This Just In!

It's a C̶h̶r̶i̶s̶t̶m̶a̶s̶ New Year's Eve miracle! 😅 Look what just rocked up, one hour before the warehouse shut down for the end of the year. Container unload went smoothly, inventory count correct and everything is palletized and now into temp-controlled storage. And most important, the taste test check was a success 😋 Fitting way to end a action-packed debut year! See you on the other side... 💚 #newyearnewflavour

Salted Caramel Samples Have Landed!

Well, a carton of pre-production samples just rocked up! Pretty stoked at how the new flavor turned out.(salted caramel infused choc coating, around a crispy rice core)It beat out peanut butter and strawberry in taste tests (and our original flavor as well)This preproduction sample seems to have more flavor than the prior prototype, which was fairly subtle.  So, an improvement that hopefully is the same in production final product.If the production run goes smooth it should be complete by the 27th and arriving into the warehouse in the second week of December, in time for the holiday season!#getready

Flavor Test Results Are In !

Results are in.... aaaand we have a winner! To recap, we compared 3 new flavors (strawberry, peanut butter and salted caramel) vs the original, in anonymous "self serve" written poll. Not exactly a fair test as the original is production quality (better finish and texture) vs much rougher prototypes, but still accurate way to compare the 3 flavors. Anyway enough small talk... ....the winner is... SALTED CARAMEL ! 😍 Even being a prototype it slightly beat out the production original, with strawberry coming in next then peanut butter. Have to admit it was a huge relief, had been worried that we...

First order and first batch!

First order and first batch!

What a surreal few days!On Monday we got an email for our very first order...And 2 days later, today the first batch arrived into Hong Kong! Joyce opened up a carton and checked the chocolate, and it tasted and looked oh so fine!  (big relief - no melting or weirdness happening) It was a team effort to get things together, couldn't have done it without the plant-powered muscle movers... thanks guys! Kinda crazy to think this was just an idea a short number of months ago, now it's oh so real...#OneStepCloser #BiteForWhatsRight!
