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!
With fall comes s’mores: graham crackers and toasted marshmallows and chocolate. Mmm. Brings back memories of childhood (well, maybe a few more recent memories as an adult, too).
We took our s’mores up a notch to make them a really special dessert experience. We replaced the generic, run-of-the-mill chocolate bars with truffle Cubze. We just sliced the individial Cubze in two and then sandwiched the pieces with the toasted marshmallow between the graham crackers. Quite excellent! To make the experience even better…our guests were able to enjoy the inspirational thoughts about happiness that were wrapped into each piece. Some guests even took their witty little happy thoughts home with them for future inspiration and as a memory of our fun time together.
We gave our guests a choice of dark chocolate: mint, orange, raspberry, sea salt or the original. For the milk chocolate lovers we offered: cappuccino, peanut butter and cookie. These were certainly delicious and memorable desserts. Give it a try!
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.
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!
“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.

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!
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.

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.
