Chocolate Circle

Chocolate Circle

11/3/10

I actually saw the review of another user here on the front page of sitejabber and was attracted to their thumbnail. I clicked to check them out and found that they carry a selection of very cute products- every single item they carry either has a food theme or is in the shape of some kind of food (mostly chocolate)! And since they offer free shipping and the prices of their items are priced at an affordable range of $3-$15, I decided to give it a try and purchased a handful of gifts for my family.

I got some snack and fast food themed pencils, some ice cream pens, some chocolate memo pads, biscuit calculators, an ice cream bedside lamp, chocolate pencil boxes and some other stuff for my nephews and nieces. They all arrived correctly and safely. I was very impressed when I opened the package- the items were in better quality that I expected of the price and they were beautifully packaged- all in all, excellent for such low price! Of course the children were even more excited when they received them. I believe that the theme played a big part. Like, it was how everything was about food that amazed them. Oh and how can I forget to mention the Hamburger Lunchbox- it literally comes in 3-layers for you to put different kinds of food in each layer for our children for their lunch! They love it the most out of everything and I heard that they were so proud when they could bring them to school to show their friends!

The good thing about this shop is that they also have something for women and men. I got my brother a hamburger lighter and a protection case for his iPhone 4 that is like a chocolate bar. He told me he has never seen it in any local gadget/accesssory shops and he was impressed. Then I got a chocolate bar compact mirror, a chocolate bar comb, a dessert-themed coaster set and a biscuit-shaped pouch for my wife. I was happy to see that she had the same grin as my nephews and nieces when she received the gifts!

This shop responded promptly to my order. They sent email to me a few times throughout the order to update me on the order status. They also seemed to ship promptly and the package arrived in an acceptable time frame (5 or 6 days). I am, overall, very happy about this shop. I will go back for gifts for my friends this Christmas and recommend this shop to people I know.

I have tried a few of the group buy deals gathered by this website- a lot of the restaurants are worse than they claim and the food and their presentation are MUCH WORSE than they describe and how it's shown in their photos. But we're not even at the worst part yet- if you have liked their Facebook page, they steal your account info and send invitations to all your friends writing personalized lines in the invitations on behalf of you without you knowing!! I will warn everyone to unlike their page and not to install any of their apps!

I love the mission of this small shop- trying to help artists make a living by helping them produce merchandise with their art. Merchandise comes in a wide variety- tees, stationery, accessories, wallets, etc. Honestly, I like a lot of their artists' works but some of them are not my cup of tea. But everytime I go back, I manage to find something I like. And of course it's also an excuse for me to support the many struggling artists out there. So, good job to the artists- and more so to poketo.com

Excellent quality for years. Neuhaus has always been my favorite brand of chocolate. They once had a store in my area but they closed down not long after. Since then, I have been a regular patronage of their online store. The selections that they ship to my area is limited, but enough to ease my craving for their unique taste. I can foresee myself continuing to buy from them for many years to come.

I am not an online shopping addict but couldn't resist their cute tshirts. Purchased an L size but they sent an M. Emailed multiple times with no response. No refund or any kind of follow ups. Very disappointed. Gave me a very negative online shopping experience.
