Chocolopolis Newsletter

The Chocolopolis newsletter usually comes out 1-2 times per week and is filled with information about fine chocolate. We have an educational article about cacao and/or a feature on a chocolate maker. We also provide the latest calendar of events. If you're interested in getting more frequent information about scheduled events, make sure to also sign up for our Events mailing list. You can sign up for both mailing lists here.

Archived newsletters are available here.
