Specialty chocolatier, Images in Chocolate have released the first custom imprinted chocolate sanghoki chips.
Casinos, hotels, and Las Vegas trade show exhibitors among others, can increase their corporate brand awareness using these 1-1/2″ diameter, 100% Belgian chocolate promotional items.
“Until now, there have been generic chocolate casino chips in the market but never one that could be custom imprinted for promotional use,” said Tim Dugan, company CEO. “Not only can our new chocolate casino chips be custom branded, they are the first to use 100% Belgian chocolate and also feature a much more authentic casino chip design than available before.”
A popular method of customizing these chips is to use a corporate logo on one side and imprint a variety of dollar denomination on the second side, replicating an actual casino chip.
Im thinking a few of these for the regular home game could go down a treat! But then again I do have quite a sweet tooth.
