Slowly but surely, live events are returning.  Our team was ecstatic to attend the recent industry expo in Las Vegas last month.  Anytime we get to share the #FoodGiftLove is a thrill for us!  We love to watch as they savor our sweet and salty snacks while their eyes light up and listen to the sighs of delight as they take in the tasty treats.  It’s always an experience for us, along with our customers.  For years, our distributor partners have seen similar success.  Read on for a few recent case studies showing the power of gourmet treats at tradeshow and other exhibitor-type events:

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we know chocolate is on your mind (just like ours), but chocolate is more than just a sweet treat—it can be transcendent. We don't just claim that; we have evidence to prove it! That transcendent aspect is what we're going to explore using some of our gourmet chocolates, so be prepared for things to get a little steamy.

Love is a language with many dialects.  We love our friends and family, our partners and significant others, and ourselves, but not all love is the same.  In English, "love" covers all of these, but in other languages, one word is not enough. In fact, in Greek, there are seven different types of positive love that we can experience in our lifetime. Few foods encapsulate the language of love the way that chocolate does—every kind of love.  Join me on a journey as we walk through how chocolate suits each of them!
