Kristen (Thursday, 16 February 2012 09:59) Thank you!!! The mini bottles dipped in chocolate, drizzled with purple icing, were a huge hit at my bachelorette party!!! It definitely got the evening started off right, and we even saved the chocolate for dessert after a long night out 🙂

Ken and Heather Mears (Thursday, 17 November 2011 15:35) THANK YOU! Chocolate Traditions was so incredibly kind, generous and absolutely perfect in every way! Thank you for our awesome upgrade and for tackling our request for bacon. Truly – bacon was the surprise hit for the evening!  I cannot begin to thank you enough for your kindness. Truly, you have blown us away.
Best, Ken and Heather Mears

Christina & Ali – AGT (Thursday, 04 August 2011 20:37) Bob, I don’t think that I ever thanked you for the apples. They were sent to us about 8 months ago and I feel bad I neglected to thank you. So here goes… Thank you so much. The apple pie was amazing. That is our favorite flavor. Also thanks for the chocolate fountain on the tour. It was amazing!! Yes it was me eating all the chocolate!! Your so kind and I want you to know it meant so much to Christina and I. Please tell Anna hello from me. Blessings, Ali, (CHristina and Ali AGT)

Annmarie (Thursday, 04 August 2011 18:01) Thank you guys for a wonderful enjoyable fountain. That’s was a big highlight of the event. Sorry I didn’t get to greet the chocolate person:)

Kungun Mathur Jain (Saturday, 30 July 2011 11:37) We used Chocolate Traditions for our dessert at our wedding, and they did a great job! They were very responsive and made the planning for the event easy. All of our guests enjoyed it and commented on their great presentation!

Casey Nicoloff (Friday, 29 July 2011 13:57)  We used Chocolate Traditions for our wedding favors, we went with the bride/groom pretzels and oreos, they were a HUGE hit. We had a number of guest compliment on them. I would totally use them again. My “husband” and I keep trying to think of ideas for parties so we can have some choc. 🙂

Alexis Riley (Wednesday, 27 July 2011 07:13)  We used Chocolate Traditions for our wedding March 5, 2011, at the Orlando Wyndham resort. We loved the service and set-up, I would definitely use them again and highly recommend!!!

Juana Lopez (Monday, 25 July 2011 21:03)  We fell in love with Chocolate Traditions and Bob at a tasting we attended. My mother in law decided to contact Bob so he could provide a chocolate fountain, as a surprise gift to my husband, at our May wedding. The entire staff was amazing! Planning process went easy and the email reply was great. Here we are almost two months later and our guest are STILL talking about how delisious the chocolate was! I am hoping we can find another event to use their services again, and soon!

Sandi (Monday, 25 July 2011 10:12) We used Chocolate Traditions to provide a chocolate fountain at our St. Augustine reception and received rave reviews from all of our guests. The staff was courteous, the service from the company was excellent, and questions in the planning process were answered quickly. I would recommend this company to anyone!

Jamie (Saturday, 23 July 2011 10:23) We used Chocolate Traditions to provide the favors to our guests for our wedding. We went with the bride/groom chocolate covered strawberries! The ones my now husband and I ate were absolutely fantastic and when we returned from our honeymoon and heard post-wedding feedback from our guests, everyone was still raving about how wonderful and unique they were! If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing (unless it was to add more strawberries and maybe even other chocolate covered treats for our guests to enjoy)! Thank you Chocolate Traditions for making our wedding so sweet!

April (Saturday, 13 November 2010 19:05) I had the pleasure of trying the Crushed Oreo Granny smith apple.. i must say that had to be the most delightful treat that I have had in such a long time. The blend of the different flavors went perfectly together. Yummy treat

Chocolate Traditions (Thursday, 23 September 2010 20:03) Came across this great review from Project Wedding online…From Katie1508. “If you’re looking for the perfect extra feature for your wedding, Chocolate Traditions is your company! A chocolate fountain may seem overplayed, but I can assure you your guests will LOVE it! Their chocolate is devine, their service is impeccable, and they will dazzle everyone. Everyone loved this feature at my wedding, and we did it instead of doing cheap, cheesy wedding favors. I think it worked out better, as people’s memory of the chocolate fountain has lasted far longer than some cheap trinket would have. I’m so glad we decided to use them, they are the best!”

Thank you Katie…this is why we love what we do!

Lane (Saturday, 24 July 2010 20:08)  I had the pleasure of dipping into your chocolate fountain today at a store function. You guys are amazing. I love your site and your ideas. Would love to try more!!! =)

Sarah Langford (Thursday, 22 April 2010 16:42)  Thank you SO MUCH for the chocolate Gators for UF’s College of Pharmacy class party!! Not only were they absolutely DELICIOUS, but sooooooo adorable too!!! Everyone loved them!!! You guys are the BEST!!!!!!! #1 chocolatiers in town!

