I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, getting a little handful of chips from a bag of chocolate morsels when someone was making chocolate chip cookies was about as good as it got. (And yes. In those days, we still ate raw cookie dough with reckless abandon.) These pictures below – from a 2008 entry in our Pic of the Month series - I’m sure bring back some fond memories for many people.
(I can admit that more than once I’ve entered into discussions about the best way to consume an Oreo cookie. But this ad below from 1968 sure makes that cream filling look much more delectable than I can even recall. I may have to buy a bag on the way home.)
Chocolate consumption habits have certainly changed over the years. Take a look at this entry from our collections site.
“By the 1980s, the growth of shopping malls made it possible for specialty retailers to expand quickly. Shoppers with disposable income soon found ready access to stores like Godiva, a gourmet chocolatier. Buying upscale goods, even on a small scale, made many consumers feel accomplished and sophisticated.”
In private events planning, we have first-hand experience that tastes have changed. The way we present some favorite flavors continues to make a reliable favorite treat (like chocolate!) always new and exciting.
Take a look at just a few of the chocolate sundries and specialty desserts we’ve featured at weddings and private events.
Of course, there’s always our own Greenfield Village Fudge. Or the option of a not-your-run-of-the-mill chocolate fountain.
The point is: chocolate continues to delight and bring guests together. Do you have any exiting chocolate dessert delights to tell about?
