Wrapping Happiness into Every Truffle Cubze

The inside story: we literally wrap happy thoughts into every single one of our chocolate truffle Cubze. And, we do it one at a time by hand. WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE THE PROCESS IN ACTION.

Each Cubze is wrapped in a colorful foil like a miniature gift. As you open each Cubze you’ll find an extra-large chocolate truffle and an inspirational thought about happiness. While savoring the chocolate you can enjoy the happy thought you found inside. You might even save the tiny thought and tape it to your mobile phone for inspiration. Chocolate and happiness all in one!

This Is Why We Created Truffle Cubze

We received this note from a truffle Cubze fan: “My dearest friend came for coffee Thursday and she was very down. I gave her a Cubze and when she read the message her eyes filled up. Her husband has been very ill with Lyme disease, and has thankfully turned the corner. She posted the message on her fridge to fortify her soul. I laughed at first because it is so tiny, but the irony is this message wasn’t. You never know who will be touched by a positive message. Very Cool. What a joy to share something positive!”

Notes like this just make our day…people spreading chocolate happiness with truffle Cubze. If you have a story to share about how our truffle Cubze brought you happiness, or how your shared them with another to spread chocolate happiness, please send it to us.

Mother’s Day is May 8th


As we approach Mother’s Day, two happiness statements from our truffle Cubze sum up what moms do: “The most worthwhile thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others,” and “Let no one come to you without leaving better and happier.”

Sometimes, it’s during major life events:

  • First day of a new school
  • High school or college graduation
  • Religious milestones
  • A new job
  • Wedding
  • The birth of grandchildren

Other times it’s the little, everyday moments:

  • Kisses and bedtime stories
  • TLC and Band-Aids for banged up knee
  • Homemade cookies on a rainy day
  • Encouragement after a “tough” game
  • Limitless patience

Moms make us happy because of their boundless, never-ending love. So, we think they deserve at least a box of chocolate truffle Cubze for Mother’s Day on May 8th! Hopefully, this Mother’s Day your mom will enjoy one of our truffle Cubze and smile at the witty happiness thoughts wrapped inside. She may even smile at another of our happiness statements from the truffle Cubze: “Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.”

Chocolate truffle Cubze – the perfect gift for mom: fine chocolate truffles wrapped with inspirational thoughts about happiness!

Gifts within Gifts!

Customers and retail partners have told us that each of our truffle Cubze is like a “gift within a gift…” because of the little witty thoughts about happiness wrapped into each piece. After hearing these thoughts (time and again), we were inspired to create our holiday gift collection this year. The windowed chocolate gift collections highlight the shimmering foiled truffle Cubze inside each gold box and come with festive seasonal bows. To be accurate, should we refer to the holiday boxed collection as “gifts within gifts within gifts?”

We think the elegant presentation + fine chocolate truffles + inspirational happiness sentiments will make for truly unique and memorable gifts for friends, family and business associates this holiday season.

Behind the Scenes Look: New Packaging

A behind the scenes photo of our photo session! We’ve been working on some new packaging for our gift collections. Based on customer comments, we’re introducing some new gift boxes that really showcase the colorfully foiled chocolate truffle Cubze inside. As one person put it, “you’re showing off all the little gift packages inside the gift box. What’s better than that!”

Keep an eye out for the new packaging “debut” on our online store this fall and in a retailer near you. If you want to see our truffle Cubze at a retailer local to you, email us or tell the retailer to contact us. We really do want to spread chocolate happiness with our happiness filled truffle Cubze!

June Is National Candy Month: “Share Some Chocolate Happiness!”

“For the month of June, join the National Confectioners Association in enjoying the authentic, fun treats that chocolate and candy companies have been producing for more than 100 years. National Candy Month is a moment to focus on the companies and individuals who make the treats many Americans enjoy throughout the year,” said John Downs, president and CEO of the National Confectioners Association.

Celebrate National Candy Month with something unique like our chocolate truffle Cubze wrapped with happiness wisdom inside. One treat for the palate and one for the soul!

Changing Our Business Model to Expand Wholesale Distribution of Truffle Cubze

We are excited to announce that we are going to focus on increasing the number of retail outlets that sell our unique chocolate truffle Cubze. In the coming months, we plan to put our resources into increasing awareness of the Cubze (with the inspirational happiness sentiments) and expanding distribution to shops throughout New England through our wholesale program.  

At the same time, we are a little melancholy as we will be closing our Acton retail shop. We are very thankful for the community support and many kind words over the last six years. It was a wonderful experience to be part of the Acton community.

Not to worry, you can still get our truffle Cubze by visiting one of the retailers listed on our “Where to Find Us” page:  www.thehappychocolatier.com/where-to-find-us/, or you may order direct from us through www.thehappychocolatier.com and by calling (978) 429-8485. In Acton, there are several retailers who are selling the Cubze – both individually and in gift collections.

For business gift programs and special events like weddings, showers, birthdays, etc. please email us at info@thehappychocolatier.com to discuss your needs.

A Day of Merriment to Support Beacon Santa

As we do for many of The Happy Chocolatier major holidays, we support a local charity. Again this year we will be donating a portion of sales from Saturday December 9, to Beacon Santa. This is our 6th year of supporting the work of Beacon Santa. It is another way for The Happy Chocolatier to spread some happiness.

Come in to make your purchases for Christmas on December 9, and help us help those less fortunate this holiday season.

The Acton Boxborough High School Madrigal Singers and Santa will be at the plaza from 11:00 to 12:00 to add to the fun!

The Beacon Santa Fund is a nonprofit organization administered through GateHouse Media New England, the Beacon’s parent company. Since 1965, Beacon Santa has helped families having trouble making ends meet provide holiday gifts for their children. Originally started through The Beacon, the fund now helps families in Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Billerica, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Stow, Tewksbury, Westford and Wilmington.
