Similar to a Tupperware or Mary Kay party, Dove Chocolate Discoveries tasting parties are a new type of social gathering for sweet-lovers of any age. Otsego resident Christine Oelschlager has done over 100 parties in two years and said she enjoys every aspect of her job as a chocolatier.
“They’re just a lot of fun,” Oelschlager said. “What I’ve been finding is people have done the other parties before and this is a new thing to bring to their circles of friends.”
The in-home parties are free to host and include a taste test of several different Dove products for all in attendance as well as free chocolates for the host. Common tasting items include chocolate smoothies, baking chips, brownie and cookie mixes, a chocolate martini mix and chocolate-covered espresso beans.
The host can choose specific items or flavors to try, and Oelschlager said she has done many themed parties.
“Each party can be a totally different experience,” she explained. Afterwards, party-goers can order some of the delectable treats they’ve tried or choose from a catalog of nearly 70 items.”
