packaging advice

My husband I are trying to get a business off the ground and are in search of a company for packaging.  We are primarily selling small batch hand rolled truffles and would like to have boxes that will show off our work and not break the bank.  Any suggestions?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Chocolate Relief Efforts for Hurricane Sandy

I was thinking this morning about the ways in which the ChocolateLife community might be able to aid in Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. And not just aid ChocolateLife members who make their livings making chocolate, but also people whose lives have been been tossed upside down and inside out who are in need of assistance.

After all, I know that there are ChocolateLife members up and down the East Coast that were within the path of the storm…

Chocolate Unwrapped, London, October 13th-14th 2012

Three weeks ago I was in London to be at Chocolate Unwrapped for the second year. This year a new location ‘Covent Garden’; more stands, talks, demonstrations and visitors! A few years ago this event was set up to promote fine flavour chocolate, artisan chocolatiers and chocolate companies who work in direct partnership with the cocoa farmers. And I must say: they succeeded!

I arrived Friday before the event. Because I was not be able to go to Paris this year I went straight to La…
