This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

We are Open Book Chocolates. We’re a small, Maryland-based, woman-owned business that makes handmade, bean-to-bar, fair trade, literary-themed chocolate bars. Be the first to get your hands on our newest flavor, The Call of Cthulhu: Nori Seaweed, Ginger Spice, and Candied Ginger in Dark Chocolate. Supporting this Kickstarter will help us create this new chocolate bar AND upgrade our packaging!
Open Book Chocolates is a marriage between two passions: literature and chocolate. Food can be a powerful instrument in storytelling, from the bilberries Jane Eyre gathers on the heath to the ever-present tea shared by Holmes and Watson. Our signature flavors embody the stories, characters, and themes of our favorite classics.
Open Book Chocolates is a collaboration with River-Sea Chocolates (Chantilly, Virginia). They are a bean-to-bar chocolate maker who uses organic and ethically sourced ingredients.
Our newest flavor, The Call of Cthulhu, is inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s 1926 short story about narrator Francis Wayland Thurston’s search for the truth behind his recently deceased great uncle’s papers. Cthulhu is an ominous, nightmarish, octopus-like creature that hibernates underwater until the time is right for him to emerge and cause havoc. Nori seaweed represents Cthulhu’s aquatic origins, while the spicy kick of ginger expresses the discombobulation he bestows on man.
We are running this Kickstarter to help us upgrade our packaging for all 12 of our flavors (including The Call of Cthulhu) from a more traditional chocolate bar wrapping to an eco-friendly variety.
As of October 7th, this project has raised $12,800 of their $1,000 goal. This project has 5 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get one chocolate bar.
