On Friday November 6th Spoon UVM had our Spoon Senses event, and it kicked ass. In order to celebrate we tabled in our student center and handed out free hot chocolate in order to promote our site.
We offered toppings for those who joined our email list and got over 50 emails. We offered home-made caramel, Nutella, whipped cream, mini-marshmallows, and graham crackers. Once people made their hot chocolate they were free to decorate it in whichever way they chose. My personal favorite was a cup with a scoop of Nutella, some mini- marshmallows, doused in whipped cream, and a tiny drop of sprinkles. Yum.
We definitely got lucky. Our event happened to fall on the same Friday as the last day to buy ski passes, so there was a lot of foot traffic. Throw in a sudden rainstorm and we had a lot of people suddenly walking through the student center, cold and craving some sweet hot chocolate.
Our Spoon Senses event was a great success and a ton of fun.
