Wanted – Funny Stories!
November 14, 2018

My Box of Chocolates is Live on Alexa!

Alexa, Open My Box of Chocolates!

You can now ask Alexa to “open my box of chocolates” and she’ll introduce you to our new experiment in conversational stories. Pick a chocolate and enjoy a fun story to go along with the candy.

Still Experimenting to Find the Best Ingredients

Like any chocolatier worth their salt, the team at Tellables is still searching for new and different ingredients to improve what we’re cooking up. The current My Box of Chocolates voice app is very much a work in progress. But it’s a big step for us in the realization of our goal.

Bite-Sized Stories and Conversations

We believe people will increasingly ask their voice assistants for engaging bite-sized stories. We also think people will enjoy talking about the story and sharing their thoughts with others. The My Box of Chocolates platform combines mini stories with mini conversations.

Introducing Assortment Number 1

The stories in our first chocolate assortment are designed to spark personal memories and inspire listeners to share stories of their own experiences. Assortment Number 1 also introduces our three chocolatiers and offers a wide variety of flavors.

Things to Try

Once you’ve opened your box of chocolates on Alexa and sampled some of the candies and stories, here are a few fun things to try.

  • Take a look at all the chocolates on our website

  • Ask Alexa for a specific chocolate by name

  • Ask for a candy by its number

  • Ask Alexa what’s in Assortment Number 2

  • Ask how many candies you have left in the assortment

Accepting Author Submissions

We’re now accepting author submissions for our upcoming assortments. We’re already working with some very talent writers and we’re excited about the chocolates currently being cooked up in our shop.
