"This was a great virtual event. Informative, good interaction, donation to a worth cause, and the chocolate kit itself was very high quality & had more to it than I had expected. Each bar had some aspect to add to the experience. happy with the whole experience."
Liz D., Philadelphia, PA
"I was thrilled to discover these delicious dark chocolate brands that I never knew existed. The White Label Jamaica Bachelor's Hall 72% was my favorite by far. The other 3 bars we tasted were excellent too. The Letterpress Tanzania 70% dark was my next best favorite. I have much more appreciation for really good chocolate now!
Understanding more about the background of each chocolate source made me appreciate good chocolate even more. It was an eye opening education and I really enjoyed the experience."
Rachel G., Holmdel, NJ
"Very cool concept, enjoyed the generous portions of chocolate and learned a lot. My daughters and wife really enjoyed as well! I will email you a link to the video for my wife's instagram "reel" from the tasting."
Chris L., Lawrenceville, NJ
"I enjoyed learning about where chocolate comes from and how each cacao bean can taste different. I am not a fan of dark chocolate (too bitter for my taste buds) but I did like the White Label chocolate. This was a very informative and fun event. Thanks 😊
Fun way to learn about chocolate while getting to eat it."
Deb F., Bloomfield, NJ
"Really great event, since I was working from home, I was able to share the experience with my family. I love dark chocolate so it was so much fun to try dark chocolate from all over the world. Delicious!"
Emily S., Stewartsville, NJ
Thank you for the best presentation I ever attended! Your session was full of information and enthusiasm. I love to visit Chocolate factories. Please invite me for the next event.
Glenn virtually took us to the Chocolate plantations and factories. We felt like physically around the place. His in-depth knowledge about chocolate was amazing and the details were presented so clearly to make me to visit the place in person. It kindled chocolate tasting passion in me. Well done Glenn.
Kasi S., Morganville, NJ

I really enjoyed the different chocolates (white label was the best!) and appreciated the whole experience.
Please come back and do this again!"

"Chocotastery offers such a neat experience!"
Oscar G., Ixtapa, Jalisco, Mexico
"Glenn and his tasting was a very memorable experience! I've never tried chocolate the way he taught our group how. It was fun learning the different notes, the mouthfeel of chocolate and even the way a bar snaps when you break off a piece. Aside from the tasting, Glenn has SUPERB customer service. We had several international team members and he worked hard to get their chocolate to them so they can participate with those of us here in the US. I appreciate the way he went above and beyond for us!"

Greta M., Cranford, NJ
"Glenn was a pleasure to work with from the moment we booked our large international team's end of year chocolate tasting and he was a wonderful host during the event. His presentation about the origins of chocolate and chocolate making was most informative. The chocolate bars that were included in our tasting box were all delicious, yet surprisingly different, and Glenn guided us expertly through our virtual tasting. By the end of the session, he had successfully turned all of us into gourmet chocolate aficionados and there is no turning back now :-)"

Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun, interactive virtual event!"
Amanda D., Telford, PA

"Mindfulness in presentation of history, and the process and then .... the much anticipated tastings! Loved comparing and contrasting the difference between four unique bars: the visual, the aromas, the auditory and gustatory!"
Shirley L., Toronto, Ontario, Canada
"Glenn, thank you for providing this opportunity to participate in the tasting on 3/20 related to four chocolate makers working in the Dominican Republic using Dominican cacao. You know I have a long interest in the DR and in the last decade, the cacao grown there and the chocolate made with it. There is a small craft chocolate movement beginning in the country and you were able to highlight it today. I know there is more to come but today was an excellent representation of four chocolate makers that are making world class chocolate and keeping more value in country for the cacao produced there. We should be able to find these bars on the shelf next to other fine or craft chocolate on the market today. I have been following these people on social media for some time and having the chance to meet virtually and interact was a great experience for me and you really made my day. Thanks Glenn."
Thomas F., Ridgefield, NJ
La Chorena Chocolate
"We loved our chocolate tasting with Glenn. He really knew everything about how to make chocolate and the whole process from tree to bar. Then we got to taste some really good chocolates."
Seth G. & Rachel H., Livingston, NJ
"Replace, or rather combine, your wine flights with your chocolate flights and you will be happy you did so. Glenn's Chocotastery provides the perfect opportunity for chocolate lovers to become chocolate experts. This chocolate tasting experience makes for a fun date activity, social hour with the girls, or even a fun mother-daughter day. Glenn is very knowledgable of the topic and his admiration for its craft is infectious. The chocolate bars are not a snack, but have become a collectors item. It has become a hobby to analyze the packaging, place of origin, and chocolate content of the chocolate bars. As if chocolate couldn't be loved any more, after Glenn's Chocotastery, I now have a new appreciation for craft chocolate."
Eileen R., Kendall Park, NJ
"The Chocotastery's Virtual Chocolate Tasting was a great experience for my husband and I to enjoy together. While we both enjoy dark chocolate, it was so intriguing to learn the process from bean to bar. Glenn was an excellent host and provided lots of interesting details for us. The best part though, was being able to try unique bars and being able to identified underlying flavors with the group! We would highly recommend this tasting to family and friends."
Jessica H., Coralville, IA
"Our team's virtual chocolate tasting with Chocotastery was phenomenal! To quote my manager, 'best team event ever.' Glenn was so great to work with - he took care of everything and made my life so easy (from setting up the zoom to keeping me up to date on shipping statuses, etc.). He was also able to accommodate our multi-national team with shipping and many different time zones. The tasting itself was such a fun experience. We learned a lot about chocolate and had some laughs about which chocolate we preferred. It was a great way to do something different with the team over the virtual format. I HIGHLY recommend the virtual chocolate tasting with Glenn. I know that my company will be coming back for more team events in the future. Thanks Glenn for all your help and for such a fun and informative experience!"
Kelly A., Chicago, IL
"The two hours we spent with Glenn learning the process of chocolate making from the tree to bar was absolutely fascinating. Being able to taste extraordinary examples of the effort come to life was the proverbial frosting on the cake. I would do it again as I'm sure I'm missed something."
Rene H., Troy, NY
"I absolutely loved the tasting! I learned so much about craft chocolate, and it was an amazing experience to learn how to properly experience these products. I highly recommend this!"

Suzanne F., Northampton, MA
