Happy National Milk Chocolate Day, everyone! Before you get off to celebrating properly by forcing ten bars of (let’s face it, probably Hershey’s) the tasty treat into your mouth, take a look at some of the most beautiful chocolate packaging designs from the non-Hershey companies whipping up deliciousness and decadence all over the world. Maybe we can convince you to trade in the standard old brown and silver staple for a carefully crafted assortment of goodies. So, feast your eyes on these wondrous beauties – that being said, you may not even want to unwrap them!
The uniqueness of the offbeat gift shop, Unelefante, is in a class all its own when it comes to products, and while their chocolate may only be fit for a Donald Trump type (a pack of three bars of their Jackson Pollock inspired chocolate goes for a mere $420), we can certainly appreciate the artistry in them from afar.
See and taste the southern charm in the stone-ground chocolate of Olive & Sinclair made in Nashville using pure brown sugar.
Theo is an organic, fair-trade chocolate company that has been around for almost ten years. We are in love with its clever logo and natural imagery – making us feel as if we are biting into nature’s greatest gift and not a factory’s!
Marou Chocolate has some of the best designs in sophisticated packaging out there. We cannot get enough of this antique map-inspired getup for their limited edition Treasure Island bar, which is a bit more laid back and intimate than their original line of bars.
How cool are these designs for Wellington Chocolate Company in New Zealand? Colorful, vibrant, and covered in unique illustrations, these chocolates would be impossible to miss!
True to the style of Portland, Woodlblock Chocolate’s design is simple, organic, and uniquely handcrafted.
Despite what these chocolates from The Tea Room look like at first glance, don’t go steeping them in hot water, they will melt and you will be licking your watery chocolate from a spoon. Well, maybe that doesn’t sound so bad.
How can we discuss chocolate packaging without mentioning the Brooklyn based Mast Brothers? Yes, technically they specialize in dark rather than milk, but we still love beyond love these impressive designs.
Beta 5’s name is derived from the “form-5 beta crystal structure” – the most stable form for the crystallization of cocoa butter. Therefore, it is only fitting that their bars are wrapped in paper with a geometric crystal-like print.
We love the nostalgic artisan feel from these “chocolate postcards” by Lapp & Fao. It almost makes us feel like we have gone back in time!
