Don’t Talk With Your Mouth Full!

This is my first week at Lake Champlain Chocolates…as a chocolate lover, a dream job come true!  Today I was asked to help cover the phones for a few hours since our receptionist is out sick.  Everything was going smoothly until a tray of Milk Chocolate Pecan Caramel Clusters was put out on the coffee table next to the front desk for visitors to enjoy.  I tried my best to ignore them, but honestly will power is not my middle name.  I rationalized “hey I’m new, I really do need to try all our products” so I quietly tip toed over and took a sample.  DELICIOUS is the only word to describe them!  I did not realize however that these clusters had caramel and just at that moment the phone began to ring.  I ran back over chewing as quickly as I could, but it was too late I missed the call.  A co-worker peered around the corner to see if everything was okay, and there I was evidence in hand still not able to say a word…BUSTED!  I learned a very valuable lesson on my third day – Milk Chocolate Pecan Caramel Clusters and the phone do not mix.  But finding my new Lake Champlain Chocolates favorite was well worth the embarrassment!
