"We call it the unique chocolate taste experience for two people," VP Marketing and Sales Rik Bijl of TWOlycious says. "You can both enjoy it at the same time and therefore it brings people together."

Although it didn't win the annual innovations election during the ISM fair in January, TWOlycious was voted one of the most innovative products of 2014. Bijl: "Everybody who came to visit us said: finally something unique, something fun."

Immediately after the fair the telephone started ringing. Japan wanted 15.000 TWOlycious, Italy also 15.000 and the US even 40.000. Also the company is negotiating with large distributors in various countries who want to bring the chocolate gift on the market.

Bijl and his business partner, VP R&D Wilco Peeters, got the idea for TWOlycious early 2013 and visited the ISM Fair, only to discover that there was no such thing on the global snacks & sweets market. This year they returned with their readyTWOsell invention. This year's Valentines Day comes too early, but in 2015 they want to make TWOlycious the most popular gift between lovers.

TWOlycious comes in four varieties: tempting white, passionate red, mystic milk and divine dark. The hearts are made with sustainable chocolate from Tanzania. The cocoa derives its unique aroma from an innovative and carefully executed fermentation process, which uncovers only the very best of the bean. This technique was developed by Barry Callebaut, a leading global supplier of cocoa and chocolate. The manufacturing of the chocolate takes place at Visser Chocolade in the Netherlands.

TWOlycious is also popular as a business present. "Not for advertising, but to connect people and businesses. It's a token of trust and relationship. The two hearts are a universal sign emphasizing that you like each other," Bijl says.
