Project Description

Angelica’s Chocolates was born out of an adventure to Europe for a family wedding in the summer of 2017.  Our plan while visiting Europe, was to find a product that would be new to the United States and different from what was available in the marketplace.  Angelica’s Chocolates found that item, it is Emoti Brand Chocolates from Belgium. They are GMO free, contain no high fructose corn syrup and all the ingredients come from organic origins.

We spent the remainder of 2017 communicating with the manufacturer of Emoti Brand as well as taking care of all the necessary steps to import a new food item into the United States. Angelica’s Chocolates received our first shipment of approximately a ton of chocolate in June 2018, hence our ecommerce site was born. This was a great accomplishment after a few setbacks.  With additional trips to Europe we acquired the distribution rights to North America. We are not only an ecommerce business, we are a wholesaler.  Our next step is to be able to talk with the major retail outlets to spread the word about this great product and get it placed in their stores.

To date, the capital needed to perform all tasks has come out of our pockets. In order to continue the marketing and sale of this wonderful product we will need an infusion of funding to be able to contact the various market representatives.  The expenditure anticipated to reach these representatives and establish our product in the marketplace is estimated at $50,0000-$75,000.

Angelica’s Chocolates is a proud sponsor of ThePeteFoundation.org, having donated twenty-five percent of our profits to The Pete Foundation in 2018.

The Project FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why chocolate?  I became a grandmother for the first time and wanted to find a chocolate treat I could enjoy with my granddaughter and others.  I was searching for a treat that was different from what is in the current marketplace, something that was healthier than the current treats offered.  

How did we find this brand?  We sampled several chocolates in Europe and compared the ingredients.  We narrowed our selection to a few companies.  We then searched the company's websites to find out which brands were not being sold in the United States, Emoti was only sold in Europe.

What makes this brand Emoti different?  Emoti is full of high quality ingredients.  It is made with some of the highest cocoa solids content found in Pralines and Truffles.  All the ingredients come from organic origins, and it is made with natural sugar.

Is Emoti chocolate expensive?  It is not expensive.  My goal was to offer a high quality product at an affordable price so people on all economic levels can enjoy an affordable treat that is not filled with preservatives, lower cocoa content and lessor quality ingredients.  The cost of our chocolates is less than most high end chocolates. 

Why should you donate to the business and help it grow?  Healthy chocolate is a way to share a treat with family and friends without worrying about the additives and artificial ingredients in the chocolates.  American’s are becoming more health conscientious and appreciate healthier foods.  By being a sponsor of The Pete Foundation we are supporting mental health awareness for people of all demographics and backgrounds.
