How Geometry and Chocolate Became a Great Couple

Archimedes Chocolates is an artistic endeavor involving as much organic dark chocolate as it does geometry.

In need of a healthy distraction following a major life event, the founder’s appreciation for the beauty and wisdom of nature led him to study the mathematical principles that serve as the basis of all physical forms in nature. “Pi and square roots. The golden ratio. Irrational numbers and repeating fractals. These all formed the basis of my chocolate brand,” said Jeff Beaudoin, owner of Archimedes Chocolates. “Here at Archimedes Chocolates, we’re literally blending organic dark chocolate with art and science.”

The Geometry Behind the Chocolate

Beaudoin began by learning how to work with a compass. “Basic stuff: circles and squares and triangles and polygons. Then the flower of life and Metatron’s cube,” Beaudoin said. “Eventually, I graduated to drawing three-dimensional Archimedean solids like octahedrons and dodecahedrons. Soon I was able to recreate any polyhedron from memory on a computer. Regular and isogonal, noble and uniform, dual and stellated. I then invented a mathematical method of making three-dimensional surface patterns.” 

Highest Quality Ingredients 

Made from organic, fair trade, lead-free dark chocolate imported from the northern lakes region of Italy, Archimedes Chocolates are known for their beauty and distinctly sweet and creamy flavor profiles.”I went all the way to Italy to source the healthiest chocolate.” Jeff continues, “We are a product or our environment; what we surround ourselves with functions as a feedback loop in the mind and body. Appreciate beauty where it is and make beauty where it isn’t… art should never be a means to an end.” 

Why is Archimedes Chocolates for Him? Though the bars are quite substantial, and the strong painting of Archimedes on the box is arguably masculine, “80% of our customers are women” says Beaudoin, “and I am constantly hearing the purchase was a gift idea.” He adds, “A novelty was not my intention when creating Archimedes, but that’s what the market is dictating.” 

A natural gift idea for the man in her life? It is indeed. A good headline for your next article? We think so.

About Archimedes Chocolates

Archimedes Chocolates blends geometry with organic dark chocolate to create a beautiful tasting experience. Inspired by mathematical principles found in nature, founder Jeff Beaudoin sculpts each bar into a unique work of art.

Cheryl’s Cookies are the Bomb.  They are so delicious.  I ate the entire box, in 2 days.  That’s 24 cookies, in 2 days!  They are simply fantastic.  I ate the sugar cookies, with buttercream icing, first, then moved to the chocolate chip.  I hid them from my family, because I didn’t want to share.  I know that’s mean, but oh well!  They are that good.

There are so many great options, at Cheryl’s Cookies.  You can get cookies for different occasions, and in different multiple amounts.  They are so delicious, get some for yourself, or a friend, today.

I had to set that picture larger, than usually, so you can see the value of the cookies.  These cookies have made my life better.  As a matter of fact, I already put in an order.  They will be here soon.  You will love these cookies so much, that you will be addicted, too.  I promise.  Thank goodness I’m not a diabetic.  I can’t live without them, now that I know how good they are.

Totally Chocolate has your LOGO in Print!

Posted on November 21, 2020 in 2020 Holiday Gift Guide

I love Totally Chocolate, and their chocolate is so scrumptious.  It’s got a really great taste, and I’ve never tasted Chocolate quite so good.  My entire family feels the same way about Totally Chocolate, they all love it.  I’ve shared with my immediate family, and extended family.  We all feel the same.

I love the flavor of the chocolate with the cookie.  It’s Belgium Chocolate, with a great “sugar” cookie included.  I shared, though I was reluctant to, once I ate mine.  They were so good, and clients would really love this as a gift.  You can also get Dark Chocolate, if preferred.

The chocolates, in the Thank You package, were absolutely delightful.  They were so good, both milk and dark chocolate.  And, anyone would love them, unless they are crazy!  All of this stuff is Grade A, with This Frugal Family.

I so love Totally Chocolate, and the next time I order, for our site, for our fans, I’ll be ordering Chocolate.  So ya’ll get ready, it’s great!  I can’t wait to place my first order with Totally Chocolate.  I’m going to add this to the 14 stockings I do for Christmas, with This Frugal Family’s Logo.  Everyone should love it, if you love Chocolate, like my family.

Have you tried Stuffed Puffs?

Posted on June 8, 2019 in 2019 Summer Gift Guide

Stuffed Puffs are truly amazing.  We love them, here in our household.  The chocolate inside the marshmallow is an added delight.  My 8 year old had a blast roasting up Stuffed Puffs, and putting them on crackers for our family cookout, over Memorial Day.  Everyone loved them, as well.  They went over wonderfully.  We didn’t have to buy the expensive chocolate bars to make our Smores, because they chocolate is in the marshmallow.

The chocolate is absolutely delicious, inside those marshmallows.  It’s equally as good as those bars you buy, for Smores.  Stuffed Puffs will be an added plus for those Graduation Parties, Dad’s Day parties, and even for the 4th of July.  I am going to Walmart tomorrow, to stock up on some more.  We love our Smores, and this is the best way to make them, now.  It’s so convenient, and easy.  The marshmallows stay on the skews just as easily as ever.