Natalie Lambert (Friday, 02 April 2010 09:21)  Just wanted to say thank you again and again, and again! For each time that you have come through with an amazing basket of goodies for my clients, me personally and my charitable causes. Everything is delicious, always gets rave reviews and the shipping boxes are amazing!

Thanks so much ~ fan for life! Natalie

Allison M. Yates (Wednesday, 10 March 2010 08:54)  We cannot WAIT to see what Chocolate Traditions creates for my very own special day in January :)!
We would NEVER dream of using any other specialty company besides Jill and Bob…we are so excited!

Erin Johnson-Catering Sales Manager (Friday, 18 December 2009 11:03)  Jill, Congrats on the new site! It looks great! I just wanted to drop a line to say hi and how much we appreciate the fabulous customer service and product you provide! We love your Dad too! We look forward to going into the New Year as partners! All our best from Casa Monica! Chocolate Traditions is amazing!

Eva (Friday, 18 December 2009 10:35) Jill, I wanted to say thank you for your wonderful customer service as well as your products! Because of you our daughter’s wedding reception had a beautiful chocolate fountain that the guests are still talking about. Any time I go to a wedding show I try to stop by to see you and your Dad so that I can tell anyone within hearing distance what a joy it is to do business with you!

Nana Bev (Monday, 23 November 2009 07:56) Chocolate Traditions is a treasure trove of marvelous treats. Everything I’ve received from them is absolutely delicious … the brownies are heavenly, the big, luscious strawberries fresh and rich with chocolate, their specialty products are delightful and unique. I’ve just ordered the Thanksgiving Turkeys and they are truly a work of art and will be a huge hit at our Thanksgiving feast. Jill, Bob and Zoe do a wonderful job and put their heart into everything they make. Don’t miss out on a decadent treat!

Thank you again.  The apples were a HIT!  We brought a few home and yesterday my nephew kept cutting them up for everyone to eat all day long.  It was amazing.  Thanks.  I will call you for the next event we have.  Kathy  –  July 2009

We received the apples Saturday and they are delicious. Thank you we appreciate you sending them. Pam  –  July 2009

Hi Jill! I wanted to thank you for making such wonderful apples for my dad’s retirement dinner. They were so large and fresh. Everyone loved them and couldn’t stop talking about them. The apples added the perfect touch to an evening of honoring a teacher. Thanks again, Yoshika – June 2009

You have the best chocolate fountains EVER! Eva – May 2009

Jill,   Thanks, you and your dad are the greatest!!  Myra  –  April 2009

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful and very yummy treat basket. It was beautiful and delicious. We will be ordering from you again! Thanks!!  Rebecca L. Meyer – February 2009

Thank you Jill – it went over great with our guests!!  Just wish that Ivy and I had a chance to taste it ourselves – with all that went on we never had a chance to actually eat anything from the chocolate fountain – as it was we were not even able to really eat much of anything – but we had a great time – thank you for making Ivy’s dream come true!!  Mark  –  December 2008

Jill, they loved it!  The entire basket was empty within 30 minutes of delivering it!  Babs  –  December 2008

Jill:  Thanks so much.  The cars look awesome!  Dr. Brenda C.  –  December 2008

Chocolate Traditions: Great chocolate mixed with dipping items from the Palace combined to be a hit with the guests.  Bob was really great behind the station.  Kerline Docteur [kerline@joiedevieevents.com] – July 2008

The strawberries looked great and were a big hit! Thank you again for taking on that challenge! Julie Compton – June 2008

I want to say a big thank you for making my daughter sweet 16 special, everything was great.  Thanks again,  Sharon  – May 2008

Joy Nudd, Garrett Nudd Photography  – May 2008

Dear Jill, just wanted to thank you for the amazing apples and strawberries yesterday for the bridal shower.  They were MAGNIFICENT and added such a special touch to the dessert display and the favors. Everyone at the shower enjoyed them and you can bet no one forget to take a favor at this party!

