Project Description

Looking to expand their specialty offerings, I worked with Lambertville Trading Company to create a new product that incorporated two varieties of their delicious coffee with chocolate from Bucks County, Pennsylvania's Naked Chocolate. Influenced by the historical use of LTC's location as a pharmacy/soda fountain in the late 1800s, my goal was to make these chocolates feel special, considered, and unique, and in keeping, each bar is made by hand in small batches and individually wrapped. 

The chocolate is available in two styles, a 38% milk with a light roasted coffee and a 72% dark with a dark roasted coffee, each lending their unique flavor characteristics to the bars.

Production Lesson(s)

The first production run for this project was printed on Domtar's 80# Cougar Natural. The prints came out great and the paper felt wonderful, but when those who were actually wrapping each bar individually got to work it became clear that the complex folds required were too difficult and tiring with such a heavy stock. For the second production a lighter weight version of the same paper was used which made folding faster and easier while maintaining a consistent look and feel.”
