A New Approach to Wholesale Chocolates
Develop a brand new approach to chocolate by including photos and messages (anything you want to say) with products from Chocolate Impressions. Select a high-quality chocolate gift from their wide range of Chocolography products, then customize with your uploaded image, clip art, frames, backgrounds and greetings. Offer this to your customers for custom orders, or choose your own personalized messages that customers will love. Their Chocolate Heart Box (great for enclosing an engagement ring or other jewelry), Heart Lollipop, Portrait with Truffles or Personalized Chocolates will draw customers in for that one-of-a-kind Valentine gift.
While Chocolate Impressions’ products are great for year-round sales, they can certainly boost your sales during the Valentine’s Day holiday. By adding their chocolates to your gift baskets, balloon bouquets and that showstopper – dozen red roses, you will offer your customers the ultimate Valentine gifts.

They specialize in custom-molded chocolates in four enticing flavors (milk, dark, dark mint and white vanilla) with over 3,000 shapes to choose from, including hearts, long stem roses and champagne bottles.
Some of their treats: include a large Chocolate Heart Box filled with Jelly Bellies; a Valentine Treat Bag filled with six Lindt truffles and six heart-shaped chocolates. They also have Cupid’s Arrows (red licorice sticks dipped in white chocolate) and for that quintessential cookie lover a Valentine Oreo Treat Bag filled with six dark chocolate mint dipped Oreo Cookies — who wouldn’t love that!
