Greetings to you, the lucky finder of this keyset. After more than two years, we finally meet again
(I shake you warmly by the hand). Once again, my factory is open for visitors, so please go ahead and come to taste the new flavours produced in our German facilities!
Released almost two years ago, SA Chocolatier was the first keycap set that I’ve ever made. Inspired by the
chocolate wrappers of the 2005 motion picture adaptation of Roald Dahl’s masterpiece, Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, GMK Chocolatier is the second iteration of this set.
Q: Why am I using blue accents?
A: Because my idea for SA Chocolatier was initially to release the set in three flavours
- Original Cherry Corp. profile
- High quality 1.5mm thick keycaps with doublsehot legends that will never fade.
- Made in Germany by GMK electronic design GmbH
- Custom chocolate colors matched to what the SA run should have looked like.
Q: What do you mean with “what the SA run should have looked like?”
A: Chocolatier’s alphas (as well as the modifiers) were washed off compared to the plastic samples I had with me. the difference is quite noticeable with 1976 and some people (including me) noticed that the spacebar had a stronger color than the rest of the alphas.
After some consideration, I’ve opted for a more conservative approach for the core of this set, although with some minor eccentricity.
With the goal of encouraging the reusability of these keycaps with other sets, I’ve also included a second Tab key. With just that extra key, now people could potentially use Chocolatier’s modifiers at the same time in, for example, an HHKB and a standard fullsize keyboard.
By popular demand, the novelties are back! A small pack of novelties that adds some more options for your enter and escape keys.
Some people like to have an accent color even on their spacebars. This kit provides all the spacebars you’d need in GMK Chocolatier’s blue accent color.

What’s going on, what happens now?
This is an interest check for GMK Chocolatier. And although I’ve figured out the kits and there won’t be any
major change or any new kit. It’s time to gather interest, get quotes, and color samples.
Two weeks ago, I sent GMK a package to the factory which contained some plastic color samples,
which were inmediatly forwarded to their plastic supplier. Given how well the process went with Serika, I’m
confident that they’ll meet my request and we’ll get the perfect colors for this set.
I’ve also been in talks with Novelkeys as I’m interested on having him as the US distributor of not only the set, but also other extras, such as a deskmat.
The approach for my sets has changed over the years and it has accentuated with Jamón, Chocolatier, and ISJGEFTWC (also known as Samurai Blue). I want the set to be functional and affordable, I want the stores to have an easy time packaging and sending the sets, I want the keycaps to have a good QC, and I want the manufacturer to have an easy time making these sets by not offering an overwhelming number of kits.
Regarding collaborations, don’t hesitate to contact me, over Discord, keebtalk, reddit, etc. There are plenty of ways to do it.
For updates, I’d suggest either following my blog, this thread, or my Instagram account.
Thanks for reading!
