This week Bob and Pat talk with Carmen Magar of Chocri about their startup that offers customizable chocolate bars at But there’s more to this story than good chocolate: Carmen explains how Chocri – based in Germany – is opening up the U.S. Market, how this startup taps social media, the complications of delivering a food as a product and why Chocri has donated over $42,000 to an Ivory Coast charity.

And listeners, if you’d like to make your own perfect chocolate bar, Carmen has set up a coupon code for you: Just enter ‘Bob’ and you’ll save 10%.
