Both these candy companies use a design firm out of Atlanta called Green Olive Media for their packaging work. Green Olive works with some of the best restaurants and brands around the south, and I've always really liked the aesthetics of their work. Apparently I'm not the only one, since their work for Goo and O&S was recently recognized with American Package Design Awards.
These are pretty prestigious awards and reflect well on the design choices of Green Olive and the marketing folks at our local chocolatiers, one of whom you might know from her Bites comments and her wildly popular food blog. Kudos to our local heroes! But not Kudos Bars. Those things are inferior chocolate.
Now the stuff ain't cheap at $12.99 for a 5-ounce box, but that probably will keep my consumption at reasonable levels. Plus I found out that they have free shipping on orders over $50! That's only two boxes of each flavor of Nib Brittle.
I'm so weak ...
