Happy new year everyone.
Isn’t it amazing how things don’t quite go as planned? Way back at the end of 2017, as we closed up shop for a much needed break I announced that we were approaching 20,000 retail orders. To the lucky person who made retail order 20,000 I was giving it away free as a sign of gratitude of the support all these years.
As luck would have it, it turned out to be a recurring subscription order where the person who got it didn’t even really place the order. And whereas the free order could have been up to $1000 this one was 2 lbs of brewing cocoa, barely totally $20.
Anti-climactic to say the least.
I left a couple loopholes in the rules in case someone tried to take advantage of the offer, but also for just this case.
And so I am changing the rules of the giveaway. Instead of giving just order 20000 their order for free, I am instead giving out 11 $50 Give Certificates of appreciation for the people with orders 19995 – 20005.
In other news, we have introduced 3 new Chocolate making Kits (and retiring the Novice, Apprentice and Alchemist kits). You get to make some basic decisions about Dark, semi-sweet or milk and we deliver to you a plug and play kit all ready to go into your melanger.
Nutrichef Oil presses are back in stock if you want to press your own cocoa butter.
