Not all Chocolate is created equal!
Wow, what a furor has erupted after Ed Sheeran said New Zealand needed to lift it’s chocolate game! It seems like he had some bad chocolate in his hotel:
“Those ones they leave on your pillow,” he grimaced. “Like eating newspaper.”
This just goes to show that many large corporates and hotels like to give chocolate, but don’t think about the quality. Now, I have no idea who supplied the chocolate that turned Ed Sheeran off New Zealand chocolate, or the hotel he stayed in.
But this serves as a reminder to those wanting to give chocolate as a corporate gift or hotel chocolate, that not all chocolate is created equal. And not all chocolate leaves a positive impression. I would guess the chocolate he received was purchased by the hotel who wanted ‘cheap.’ Yet if they spend a little more, and get something of high quality, imagine the lasting (positive) impression they will leave on their guests or recipients? After-all, in hospitality, it is attention to detail (even the small details) that separate the good from the average.
This is one of the reasons Kako Chocolate is growing so fast. People who have never tried it, end up raving about it. The hotels we do supply (none in Christchurch, it wasn’t us!) end up buying from us regularly and tell us they get amazing feedback from their guests.
So it goes to show – a little chocolate, done right, can have a much larger effect. So no more skimping and buying cheap chocolate (or expensive chocolate that tastes like cheap chocolate, and we all know there is plenty of that around too). Buy something decent. Buy something NZ made. And buy something that will get people raving.
In other words, buy Kako Chocolate! One of our Salted Caramels or Passionfruit hearts on the pillow will do the job – and the thing is, it isn’t that expensive!
