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!