Thank you again for taking such good care of me – I am looking forward to working with you on your advertising!  Happy New Year!  Karen Lee – December 2007

Thank you so much for your wonderful contribution to our very successful event.  I have had the opportunity to discuss your services many times since.  I have no doubt you will have a VERY successful venture in our community.  If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate… Thank you again and Very Happy Holidays!   Jo Alaniz – December 2007

I have already had a couple people ask me who I used…so hopefully you will all be getting some calls soon!!  I owe you all so much…we are all still talking about how amazing those three weeks were (honeymoon included on that – Hawaii was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!).  But the wedding weekend, oh, it was such a blast, and because of all of you, I really did not stress out at all.  I even got compliments on how calm I was…now that is also amazing, because you all probably now how tense I can get!!  That is how great you all are!! You all really are second to none!!! Michelle – December 2007

I forgot to mention thank you so much for the pink chocolate fountain at my Nov 4th wedding in Mystic Dunes.  It was a hit!!!  And the pink chocolate looked so beautiful!  Everyone keeps talking about it.  Unfortunately with all the pictures and running around I didn’t get a chance to eat from it, but at least my guests did and they loved it.  Again super thanks!!!   Ivette R.  November 2007

Jill, I just had to let you know that the apples were the hit of the wedding! Everyone is still talking about them. Please let me know when you open your shop. I will definitely be shopping there! Thanks again for making the wedding such a big hit!  Dee & Brett  October 2007

Our company was an exhibitor at the FAR Convention last Thursday and Friday.  We were very close to the chocolate fountain that was sponsored by ReMax.  I just wanted to let you know it was delicious and a big hit.  Kudos to you and Chocolate Traditions!  Linda H.  August 2007

Everything went perfectly with the wedding!  I couldn’t have asked for anything more.  The chocolate fountain was a big hit with everyone!  You guys did a great job with everything.   Julie C.   June 2007

Hi Jill, We had an absolutely great time at the wedding. The chocolate fountain was a huge hit…we received lots of comments and compliments throughout the night. Your attendant was great, too. He was super nice and kept the chocolate flowing.  He said he had to refill it several times…guess that’s a good sign! Thanks for helping to make our wedding so special. It was a pleasure working with you! 🙂   ~Ellie  June 2007

Thank you.  Everyone raved about the chocolate even weeks after the wedding. Unfortunately we did not get to enjoy much of it.  Your staff was very warm and friendly. My husband and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding reception one to remember.  Mr. & Mrs. Carter  June 2007

Everything was just beautiful and delicious!  Most of my guests had never seen a chocolate fountain and believe it or not, were not sure of what it was until I jumped in!  I didn’t get to munch on it very much, but what I did have was fabulous!  You’ve found a wonderful niche and do it well!  Thanks for everything!    Michelle I.   June 2007

A big thanks for the great apples tonight – you are the best and I truly love you and your product! Thanks for showcasing! J  Tracy L. Marini, PBC   Eventfully Yours   June 2007

The fountain and pretzels were a big hit. All and all everything was wonderful, thanks so much for your help.  Phyllis B    May 2007

What a pleasure it is to deal with you!  Everything was perfect with the favors….and they were so delicious as usual.  Thank you for delivering everything as promised.  We had a magical weekend and thank you for helping to make it so perfect!  Corey D.   May 2007

What a beautiful job you did with the favors for my daughter’s shower: the chocolate covered strawberries. The ladies went crazy over them!!!  Coreene D.  March 2007

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!  The Bride and Groom pretzel rods were a HIT!!  I got so many compliments on them.  PLUS they tasted better than I thought.  I’ve had chocolate covered pretzels before, but nothing like these.  I don’t particularly like white chocolate, but I liked yours.  They were the perfect favor for my guests.  The kids especially loved them!!  I would recommend your company to anyone.  Thank you so much for helping in my special day!  Thank you again,  Tracy F.  February 2007

We would like to thank you so much for such a great addition to our wedding.  We had a wonderful time and it was a huge hit.  We were very impressed with the server you provided. He was such a great person.  He really worked with the mishaps of the night.  With the constant rushing of the night we didn’t see the server leave.  Once again thank you for everything.  We will be happy to forward information on to friends in need of a chocolate fountain.   Thanks again,   Laura and J.R. L.  January 2007

The service was great. I appreciate your willingness to work with us. We plan to call on your services again in December for the next party.

