It’s time to take your team building events up a notch. It’s time to try a remote chocolate tasting event. Your team can try the finest chocolate, learn how to taste different samples, and even make their own delicious treats. Intrigued? Here’s what you should know about chocolate tastings:

What is a virtual chocolate tasting?

As the name suggests, a virtual chocolate tasting is a remote event where participants try a variety of different chocolates. Many tastings also include history of chocolate making, steps to taste test the treat, and guidance on making your own chocolate, either during the event or at home.

Why is a remote chocolate tasting event ideal for corporate team building?

A chocolate tasting is a fun, low-pressure way for employees and managers to get together and share an experience. As you walk through the tasting, employees are:


The classes are interactive, which means everyone is alert and participating.


Employees talk about the taste of each treat, compare their favorites, and practice valued communication skills without any “work talk” or looming deadlines.

Enjoying themselves

What better way to boost employee morale than by offering a fun event where everyone actually has fun in the office?

Is DIY tasting the way to go?

You can create your own event by purchasing high-end chocolates online, but who’s going to lead it? The event lead should know about chocolate, how it’s made, what makes each piece taste different, and what ingredients it pairs with. Most offices don’t have a chocolate connoisseur of that caliber, so it’s often easier to set up a virtual event with an expert host and pre-shipped kits with everything needed for an interactive tasting.
