Today in the Chocolate Factory: Thanksgiving!
Well, it’s that time again. Halloween has officially ended and it’s time to move on to the next holiday.…Thanksgiving! More so every year, I feel this holiday gets skipped over. I swear Christmas items are placed on store’s shelves leaving Thanksgiving with no fighting chance.
With all that in mind, I decided to take a walk back in the factory to check out our renowned Chocolate Turkeys. For those of you who have not taken our factory tour, I will do my very best to describe the process of making chocolate turkeys which is similar to many of our signature seasonal figures.
First, we hand fill the turkey moulds with our delicious chocolate.
Next, we assemble them on our Magnetic Tumbler (this is what makes them hollow on the inside!)
Once they are dry, we have someone “pop” each chocolate turkey out of their mould (no machine necessary here!)
Then we line them up like turkey soldiers so they can be transferred to packaging
Lastly, they are wrapped up with a festive bow and are ready to eat!
Luckily, we make these cute little birds in milk and dark chocolate so take your pick. They are great for place settings or if you really want to get creative you can turn them into an entire thanksgiving centerpiece scene! There goes my imagination, but seriously the possibilities are endless!
So please, I beg you, don’t forget about Thanksgiving!! It is an extremely important holiday of friends, family, food and giving thanks. Gobbling up our chocolate turkeys is just an added bonus!
