No Trick in this Treat

We all know that trick or treating is the best part of Halloween. Everyone here at OCHO remembers trick or treating fondly. And it always finishes with separating the stash into two piles: good candy and boring candy. But what if all the candy was good? That’s the ultimate dream….

OCHO Birthdays!

At OCHO, we started a tradition where we make a custom 1lb OCHO bar for our employees on their birthdays. Employees choose their favorite fillings and our crew takes care to satisfy their birthday wishes. Not that we need any excuse to eat more chocolate than we usually do (which is a lot), but our team really enjoys sampling these massive treats. This week, we were fortunate to celebrate two birthdays, Ryan, who runs the chocolate machine, and Tony, who oversees the filling of our delicious chocolate shells. We made each birthday boy their gigantic one pound bar in their favorite OCHO flavor (Peanut and Caramel for Ryan and Mocha for Tony).  The bars were wrapped, presented and sliced for all to share. Another tough day at the office. By the way, these 1lb OCHO bars will be available soon in limited runs for our fans to try.

How OCHO Sees Chocolate

After a long week at the OCHO Factory, I was looking forward to a relaxing, cultured night listening to the Oakland East Bay Symphony. Sitting in the theater, serenaded by music, I couldn't stop thinking about one little coconut mini I’d picked up just hours before, only one of the thousands I’d handled all week. This chocolate had a slight bump on the bottom – easily fixed with a couple swipes of the chocolate shaver. But before I could fix it, the little guy got swept away in the coconut mini tsunami. I twisted my program, obsessing about that mini, visualizing that quick swipe in my head over and over, so close to perfection. I’ve only worked a few weeks at the OCHO Factory, but already I’ve started to understand that we OCHO folk look at chocolate in a different way. We don't spend all day cupping our hands under the chocolate waterfall like Willy Wonka or swiping bites from the conveyor belt like Lucy. But we do obsess in our own ways – we inspect and compare and examine and taste and talk about candy all day. We go home to our partners every night with our bodies covered in chocolate without any romantic connotations, but we still get excited – by a shiny, finished batch of candy bars, the buttery smell of cooking caramel, and the potential for perfection.