There’s so many marshmallows in one bag.  We had 2 bags, and were able to save 1 bag for later.  My sister has a fire pit, so I asked her if we could come there to roast again.  Of course, she said, “Only if you bring those Stuffed Puffs!”  So, we will be doing that soon.

Tonight we are roasting with my in-laws.  They have yet to try Stuffed Puffs.  I’m sure they will be pleased.  They truly are delicious.  And, all you have to add is the graham crackers.

Get yourself out to Walmart, now, to get yourself a package of Stuffed Puffs, at a great value!

Do you like Dried Fruit? You’ll Love Crunchies!

Posted on April 18, 2019 in 2019 Easter Gift Guide

I love Crunchies, and so does my family.  And, to top it all off, it’s good for them.  The fruit is freeze dried, so you don’t have to worry about additives.  It’s all natural, zero concentrates, fillers or artificial fruit centers, and lots more goodness.

Crunchies were opened, as soon as they made it through the door.  The Chocolate Covered Strawberries, were given to my Mother-in-law, because that’s her all time favorite!  The mixed fruit, I’m almost done with now, the mangos (chocolate covered) are going to my mom.  My husband ate the rest.  He loved the Chocolate Covered Bananas most, and he’s not much of a fruit fan, but he downed the Crunchies!

You, too, will love Crunchies.  It’s a snack I don’t want to live without.  When I’m bored during the day, I can snack on it, and not worry about pounds being put on my body.  This is simply wonderful.  It’s all natural, non of the artificial stuff.  Get some for your kids, for Easter.  Perfect Gift!

If you’re looking for the perfect light-weight, on-the-go grab without processed ingredients, Crunchies has you covered with its freeze-dried fruit and new freeze-dried fruit dipped in chocolate. Crafted with real fruit and premium, quality chocolate.

An everyday, or any day snack.  You won’t be able to get enough of Crunchies!  At least my family can’t.  And, I’m glad we found this snack.  It’s so healthy for you.  We are trying to not put any added weight on, so this is perfect for my family.

Chocodates Are Loved By Our Family

Posted on July 20, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

My mom is a date freak, so when I offered her a bag of Chocodates, she jumped.  She says the flavors are all delicious.  Not too rich tasting, but just pure heaven.  She likes the Milk Chocolate the best, but she said the White Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate are tied for second place.  She said she could sit down and eat the entire bag.  When I asked for one, she looked at me as if to say, “Go get your own bag!”  I just laughed.  That’s fine, she is my mother, and doesn’t have to share!

So, I tried the bag of Dark Chocolate, and she’s right, “Fantastic!”  I was never much into dates, but these are absolutely, without a doubt, out of this world.  If you are a date person, you have to try these, even if you aren’t, you should still try them.  I am not, and thought that they were delish!  Even my 21 year old, daughter, tried them.  We didn’t tell her what it was, and she thought it was great, and asked for more.

For some people, there’s nothing quite like the original. Made up of a perfect marriage of premium Arabian dates enrobed in silky smooth cacao rich milk chocolate and pitted with a crunchy and flavour packed almond, this is the Chocodate that started it all.

For those who love chocolate in all flavours and colours, we have a special assorted range for your enjoyment! Savour the complexity of the dark Chocodate, indulge in the light playfulness of the white Chocodate and relish the taste of the silky smooth milk chocolate Chocodate.

Newman’s Own is the Perfect Addition to the Stocking This Year

Posted on October 27, 2016 in 2016 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews


Newman’s Own is a great brand, with great foods.

We received a nice box from Newman’s Own, including Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Organic Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups, Organic Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and more.  These items, though, would be perfect little stocking stuffers.


My 19 year old, daughter, sucked down the Dark Chocolate.  She loves dark chocolate, and said this was terrific.  My 5 year old, son, ate the Organic Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and he says, “yummy”.  You know 5 year olds, they are honest.  And, he loved them.


Newman’s Own has an entire line of foods, including cookies, snacks, candies and mints, etc.  You will love the products from Newman’s Own.


My favorite is pictured above.  I love the Organic Espresso Dark Chocolate Bar.   I, personally, also love the Fig Newmans (Strawberry).  But, the Espresso Dark Chocolate is the ultimate.  You should try both of these items.


Another great product is Organic Newman’s Special Blend – 18ct K-Cups.  I love the K cups from Newman’s Own, especially Special Blend.  This is wonderful.  I am an avid coffee drinker, and this is my go to brand.  With all the brands out there, Newman’s Own is, and has been, my favorite.

About the Company:

In 1982, Newman’s Own started as a tiny boutique operation – parchment labels on elegant wine bottles that Paul Newman filled with his homemade salad dressing and gave to his neighbors as holiday gifts. He expected train wrecks along the way and, instead, got one astonishment followed by another.
