Thank You.





When we set out to raise funds via Kickstarter, we weren’t sure what to expect. We knew it was going to be challenging and to say it was is an understatement. But as we relentlessly promoted the campaign, something interesting occurred: people started talking about us. Our Twitter followers have nearly doubled, bloggers and online publications have reached out to us, and our campaign was even featured on Yahoo Financial. We’ve continued to build on a solid reputation as Austin’s finest artisan chocolatier and that momentum has propelled us to a brighter-than-possible future.

And we couldn’t have done this without the support of our backers.

We can’t express our gratitude to you enough. Though we didn’t raise our fundraising goal, you still took a chance and believed in us.

Thank you.

Thank you to Lisa, Carla, Deborah M., Barry, Krissy, Michelle, Todd, Chrisie, Lee, Romi, Doreen, Jonathan, Mike R., Mike C., Shelle, Jo Dale, Kimberly, Cindy, James M., James K., Deborah P., Kay, Amy, Corrin, Brett, Helen, Katie, Eileen, Frazier, Stephanie, Loren, and Chad.

The fact that you would take the time and contribute makes us want to sing for joy.

Our goal wasn’t met, but we still encourage you to contribute your hard-earned dollars to a worthy cause. Between Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the recent tornadoes in the midwest, and the Halloween flood right here in Austin, there are people out there who desperately need help. We are asking you to continue your giving spirit and support those in need.

Please consider donating what you would have contributed to Delysia to the Red Cross. It’s just three easy steps to make a donation.

We still have lots of exciting things on the horizon for Delysia Chocolatier. Please make sure you stay in touch either via our website or social media channels so you don’t miss out.

Again, we are eternally grateful for all of your support during our Kickstarter campaign. We hope you enjoy the start of a joyous holiday season.

Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