Thanks,  Nikkole W., AirTran Airways   January 2007

Jill & Staff – Thanks for all your hard work – we love working with you!  And we love that chocolate!  Melissa, Celebration Hotel

I just wanted to write and thank you so much for everything you did in such short notice. Those apples of yours were to die for!! Everyone loved them they were a BIG hit!!!   Thank you so much again!!  Arlene,  January 2007

Jill, you don’t know me, but I know how fabulous you are for the wonderful apples you made for our wedding.  They were so delicious.  I’m still enjoying them (I was able to save a few in the fridge while I was on our honeymoon).  We will be sure to spread the word and hope to generate a lot of business your way.  Thanks Again, Brenda & Jim D. (Tracy’s Crazy TV Wedding Couple)

I am back from my honeymoon and I wanted you to know that my wedding guests just “oohed and awed” over the drizzling caramel apples.  A few let me know that they were still taking pleasure in the wedding many days after because they were enjoying their apples.  After the wedding, I was surprised that I only had 4 apples to take home.  Jane W.  –  November 2006

Thank you so much.  I just couldn’t believe I didn’t get to meet you.  The fountains were definitely the hit!  Without alcohol being served, the chocolate was the absolute best…I’m sorry again I didn’t get to thank you in person.  I was told you were very professional and helpful and had it all together.  I’m still hearing comments about the great chocolate!!  I did have one older gentleman tell me his wife wanted to redo her kitchen and he told her he’d finally let her do it if she’d put in one of those fountains!!!  J

You will be highly recommended from me AND the bride AND everyone who was there that had the chocolate.  Thanx again!  Rhonda  –  November 2006

The fountain for my daughter’s wedding was the talk of the night.  Last year, Florida Reading used another chocolate company, per their remarks “NO COMPARISON”.  They were sorry to see you go J  Thanks for everything and I also look forward to a fruitful future working with you.  Again, thanks.  Cindy Hernandez, Wyndham Orlando Resort  –  November 2006

Everything was a huge success. Everyone had a great time.  As always, thanks for being there for us!  Saundra Z.  –  November 2006

I wanted to send a quick thank you email.  Everyone loved the chocolate fountain.  They really enjoyed it.  Thank you and I will pass your name around.  G. Boyer  –  November 2006

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH.  Everything was wonderful.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more.  I will definitely call for the next big event.  Thank you again.  Tami R.  –  October 2006

The apples were a HUGE hit!  Everyone thought they were beautiful and they tasted absolutely delicious.  I have to tell you…we had my fiancé (now-husband) and his brother pick them up on the day of our wedding because my mom and I were so busy running around…when he got back to the hotel, he was complaining about how mean/rude the girl working there was to him.  We asked him why he thought that (because we met her previously)…he went on to tell us that he was going to put the apples in the bed of his pickup truck since there was no room in the front with him!  He said she had a fit…told him he HAD to bring them up front with him…that it was too hot and the apples would be ruined…that it was his fiancé’s day, etc.   Please tell her THANK YOU so much!  My mother and I were so relieved that someone knocked some sense into him…it was so hot out that I knew the apples would be ruined if they sat back there for even 10 minutes.  We are forever grateful that she was “mean” to my husband and made him sit squished in his front seat with 80 apples.  J

Anyway, as I said, the apples were wonderful…and I’ll be coming back down the road to purchase more for birthday/Christmas gifts.  Thank you so much,  Jamie L.  –  October 2006

Things went very well and everything was delicious!!  Thanks again for the quick turnaround.  We greatly appreciate it.  Saundra Z.  –  August 2006

The chocolate fountain was a HUGE success!!  You did an awesome job.  To tell you the truth you were so good I didn’t even know you were there.  Everything was all setup and perfect when I walked in the door.  Thank you so much!!  I will most definitely refer you to anyone I know!!  Thanks again!  Stacy  –  July 2006

The chocolate fountain was a huge hit!  Many of our guests had never seen one before and thought it was such a unique addition to our celebration.  Our only regret is that we didn’t get to pay a visit to the fountain ourselves since we were so busy.  However, our best man brought us a sample to our table and the chocolate that you used was absolutely delicious!  It was the best I’ve ever had…even just thinking about it makes me wish I had some right now.  We had several guests inquire about whose idea it was and where we got it, and I happily recommended your company.  Thank you so much – it made our reception that much more memorable.  Leslie & Evan  –  July 2006

Thank you again for the strawberries – they were gorgeous and delicious.  All of the guests gobbled them up and took pictures!  Sandra A.  –  June 2006

The chocolate fountain was a fabulous addition to the reception.  Friends and family have raved about it.  I will certainly recommend you to anyone who inquires or who is looking for something unique to add to their event!  Thank YOU!  Cyndi E.  –  June 2006

Just wanted you to know the strawberries were a big hit at the party.  Thanks so so much for doing such a wonderful job!  From your prompt emails to the delicious chocolate!!!  I made sure everyone knew where it came from  J  Joy Nudd, Garrett Nudd Photography  –  May 2006

The people I have spoken with said the chocolate was SUPERIOR.  We will have to do it again!  I filed your information and have passed it on to some others in the company.  Susan D.  –  May 2006

