Have started to see those chocolate fountains showing up at the yard sales and flea mkts. The ones that all the stores had last year.
I do home shows in my other business. I have a small, very nice chocolate fountain that I use for "booking bait" and to increase attendance. If I can get 2-3 women to each invite 20 (which means in the end I should get a minimum of 20 live bodies to actually attend) then I bring the fountain and the chocolate. They supply the dippin’ stuff. It’s worked well.
I bought the fountain from Sephra (sephrafountains.com) and I get the chocolate from a local supplier (sirchocolate.com).
I can’t imagine using that kind of chocolate for what we’re talking about here. It’s very drippy because in order for it to flow nicely in the fountain there is oil added.
I’d think the health department would not be allowing outside vendors to use these. These fountains do not lend themselves to being outside – wind, bugs, blowing debris, dust – yuck.
If someone is doing these at fairs – are the customers allowed to coat their own skewer of goodies in the chocolate?
