These exciting new treats, which were all created using Hoffman’s gourmet chocolates and confections, were chosen through a friendly internal competition among Hoffman’s Chocolates employees. On May 18th, managers and employees from Hoffman’s Chocolates’ nine Broward and Palm Beach County locations presented original ice cream sundae and milkshake creations to a panel of celebrity judges which included Paul Castronova, South Florida’s most famous radio personality hosting the Paul and Young Ron Show every morning on Big 105.9 and President of Castronovo Vineyards; Jarett Levan, CEO of BBX Capital, parent company of Hoffman’s Chocolates; Kathleen Cannon, President/CEO of United Way of Broward County; Laurie George, CEO of United Way of Palm Beach County; and Allen Susser, Renowned Chef and Owner of Chef Allen’s Consulting. After tasting all of the mouthwatering treats, the panel chose the sundaes and milkshakes that will be featured in the summer promotion.
“We are so excited to introduce Hoffman’s Chocolates’ ‘Stay Cool & Celebrate Summer’ promotion and share it with our community,” commented Lois Marino, Director of Marketing at Hoffman’s Chocolates. “Our team worked hard and had a great time creating amazing ice cream sundaes and milkshakes that I’m sure everyone will love. We were also so privileged to have had a wonderful team of judges help us make this promotion possible.”
As part of its ongoing efforts to celebrate and make life sweeter for children and families in the community, Hoffman’s Chocolates will be donating ten percent of all ice cream sundae and milkshake sales during the promotion to United Way of Broward County’s ReadingPals Program and United Way of Palm Beach County’s, partner, Literacy Coalition. In addition, all guests are invited to visit any Hoffman’s Chocolates location to share how they “Stay Cool & Celebrate” by taking photos of themselves enjoying any Hoffman’s Chocolates treat and sharing via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #CelebrateWithHoffmans. One photo will be selected randomly, and the winner will receive FREE chocolate for a year!
“We are so thrilled to partner with United Way of Broward County and United Way of Palm Beach County to help support literacy programs that are so important to our community,” added Marino.
