Chocolate is delicious, but the candy bars you can buy at your grocery store hardly inspires creativity. CreateMyChocolate.com does. This brilliant viral marketing gimmick allows you to custom-create your own chocolate bar. Start by selecting the kind of chocolate you want to use,varying from milk chocolate to 64 percent cocoa, and then pick from an insane number of ingredients. Nuts, fruit, spices, confections and even grains are all well represented: there are over 10 billion potential combinations according to the site.
This could make a great gift, but won’t come cheap: my simple bar with fruit cost 9 dollars for 3.5 oz of candy. Still, if you’re getting a custom bar you have to expect to pay more than usual. It’s a great custom gift, so you should expect to pay more than you would for a Mars bar.
Even if you don’t intend to buy, however, it can be a great deal of fun to experiment with the site. You just might end up with a good idea for making your own chocolate at home, or at the vary least find some cool ingredients for baking that you hadn’t thought of before. Check it out for this reason alone.
