Chocolatey Fun Weekend!

What a fun weekend!! I just got back from Baltimore, MD, where I attended the Dove Chocolate Discoveries National Conference. I met up with a friend in the area (our annual girls' weekend!) and had a blast both at the conference and away!

Some highlights of the conference included being named #10 in the WHOLE COMPANY for my number of shows held last year (from July 1, 2010 until June 30, 2011). I did 63 shows, and was awarded a beautiful custom bracelet on stage at our banquet on Friday night. I was shaking when they announced my name - I was so excited!!

I also got a special tote bag containing a key ring and some of our new products for maintaining consistency of at least $1000 each month in sales. This was my original goal for the year and I feel great to have reached it!

The part that can be most exciting for anyone reading is all of our new products and promotions! We're planning a trip that can be earned by all chocolatiers - it's an all-inclusive vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic next May and you can bet I'll be there!
We also announced some new products, including:
  • Coco-Caramel Crunch,
  • Sugar-Free Dark Chocolates with Caramel,
  • White-Chocolate Pear Flavored Cider,
  • Saigon Swirl Cinnamon Roll Mix, and the return of two favorites from last fall -
  • Spiced White Sipping Chocolate, and
  • Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Baking Mix.
Please feel free to contact me with questions about any of this - it's my job and I love it! We have no territories, so I can help anyone in the 48 contiguous states get the products they'll love, or start a Dove chocolate business for an additional stream of income.

glad you had a good time. It must be fun to get away with your friends at least once a year. You deserve it.
