EVENT: Astor Chocolates – Moodibars, Chocolate Emoticons
I love being invited to events because of our membership in the Atlanta Food Bloggers Society and this time was very special. Astor Chocolate is a leading supplier of premium Belgian chocolates offered in elegant custom packaging with branded chocolates for corporate gifts and promotional items. Widely recognized throughout the hospitality industry, their products include handmade truffles in customized boxes, chocolate with custom molds, chocolate candy bars with custom printed wrappers, table favor items and a variety of gourmet snacks. If you’ve ever stayed at a hotel with turndown service and a chocolate was placed on your pillow, chances are pretty good that it was from Astor Chocolate.
Rich Ezra, Chief Disruption Officer with Creative Chemistry, and Jackie Robertori, Marketing Manager with Astor Chocolate, provided a tasting on wine and chocolate that was enjoyed by all. The broad product line is an achievement in itself, but this was an opportunity to present that to food bloggers around the country, and tonight was ATL’s turn to represent with an invitation only event in a suite at Philips Arena for an Atlanta Hawks game.

One of the coolest thing I saw throughout the evening was Moodibars. These chocolates, with an emoticon label (happy, blah, grumpy, tired) capture the impact that emoticons have on our culture. Seen in everything from tweets, Facebook status updates, texts, and even emails; emoticons are now an integrated part of our mainstream culture and now you can eat them! Rich, smooth, and creamy – these chocolates are divine.
Many thanks to Astor Chocolates for their very kind hospitality and it was wonderful seeing our fellow members of the Atlanta Food Bloggers Society at this event. Guten appetit!
