With four days to go, piq chocolates needs less than $500 to successfully fund a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign to make custom chocolates. If you've always wanted to be immortalized in chocolate, they can do it. The Austin-based company lets customers design squares, bars and small 3D chocolates online and then produces them for delivery around the country. They plan to get chocolates to backers by mid-December so this is a chance to create a holiday card that no one would ever toss. Because they can eat it!
