ChocolateLife Memberships

ChocolateLife Memberships

There are three levels of membership on TheChocolateLife; Free, Monthly, and Annual.

When you become a member of TheChocolateLife, you’re joining one of the oldest independent online communities dedicated to exploring the worlds of cocoa and chocolate. Founded in January 2008, TheChocolateLife has counted well over 10,000 members from more than 160 countries on 6 continents since its founding.

Benefits of a FREE Membership

The primary benefits of your free membership are:

  • The ability to comment on any post. This includes the ability to react using a selection of emojis.
  • You’ll receive email updates when when new stories are posted – in fact, the full story gets delivered directly to your email in box!
Note: Even with a free membership as you browse TheChocolateLife you may notice that some stories are tagged “Members.” These can only be viewed by paid members.

The Benefits of PAID Memberships

After over a decade of providing 100% of the content on TheChocolateLife for free, life in the time of COVD has forced me to rethink the policy of giving everything away for free.

Memberships provide many of the benefits of Patreon without having to set up a separate Patreon account. A Paid memberhip in TheChocolateLife helps support the activities and mission of site.
