Quick Patric Chocolate Update

Hi all,

I have ceased to blog due to lack of time.  So, if this blog is the only way that you keep up with Patric Chocolate, then you may have missed out on a few things over the last three years.  I have several recommendations:

Take a look at our “about” page and “press & video” page.  You’ll see how we’ve won 15 Good Food Awards as of 2016, more than any other food producer, and how Pete Wells of the New York Times really loves our chocolate.  Also, and perhaps most importantly, swing on over to the “shop” page and sign yourself up for the monthly bar-release newsletter.  This is where all bar-release information is announced, and how you can find out when the online store will be open for business each month.

Keep it chocolaty,

Alan

Patric Chocolate Takes on the New Web

When Patric Chocolate first started we had a website, and shortly thereafter a blog. At the time, it felt like I was “hip” and “with it,” but times soon changed.

Now Facebook, Twitter, and sites such as Flickr allow companies a way to tell their stories with passion and to build a connected community and fan-base. So, with the excellent advice of a couple of good friends, Patric Chocolate has taken the leap into the New Web:

The Patric Chocolate Facebook Page
— If you are on Facebook, please spread the word and become a fan. We have a review system as well so that you can tell everyone what you think about our chocolate and other fine chocolate products. I’ll be posting new chocolate-related videos and photo albums from cacao sourcing trips, and giveways will be available for Fans.

The Patric Chocolate Twitter feed
— Follow my daily chocolate-making process, learn about special events, and interact!

Thank you for your support; during these tough economic times, it really does mean a lot!

Very best,

Alan

P.S. Don’t forget to sign up on our mailing list on the top-right of the page. I send out a monthly newsletter with product specials, new products, events, and educational chocolate information. If you change your mind later, it is easy to unsubscribe with one click. No worries

P.P.S. By the way, if you’ve never seen what your mild-mannered chocolate maker looks like, there is a story in the Kansas City Star, just out today, that has quite a few good photos.

George Washington “Patric Chocolate” Cherry Pie

Renowned Kansas City chef Jasper Mirabile of Jasper’s was on KC Fox 4 today to demonstrate his recipe for George Washington “Patric Chocolate” Cherry Pie with Amaretto. Click below and then hit play to watch his demonstration and hear his description of Patric Chocolate. He says: “This is micro-chocolate, this is unbelievable, it’s like buying a bottle of wine, you’ll taste the cherries, you’ll taste the berries, you’ll taste everything in there…”

We send Chef Mirabile our gratitude for continuing to help spread the word about Patric Chocolate!
