CHOCOLATE DREAMS… THE HOME FOR TASTY HANDMADE CHOCOLATE TREATS! There’s nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with a chocolate ~ (Linda Grayson, “The Pickwick Papers.”) Editor’s Note: Today, we feature one of Jamaica’s fast growing SMEs – Chocolate Dreams, which is headed by the enterprising Michelle Smith. [caption id="attachment_762" align="alignright" width="200" caption="Michelle Smith, CEO, Chocolate Dreams!"][/caption] So, what’s their story? As we go through this recession, just like most other businesses, not everything is considered “bright and beautiful,” but certainly for Chocolate Dreams, it’s all “deliciously sweet and good” when it comes to its tantalizing chocolate products. “We specialise in making chocolate products of all types, shades, and sizes for a diverse clientele – from weight watchers, the health conscious, for the sensual and erotic at heart, and corporate giving,” said Michelle Smith, head of Chocolate Dreams. Initially established as a home-based operation, Chocolate Dreams was subsequently expanded in 2004 to the point that it now produces any and everything in chocolate and for every occasion. Among its current menu of handmade tasty products are:
  • Gourmet chocolates
  • Chocolate truffles
  • Utopia Bars
  • Flourless chocolate cakes
  • Chocolate covered  coffee beans
  • Chocolate dipped fruits (e.g. Strawberries)
  • Chocolate Covered Tamarind Balls
  • Chocolate Cheesecakes
  • Black Satin Raspberry Chocolate Cakes
Having positioned itself to cater for any event or function, Chocolate Dreams now has available its own attractively designed signature boxes and ribbons. Most interestingly, corporate clients will find they now have a deliciously tasty alternative to specialty gift giving, one that can easily be imprinted with one’s logo or any other designs to be chosen. In the corporate gift-giving line of products, there you will find an assortment of deliciously and appropriately designed chocolate products that can be given to clients as gifts, and at the same time, they provide a unique opportunity to get the word out about your company and its services or products. [caption id="attachment_763" align="alignleft" width="277" caption="Branded Gift Giving Chocolate!"][/caption] So here is an invitation from Michelle: “If corporate gift-giving is what you require and should you be looking for a deliciously tasteful alternative, then let us put your company logo and present it in a three dimensional view on your chocolate. We can make any shape or size to fit your needs.  All you need to do is provide us with your camera-ready artwork of your design, and we will turn your ideas into chocolate treats your clients will gladly thank you for.” Weight watchers and health conscious folks weep not! Your concerns have been carefully considered and provided for in this chocolate paradise. For example, under the expert guidance of Mrs. Smith, the local chocolate goddess, you’ll find health-smart favourites to include the delicious sugar-free chocolates, which can be made available within 48 hours of the order being made. “These special healthy alternatives are carefully custom-made with the fresh fruit of your choice, and among the favourites are strawberries and cherries to satisfy one’s crave without the additional fat or sugar added to the fillings,” said Mrs. Smith. “These creamy, delicious sugar-free treats are especially appealing to one’s healthy lifestyle.” Another unique ability of Chocolate Dreams is the fact that it can and will create anything in chocolate for any occasion. What do you desire? A centerpiece or party favours? Or do you like the more popular designs and shapes that come in the form of Hearts, School Houses, Airplanes, Cellular Phones, Globes, Shooting Stars, Computers, Golf Balls, Neckties, Cigars, Roses, Horses, Graduation Caps, Slot Machines, Coins, Dollar Signs, Cars, Boats, Over The Hill Bars, Wedding Bells, Umbrellas, Merry-Go-Rounds, or Clamshells? The list is by no means exhaustive because there are hundreds of other unique shapes and designs from which to choose. [caption id="attachment_761" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Chocolate designs!"][/caption] And what of the erotic? No worry. You haven’t been left out… you are very much a part of the equation. As according to Michelle, they do “carry an erotic line, but “shhhhh” not for the fainthearted!” One of the real attractions at most functions these days is the chocolate fountain. This is definitely one of the WOW effects that you can inexpensively add to any function of note. Dipping your favourite fruit, pretzels, marshmallows or cookies into the chocolate fountain is not only scrumptious… it’s entertaining as well. Well, if you had previously wondered where you could get one of these chocolate fountains for your next function – birthday party, wedding, corporate function, etc. - Chocolate Dreams is the home of the REAL chocolate fountain. A chocolate fountain makes for a spectacular centerpiece that will have family members, friends, guests, friends and well-wishers talking about your event for a long time to come. Finally, remember: “Nothing seduces quite like good chocolate. Chocolate floods the senses and leaves one a positive high.” ~ Author Unknown.
