A Little Bit About The Tipsy Truffle
These truffles are so fun! We love everything about them, from the unique flavor combinations to the beautiful packaging. Thank you for letting us feature you and your story. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business!
Hello! I’m Chris and I’m the founder of The Tipsy Truffle! I specialize in liqueur infused chocolate truffles. Being a chocolatier is fun and exciting, it brings out the inner child in me when it’s time to design the truffles, much like a work of art!
I’ve always had a passion for the culinary arts but what truly inspires me is the thought of others enjoying something that I created. There is no greater satisfaction than that of seeing another person indulge in a chocolate confection that you created. Besides, chocolate is pure bliss and is the answer to everything haha!
I agree. There are only a few things in life that I love more than chocolate. Do you have any favorite truffles that you’ve made or any that you’re working on that you can share with us?
I love all my creations! But right now, I’m currently focusing on Valentine’s Day and our Love Collection which consists of our Lover’s Box (Dulce De Leche, Amaretto Nutella Crunch, and Bourbon Hazelnut Praline) followed by our Pastelito Bar (Chocolate Bar filled with Guava and Cheese) and Love Bombs (Personalized heart shaped cocoa bombs).
The Tipsy Truffle & Paper Mart
As you know, we’re celebrating 100+ years as a family-owned business and we couldn’t have done it without your support throughout the years. What are your thoughts on the importance of shopping family owned and local?
I believe that when you’re supporting a small business, you’re supporting someone’s dreams! I always try to shop local and small, and in a way, you’re giving something back to the community. I’m a firm believer that we’re not all meant for the corporate industry, some of us are destined for bigger things, like creating chocolate confections haha!
How did you hear about Paper Mart, how long have you been a customer with us, and what keeps you coming back?
I first heard about Paper Mart about 3 years ago when I was browsing for my packaging needs. I gave it a shot and fell in love with your gold coated boxes! They’re pre-assembled and always arrive on time. Never have had a complaint but most importantly, Paper Mart is always consistent with their products!
What are your favorite Paper Mart products and why do you love them?
I gotta say that I’m in love with my gold coated boxes! They’re elegant and go hand in hand with my brand! The clear top adds visibility to the beautiful products I offer while the gold coating makes it pop and attracts attention!
