This giveaway is now closed. The winner has been notified by email. Thank you to everyone who entered. I really wish all of you could have won this great chocolate prize!
I do, that’s for sure. And, I could probably name most of my girlfriends in that category. So, when I had the opportunity to sample chocolates from Dove Chocolate Discoveries, I said an enthusiastic, YES! I received a Dove Chocolatier Starter Kit that included everything that a new Chocolatier would get in her Business Start Up Kit. Things like Chocolate Brownie Truffle Mix, Chocolate Mousse Mix, Chocolate Chai Tea, Chocolate Martini Mix, and all the forms and paperwork necessary to start your chocolate business. Last night, I invited some girlfriends over and had a Chocolate Fondue party:
We had fresh strawberries, fresh pineapple, gluten free vanilla cookies, a gluten free cake cut up into cubes, and gluten free pretzels to dip in this divine dark chocolate fondue. But guess what I wound up dipping:
We had a FABULOUS time, and I would bet that if this had been an actual home party to sell these chocolate products, all I would have had to do was lay out the order forms. They are so delicious that I do believe they would sell themselves.
Here are some chocolate trends that I certainly didn’t know:
*American consumers average 10-12 pounds a year, while our friends in the UK eat almost twice that. Aggregated, this is 2.8 billion pounds of chocolate per year consumed in the U.S. – nearly half of the world’s supply.
* More than 50% of adults prefer chocolate to other flavors.
*Men and women purchase chocolate in equal amounts
*More chocolate is consumed in winter than any other season
*$16 million in chocolate was sold in the U.S. in 2010
*While milk chocolate is the preferred chocolate flavor, dark chocolate consumption has increased perhaps to its suggested health benefits
Now, with Dove Chocolate Discoveries, you can become a Chocolatier. A Chocolatier is the name given to a DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ sales force team member. A Chocolatier samples chocolate, encourages purchase, invites people to a Chocolate Tasting party and encourages others to become Chocolatiers. I can’t think of a more fun way to earn money that by selling chocolate! Work from home, have fun parties with chocolate goodies to sell, and have Dove at your back.
Dove gives these six reasons to consider joining the more than 15 million Americans in the direct selling industry:
Freedom: Work for yourself and be independent, setting your own business goals.
Flexibility: Set your own hours and schedule work around family priorities.
Finances: Pay bills, take that special vacation or replace your full time income. How much you earn is entirely up to you!
Fuel Your Development: With top notch training programs and tools, you’ll gain entrepreneurial business skills and savvy that will make you a hot commodity in any market.
Friends: Meet new people through Tasting Parties and a supportive network of Chocolatiers.
Fun: Love what you do and share that joy. It doesn’t feel like work when you make people happy! After all who doesn’t love chocolate?
With over 100 years of candy-making experience behind us, DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ is dedicated to creating the ultimate chocolate experience – in the comfort of your own home, providing an opportunity to share sweet moments with family and friends.
DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ launched in February 2007 as one of the latest ventures from Mars, Incorporated.Now YOU can become a Chocolatier, and have fun while earning money. To get started, you need a business kit:
The starter kit is a $200 value but costs only $79. It includes order forms, catalogs, hostess cards, business cards, plus enough chocolate products for sampling at your first 4-6 chocolate discoveries parties. You’ll even get the fondue set shown here.
