Halloween chocolate candy is not boring anymore – not with the creative minds at Chocolate Pizza Company. It depends who you ask on which major holiday has the most chocolate sales but it is safe to say that Halloween chocolate candy comes roaring in at one of the top spots with its end of October surge. Increasingly though, Halloween candy is taking on a much more visible presence in the holiday landscape as adults join the younger crowd in celebrating all things spooky. Beyond Halloween chocolate candy that trick-or-treat kids will find in their plastic pumpkins on All Hallows Eve, families and businesses are finding Halloween a great time to exchange gifts that capture all the cool colors and themes of fall’s first celebration.
Chocolate Pizza Company is Central New York’s largest chocolate maker and they are front and center in this growing trend toward cool Halloween chocolate candy gifts. A hand-decorated “Happy Halloween” Chocolate Pizza makes a great gift for parties or family and friends. Chocolate Pizza blends gourmet chocolate with homemade English toffee and tops it with chocolate candies and sugar decorations for the season. Served in a custom pizza box it is a fun gift idea that shines at Halloween. They are available in a regular 16 oz size or a large 25 oz size.
But you don’t have to wait for Halloween to give a Chocolate Pizza. The October Avalanche Chocolate Pizza or the Spooky-licious Chocolate Pizza offer two gift ideas that feature toppings loaded with candy favorites in a color pallet perfect for the season. Better yet, customers can add Peanut Butter Wings to their order for the tastiest “pizza & wings” gift idea ever. These famous salty-sweet treats cover rippled potato chips in creamy peanut butter and drench them in rich milk or dark chocolate. Glitter magazine raves, “You have not lived until you’ve tried these.”
That same delicious Chocolate Pizza blend also comes in slices and Halloween brings out some creative choices. For example, the Mummy Slice is by far the most popular. Sugar eyes peer out from ribbons of white chocolate that wrap the slice like a hauntingly delicious mummy! Want something a little smaller? No problem, check out “The Eyes Have It” for a spooky treat. One bloodshot sugar eyeball sits atop a chocolate enrobed oversized peanut butter cup. Add Halloween colored sprinkles and this is a trick-or-treat treasure.
Chocolate Pizza Company owner, Ryan Novak, started with the company as a dishwasher when he was 15 years-old. The entrepreneurial teenager saw something special in what was then a small-town chocolate shop and told the founder that when she wanted to retire he wanted to own the business. In 2010, when he turned 21, she sold it to him. Since then, Ryan has taken the company on a wild ride from village chocolate shop to emerging national brand. He has been featured on Food Network, Hallmark Channel, CNBC, CMT and in Forbes, People and Entrepreneur magazines. In 2015, Chocolate Pizza Company built its own 10,000 square foot production facility in Marcellus, New York, just a few minutes from Syracuse.
