Snackadabra Family

Posted by Michelle Silberman on


We at ChocAmo are made up of people with passion, not only for Cookie Cups, but also a zest for life. 

Meet Our Chief Cookie Officer:

Michelle Silberman

As a self-proclaimed Cookie Connoisseur, Michelle's idea of the Cookie Cup was only a dream at the age of thirteen. However, when she pitched the idea in a class during her time at Drexel University it was a hit. With the encouragement of her professor, her passion and drive, the Cookie Cup came alive. 

Having traveled 22 countries and having eaten approximately 483 by now, it is Michelle's mission to share her love of this childhood classic and transform it into combinations no one has ever imagined! Aiming to bring people together at home or events, and share the wealth that is the Cookie Cup throughout Philadelphia, and the world!

Michelle's quote to live by:

"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid"
