On Sunday, November 2, Chocology had the honor of participating in the Long Island Chocolate Festival and what a day it was! People young and old came out to taste, look at and experience chocolate at it’s finest. We got to meet lots of people and give samples of our great chocolate, including our new product, Fat Ass Fudge.
The event coincided with the announcement of our newly acquired company, Fat Ass Fudge. We had the opportunity to hand out samples of our new fudge and it wasn’t long until there was a sea of people standing in line to buy it. We were pleased to hear, “This is the best fudge I’ve ever had,” many times throughout the event. Fat Ass Fudge, made with organic goat’s milk and butter, was a hit. We pretty much sold out by the end of the festival.
We also sold our new test product, Espresso Ganache Truffles. The truffles were meant to be samples, in an effort to discover if they would be popular enough to sell. When participants began to ask if they could buy a box to take home though, we shifted gears and put it up for sale at the event. Several people left with a box of the Espresso Ganache Truffles before we even officially have it on the market! Our testing efforts seem to be a success. We sold out.
Madeline truly got a chance to shine with her doggy treats. She worked hard before the festival to choose treats that were all organic and safe for puppies. She tested them out on her dog Logan well beforehand and also designed the Chocology Pets logo, made banners and signs and created the doggy treat packaging. She was a world-class entrepreneur on Sunday, presenting the puppy products to passersby. Madeline’s doggy treats sold out in the first two hours of business. Madeline also had 197 voters register for her “Delicious Data” research project entitled What’s Your Favorite Chocolate? -
to find out the results you will have to go to her ChocologyKids.wordpress.com
blog next week. Now that’s success!
All in all it was a wonderful day. We met lots of great people and were proud to offer products that everyone enjoyed.
