I have been assigned the task of checking out chocolate fountains to purchase for our hotel. One of our catering competitors has purchased one of these fountains. They have suddenly become all the rage. My own mother went to a wedding last month and she can’t stop talking about how wonderful it was.
I think they look beautiful, but I am concerned that they are terribly unsanitary. All that gooey chocolate sitting there for three hours collecting dust particles, sneeze fragments, dirty fingers dipping the fruit, double-dipping of said fruit—yuck! I don’t think I want to partake (I admit this sort of thing probably bothers me way more than it does most people).
Has anyone had any experience with them?
I snagged this picture from a web site that sells them. They are very expensive - $2,000 - $3,000, depending on the size. (update: I just got their catalog in today's mail. The smallest one - 27" is $3700 and then you still need accessories making it well over 4 grand - Yikes!) They would rent for $400 (not counting the fruit and other dippers). I think that once people realize how unsanitary they are, there won’t be many renters. What do you all think?
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
