A rich and creamy confection that is a cross between truffle and fudge in interesting flavors covered with smooth milk or dark chocolate, is how Paul McMahon described his concept to his wife, Michelle. A new twist on a traditional favorite that people can bite into and savor. Paul knows from experience that chocolate makes people happy. And as he developed the plan for his confections, he wrapped up the chocolate in happiness – literally.
The Happy Chocolatier™ LLC and his Cubze™ concept were born from a love of chocolate. Paul McMahon is known to family and friends as “the candy man,” which began with his six-year stint at a local retailer/manufacturer of traditional American chocolates. Even after making a move to the security industry for the next fourteen years, he kept a briefcase tucked away with a growing assortment of notes and ideas for a chocolate business. He arrives for any visit, birthday or holiday with chocolates in hand, making people smile with delight. As a food TV addict, Paul is inspired watching programs such as Unwrapped and Kid in a Candy Store, as well as Ina Garten’s The Barefoot Contessa and Emeril Lagasse’s shows. While vacationing around the U.S., Canada and Europe with his wife and two boys, he requires visits to all the local candy and fudge shops – and from all those visits he gathered more inspiration for the future.
The future became the present when he left his long-time job at the start of 2011 and decided to make a go of a career in the chocolate business. An entrepreneur at heart, Paul dusted off the briefcase full of ideas and created a business, The Happy Chocolatier, and his signature confections line, Cubze.
Cubze, perfect individual servings of fudge-truffle coated in chocolate, are each hand wrapped and include an inspirational message about happiness. They are handmade with high-quality ingredients. Cubze are available in a delicious variety of flavors such as cappuccino, chocolate, chocolate mint, chocolate walnut, cookies & cream, cranberry walnut, maple and peanut butter, coated in either milk or dark chocolate. Paul’s idea is that people can enjoy a single piece or share the happiness by giving the chocolate as a gift.
His signature line, Cubze, and many other delectable chocolates can be found at The Happy Chocolatier’s flagship store in Acton, MA or online at www.thehappychocolatier.com. The Cubze and other fine chocolates are available in single-serving sizes or in attractive, eye-catching boxes for gift giving, along with seasonal chocolates for the happy kid in all of us.
The Acton store also offers a selection of ice cream flavors that are complementary to chocolate, topping each cone or cup with a piece of rich milk chocolate. For those looking for something extraordinary, The Happy Chocolatier serves Cubze Parfaits – your choice of ice cream layered with your favorite Cubze flavor and garnished with whipped cream and a chocolate drop.
