Two Tone Chocolate Gift BarA great way to get a prospect’s attention? Custom chocolate gifts. Few gifts will deliver the impact of chocolate. It excites the senses like nothing else. You’ll be the talk of the office when you drop off these tasty treats. And there are so many options available that you can certainly create the perfect gift for your next promotion.

My favorite is the Two Pound Executive Gift Bar. It’s a lot of chocolate, and can be custom molded with your logo and promotional message. Available in milk chocolate, dark chocolate or as a two toned (milk and dark) chocolate bar.

Another one of my favorites are the premium truffles in a beautiful gift box. Or the chocolate covered cookies. Or the chocolate covered nuts. Or the chocolate bars with custom wrappers. Yum.

Do you know the history of the candy? This is from Wikipedia: Forrest Mars, Sr. founder of the Mars Company, got the idea for the confection in the 1930s during the Spanish Civil War  when he saw soldiers eating chocolate pellets with a hard shell of tempered chocolate surrounding the inside, preventing the candies from melting. Mars received a patent for his own process on March 3, 1941. Production began in 1941 in a factory located in New Jersey. One M was for Forrest E. Mars Sr., and one for William F. R. Murrie, President of Hershey’s Chocolate. Murrie had 20 percent interest in the product. The arrangement allowed the candies to be made with Hershey chocolate which had control of the rationed chocolate. When operations were started, the hard-coated chocolates were made in five colors: red, yellow, brown, green, and violet. They were served in a cardboard tube (similar to Smarties). The practicality of the candies during World War II caused an increase in production. During the War the candies were exclusively sold to the military. In 1948, the cardboard packaging was replaced by the black cellophane packaging. In the same year Mars bought out Murrie’s 20 percent stake. (Read more here.)
