Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Lemon Log Contest

A lemon log

The making of the lemon log

These are a wonderful treat. They are not yet on the website because we have not figured out a good way to ship them. They are slightly bigger than our cups and we don't want them jouncing around.

So, Life By Chocolate is sponsoring a contest. If you can figure out how to ship these 2 inch logs of pure delight, we will send you a half pound of lemon logs.

They jounce around even in the display cabinet and that doesn't move around much.

Look for other log flavors. Orange, Pineapple and more.

Rules and Restrictions and more information.
(Thank you Shane for asking the right questions.)

Rules, well, there are none except I don't want to reform the lemon logs. I want them to ship as is without the problems of getting disrupted. If you give us a solution, we'll test ship to see if it works before awarding a prize.

Restrictions, we'll only ship the prize in the continental US. (Unless you have a really good solution. For example, if you live in Canada and you have the best solution, sure we'll ship the prize.) We also don't want to buy custom forms. This has to be a cheap and clever solution. First one that works, wins.

More information. We normally ship in two types of boxes. Free form boxes, that is, boxes without forms and we also have square forms that the lemon logs do not fit in.

The logs themselves are 1 7/8 inch by 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch tall.

The boxes are 5 1/2 X 2 3/4 X 1 3/4, 7 X 3 3/8 X 2, 3 3/4 X 3 3/4 X 3, 5 3/4 X 5 3/4 X 3 (all in inches.)

We have more sizes of boxes but these are the most popular for shipping. Your solution does not have to accommodate all boxes but the one that accommodates the most boxes and works will win.

I'll be interactive on this. See facebook or twitter if you have more questions. Thanks.
