When was the chocolate box invented?

The original chocolate box was invented by Richard Cadbury (from the famous Cadbury chocolate business) in 1861. Richard Cadbury devised the idea to sell their ‘fancy chocolates,’ which today we call assortments, in decorative little boxes. Every box of chocolates had a small picture on the front, made so children could cut them out and keep them.

The chocolate boxes were works of art, and highly appreciated by the people in Victorian times. Not only were the boxes suitable for chocolates, but they could also be used to store small items, such as buttons and needle and thread once the chocolates were gone.

What can a promotional chocolate box do for your business?

A promotional chocolate box with your business branding printed onto the box can increase the awareness of your company. Having these as gifts given out to potential customers can help people to remember you. A bespoke and well decorated chocolate box is a unique item to receive spontaneously so it should make people remember you,  they might even look up your business online and learn more about what you do and your products or services.
