When you’re hosting an event, custom chocolates make a sweet surprise as guests take their seats. Attendees can unwrap them immediately or tuck them in a bag to enjoy later. Either way, it’s exposure to your logo and an appreciated gesture.
Our client, the United States Marine Corps, celebrated its 237th birthday last month, and it used custom chocolates from ePromos to grace the place settings for 700 people.
“We did red and gold—the Marine Corps colors—in milk and dark chocolate mint. They were placed next to the coffee cup at each place setting,” says Jennifer Homan, a Marine of 23 years who helped plan the celebration. “They really added some color to the white on white in the ballroom.”
With the lights off and the lanterns lit, the chocolate coins made a glittering, classy accent to each place setting. “The whole effect was quite extraordinary,” Homan says.
Even after the celebration, attendees were talking about the logo chocolates. “People were stalking me for the extra chocolate,” laughs Homan. “I brought leftovers to a staff meeting, and they were consumed quickly. The embossed logo turned out beautifully, and they were just very tasty.”
Custom chocolates were a nice touch to a long-standing tradition for the Marine Corps, and Homan couldn’t be more pleased with the added flair they brought to the event.
“They were unique and made a nice addition to a formal celebration,” she says.
