What is a Chess Pie?
The new website has been LIVE for a couple of days.
Some of you have been adding a few of the new goodies to your order. Like the best Chess Pie you will ever have ...melting in your mouth. It took months and months to get this one just right. Chess Pie has quite a following in the South. So, I had to get this one better than right!
Chess Pie is very unique with the addition of vinegar and cornmeal. I know, I know...that sounds odd to you Northerners. But the vinegar gives it a slight tang and the cornmeal gently floats to the top when it bakes, creating a slight buttery crunch. Combined with the vanilla, eggs, butter and sugar...well let me just say... it is a very dangerous pie.
I also developed a special baking technique that creates a crust that caramelizes in the butter. Do not even think about checking out the nutritional info on the box. In the pie's defense...a little goes a long way... so if a regular 10" pie serves 8...you could squeeze out 10-12 servings of this pie and everyone would be joyous. Fa la la la la!

It took some time... but we have finally created a whole new look for Colts Chocolates.
I remember my very first website. I only had a few chocolates and desserts back then for you to choose from. I would check the email everytime I heard a click (the sound of someone placing an order.) I would shout through the office..."Whoo hoo! Someone just ordered!" Again and again all day "Whoo hoo! Someone ordered again!"
I never, ever forget the fact that you have so many products to choose from through out the World Wide Web. It is truly amazing and quite humbling that in this great big world, you spend your hard earned money on my little chocolates. I take that very seriously and want you to always be satisfied. Sometimes I even go back to the packaging department and add extra touches to the ribbon or make a bow a little straighter.
After all these years, it continues to thrill me. I hope you like the new look and find it easy to navigate. I have created some new products I hope you will try.
I would love to hear from you. When you place an order... we will all hear the click and we will all be shouting "Whoo hoo! Another order! Thank you!"
