“My mom was really nice when I broke her favorite bowl. She didn’t get mad at me like I thought she would.”

img_0676

It takes so little to be kind. What will you do in honor of World Kindness Day? We’d love to hear about it. Please share in the comments, on Facebook or Tweet us your act of kindness or a kindness that was extended to you. It inspires us to hear your stories.

Here’s to a world filled with kind people!  #ChocologyCares
