Chocolate Wrap Blog

Come see it made! It’s Scrumdidilyumptious!

I’ll admit our chocolate factory does not make giant edible mushrooms, lick-able wallpaper or an ever-lasting gobstopper.  We have no chocolate lake, nor do we have a Wonkavision that transports chocolate straight into […]

That’s right folks; you can now ship […]
