Cooking up quite an online stir in the last few weeks is Philadelphia’s Cocoagraph, makers of artisanal chocolates topped with vintage-filtered Instagram and Polaroid shots. The small start-up allows customers to pick and choose any photograph they may have floating around and turn it into a unique and edible keepsake with just one scan. Founder Rae Vittorelli made us a special batch—featuring our very own CH mascots Otis and Logan—so we could get a closer look at, and taste, the graphic treats.
While the image is what creates the buzz, the artisanal chocolate is equally important, and equally satisfying. Sourced from a small-batch, organic chocolatier in Santa Barbara, CA, each bar is available in two sizes in white, milk, dark and dark organic, with the addition of a subtle mint leaf flavored dark organic coming soon. Of the group, we preferred the dark organic for its crisp snap and slightly bitter but full flavor.
The new brand has a selection of chocolates available to purchase on their website, and are able to fulfill custom personal orders for weddings, personal and corporate events.
