Chocolate sure can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Dark chocolate. Milk chocolate. White chocolate. Fruit based chocolate. Nuts based chocolate. There are so many combinations and permutations of treating chocolate to brighten up anyone’s day. If you have a sweet tooth and eat, breathe, sleep chocolate, then here are five chocolate brands you must follow on Instagram right away!
One of the finest chocolate brands out there, Lindt’s Instagram feed showcases their own yummylicious chocolate offerings, along with desserts and beverages such as hot chocolate, cupcakes, brownies, cookies and more concocted using their chocolate options. Formed in 1845 in Switzerland, Lindt’s truffles and chocolate bars have stood the test of time for good reason.
Not all triangles have to be messy – some triangles are a bundle of joy, as is the case with Toblerone bars. The perfect mix of honey, chocolate and almond nougats, the Swiss sure got it right with Toblerone! And, they have also figured out the perfect recipe for Instagram, ranging from featured chocolate products and pancake recipes to cute-as-a-button chocolate look books.

One of the finest premium chocolate brands, Godiva’s truffles, coffee, biscuits, dipped fruits and more are the perfect gift for a loved one. This Belgian chocolate brand was formed way back in 1926, and they now have a headquarters in New York, as well. Their Instagram page captures the irresistible quality of their products to perfection.
A US division of Lindt, Ghirardelli was incorporated in 1852, and is the third oldest chocolate company in the United States. Ghirardelli is also quite on top of their Instagram game, with delicious photos of their chocolate squares and baked goods using their chocolate chips, as well as yummy food look books.

Hi! I’m Holly and I work in Operations Business Mgmt. We are a small (but mighty!) team that works with the Supply Chain and Commercial teams on new products and plans. What I love about my job: working with lots of cross functional groups, learning about new products before they hit the market, and getting to drive the electric cars!

Remember all those annoying handwriting classes in elementary school? Manuscript. Cursive. Calligraphy. These were the classes that made us think we might have a shot at being a doctor, gauging how messy our handwriting was! So, naturally, when we see something pretty, it is difficult to not be in a state of awe. We came across six amazing hand-lettering artists on Instagram – their work is so good, that, too, in a digital day and age where people hardly handwrite anything!
Mary Kate McDevitt
Philadelphia-based artist Mary Kate McDevitt is a powerhouse of talent to watch out for – her choice of color palettes and simple, yet visually appealing typography is endearing. We also love her penciled out lettering uploads.
An artist and author, Abbey Sy’s Instagram uploads reflect a deep sense of distinct style and careful attention to fine details. We love her collage uploads and scenic pics – good overall variety!
Berlin based Cyril Vouilloz, aka RYLSEE, is a visual artist who also hosts many workshops on lettering. His lettering and design take up a life of their own, with a 3D touch to it. We especially love the lettering uploads, in which he uses objects, such as real pencils – sheer brilliance and innovation!
California-based DIY and lettering artist Leslie makes bespoke pieces, and her work sure stands out. Her Instagram uploads offer a look into her colorful and pretty world – she seems to have a thing for floral motifs, which is easy on the eyes and classy.
Okay, I think @Instagram hates me because no matter how many times I update my software, I don’t have the feature to post multiple things in one post. So I decided to post a still shot instead of the video. Is this happening to anyone else?? . . Been kind of in love with the lettering on vellum thing because the pens write sooooooo smoothly! I’m using the same supplies as the last video that looks like this! The bouquet in the background was created as I watched the @yaochengdesign’s @creativebug watercolor tutorial ?. #springletteringchallenge A post shared by Leslie (@leslie.writes.it.all) on
Dana Tanamachi is a busy designer and hand lettering artist. Her choice of rich colors and unique style will grab your attention and maintain it forever. We like the personal touch to her Instagram account, where she showcases her life behind-the-scenes and also her adorable dog!
Danielle Evans might not have the biggest following in the lettering world, but when you take a look at her food typography, you’ll be amazed with the innovation. So much creativity! Her uploads are simply a yummy feast for the eyes.
Spamming #lunch since 2012™. ? I spoke at @madeinthemiddle in KCMO and was overwhelmed by the warm welcome and care of those in #themiddle. Lots of hardworking, humble talent originates here, sandwiched between the coasts, among them fellow speakers @ann.willoughby @migreyes @jenniferxdaniel @mikeperrystudio and @benradatz. Many thanks to @carpentercollective for hosting such a kick-ass event. #mitmcon2016 #handcraftedtype A post shared by Danielle Evans (@marmaladebleue) on
