Chocomize uses premium Fair Trade Belgian chocolate and high-quality ingredients to bring to you the finest in gourmet chocolate and flavorful combinations.
About our Belgian Chocolate
We source our chocolate from one of the rare chocolate makers that still selects, roasts their cocoa inside the shell of the bean itself, and finely grinds its own cocoa beans, with a process that yields a more intense and richer cocoa flavor. The final recipe yields a fine Belgian chocolate that has been expertly crafted for the perfect texture, aroma, and taste.
About Fair Trade
Consumers that shop Fair Trade products can rest easy knowing that these products are sourced from farmers and workers that have been justly compensated for their work, enabling them to have the resources to properly care for their families and communities. The Fair Trade network supports 1.2 million farmers and their families in 70 countries. As a result of our involvement with this initiative, all of the premium Belgian chocolate used in the production of our Chocomize bars, truffles, hot chocolate on a sticks, and more, is proudly Fair Trade certified.

How Chocomize got started
Chocomize was founded in 2009 by three recent grads from Columbia University. The idea for custom chocolate bars began with a mistake involving some sweets and chocolate and a hot summer day, melting everything together to form the first Chocomize bar.
Realizing they had an opportunity on their hands, Fabian Kaempfer, Eric Heinbockel, and Nick LaCava created Chocomize in hopes of capitalizing on the trend of mass customization and fulfilling the need for customized chocolate that was not being fulfilled in the United States. Chocomize became the first e-commerce in the United States to empower people to create their own chocolate bars with their favorite ingredients.
Chocomize now calls New York City home and has expanded to offer not only make your own chocolate bars in other shapes but other chocolate products like truffles, hot chocolate on a sticks, and seasonal favorites. Bulk orders are also available for chocolate corporate gifts like gourmet gift baskets and party favors for birthdays, weddings, and special events. Chocomize bars can now be found in various gift shops and stores around the country.
