Take S’Mores Up a Notch

With fall comes s’mores: graham crackers and toasted marshmallows and chocolate. Mmm. Brings back memories of childhood (well, maybe a few more recent memories as an adult, too).

We took our s’mores up a notch to make them a really special dessert experience. We replaced the generic, run-of-the-mill chocolate bars with truffle Cubze. We just sliced the individial Cubze in two and then sandwiched the pieces with the toasted marshmallow between the graham crackers. Quite excellent! To make the experience even better…our guests were able to enjoy the inspirational thoughts about happiness that were wrapped into each piece. Some guests even took their witty little happy thoughts home with them for future inspiration and as a memory of our fun time together. 

We gave our guests a choice of dark chocolate: mint, orange, raspberry, sea salt or the original. For the milk chocolate lovers we offered: cappuccino, peanut butter and cookie. These were certainly delicious and memorable desserts. Give it a try!

Corporate Gift Choices: Unique is better than Ubiquitous

Many times a well-known brand signifies quality. However, a nationally branded product is ubiquitous – available at all types of outlets from department stores to warehouse clubs. These products by virtue of their wide-spread availability aren’t particularly special. If you want a truly memorable gift that demonstrates how much you care about your relationship, then searching out a unique gift is something to think about.

There are many choices for local, hand-crafted or artisanal gifts. Food is a particularly fun way to present a unique gift that isn’t readily available on the mass market. Whether it is hand-crafted chocolates, or locally made wines or cheese, you can choose a special gift that will demonstrate the extra care you put into the selection and complement your message of “thanks.”

Going the extra step in choosing your corporate gift will remind your customers, clients and employees how important their relationship is to you. Instead of going online to the “gift basket” Web site or dropping by the local warehouse club, contact a local business.

Many small businesses, like The Happy Chocolatier, offer a complete corporate gift service creating a customized gift collection and shipping the gifts.