I want to thank you again for the gourmet white chocolate fountain.  It was the highlight of my daughter’s wedding reception.  I have had so many wonderful compliments about your gracious service and the delicious flavor of the chocolate.  (Thank you for the kind consideration of our 2 “Celiac” guests and their special diet needs!)  THANK YOU!  Sincerely, Susan S.  –  May 2006

Thanks for making my party a hit with the chocolate fountain.  Everyone loved it.  Heike K.  –  April 2006

Jill:  Your performance was flawless.  When I looked for you, you were there and we got nothing but positive comments from our guests.  I would definitely hire you again.  Thank you for helping to make my daughter’s special day even more special.  Best Regards,  Ed D.  –  April 2006

We couldn’t be happier!  The chocolate fountain was such a spectacular image and having it there made the wedding that much more beautiful.  Everyone was marveling at the sight and coming up to us saying “what a great idea it was to have a chocolate fountain”.  My brother’s daughter is getting married in September, in Virginia, and after seeing your fountain they decided to have one at their wedding.  Your professionalism and interactions with us before and during the event made the rental of the fountain so easy, not to mention the beautiful decorated strawberries, yummmmm!!!  We are very happy we chose your company and would do it all again, if we could.  My only regret is that I don’t have another event coming up so we could hire you.  Thank you again for the wonderful job you did.  Sincerely, Shirley E.  –  April 2006

Thanks so much for the wonderful strawberries.  Once again they were a great hit!  You’re the best!  J  Tracy Marini, Eventfully Yours  –  April 2006

Thanks so much for a wonderful prom.  My husband and I enjoyed the fellowship even though I wasn’t available for most of it!  He raved about the spirit you guys have and look forward to getting with you again.  Thanks again for a wonderful evening.  Janice –  CHS

The fountain was definitely a hit with everyone.  It was delicious!  I was especially happy to have the fountain since the cake we had ordered was destroyed in a car accident enroute to the event.  Barbara  –  April  2006

Thank you so much for providing the chocolate fountain-it was phenomenal.  It definitely made our prom a night to remember.  Everyone who tried it said the chocolate was irresistible.  We will be sure to keep in contact with you for upcoming events.  Thanks again, CHS Family – April 2006

Thanks so much for setting out the strawberries tonight.  Of course they were a HUGE hit.  Just wanted you to know that they were fabulous and so are you!  Tracy Marini, Eventfully Yours  –  March 2006

Everyone enjoyed the chocolate fountain.  We had a really great time, and your Dad was great and very professional.  Donna B.  –  January 2006

Those strawberries were sooooooo good – everyone was talking about them.  The bride and groom loved them and they looked fabulous in the boxes.  Thanks for a job well done!  J  Tracy Marini, Eventfully Yours  –  January 2006

Everyone enjoyed the chocolate spoons we used for my daughter’s shower, for some it was their first time they have seen chocolate spoons.  I even had a few extra and promised to share with some of the folks at BASS so they can get hooked just like me.  I look forward to doing business with you in the future.  Margaret F.  –  January 2006

Jill: I was thrilled with everything last night…your service, your knowledge, your product, etc.  I hope I will have the occasion to use you again very soon.  All my friends have been calling to say what a wonderful time they had.  Thank you for making our night special!  Please don’t hesitate to use me as a reference should the need arise!  Paula V.  December 2005

I cannot tell you how amazing the cherries turned out!  Everyone said they tasted even better than they looked (I haven’t eaten mine yet!)  Again – great job!  Tracy loved you, so I know she will be using you again!!!!  Nicki   December 2005

Just wanted to let you know that the chocolate covered cherries were a hit for Nicki and Larry’s wedding this past weekend!  My assistant was so happy there were extras because they are her favorite!  Thanks and I hope to be working with you again soon!  Tracy Marini, Eventfully Yours

Thank you so much for all you did that night.  You were awesome.  I know that was a lot of work with all the fruit.  Everyone loved the fountain so much.  Thank you again and I will be recommending you to lots of people.  Becca  –  November 2005

All of our family and friends just loved the chocolate covered strawberries you did for my wedding.  We had so many compliments about them!  I had the opportunity to try one and they were just delightful!  Cindy R.  –  August 2005

The chocolate fountain was the highlight of the evening.  I received lots of compliments and requests for your services.  My hostesses commented that you and your assistant were punctual, courteous, and conducted yourselves in a very professional manner.  I was delighted to see the both of you.  The chocolate fountain contributed to my wedding being a success.  You were a life savior when considering the fact that I had been disappointed by another vendor.  You will always be remembered as an instrumental factor that was talked about the most at the wedding and at my place of employment.

Keep up the good work and your business will be very prosperous.  Ann M.  –  August 2005
