Thank you so much Alan for the photo and for a great experience on Tuesday!! I have received numerous comments from the attendees saying it was such an enjoyable afternoon. And it really was! You were very welcoming and informative in a friendly but professional manner and very well organized. I see why people want to come back for another visit. And thank you, again, for the luncheon at a discount, it worked out so well! I know that Jacques wanted to supply a basket for our March 7 event just a few days before that date but our chairperson would really appreciate receiving it within the next week if possible. I assume it would not contain anything perishable and we promise to keep it refrigerated if needed until our event if necessary. Would you be able to ask him if this is possible? I am happy to come and pick it up whenever convenient between not and say the middle of next week. My cell number, if needed, is 609-458-0175. I will be recommending your 'chocolate museum experience' to everyone! And everything was so delicious (including the bars I bought that day and have already sampled!

Alan, Hello! I just had to thank you again for the wonderful field trip you hosted yesterday! I sent in the survey, which I'm sure you'll see, but I wanted to officially thank you for our tour. It was educational, and fun, and delicious, and easy to arrange, all because of you. From the start of planning to the last tantalizing chocolate chip, it was truly one of the best trips we've taken in nearly a decade of homeschooling. And thank you as well for your generous gift of the Michel Cluizel book! I love to read, and chocolate is, by far, my favorite food (my family knows my motto -- if it's not chocolate, it's not dessert!), so it would be an ideal souvenir regardless. However, when I got home and started paging through, I also saw how engaging and educational it is -- also some of my favorite things. I can't wait to read it with my daughter, and as we do, we'll be remembering your kindness, and all we learned and tasted during our visit. :) I've posted information about the tour to two local homeschool email lists, so I hope you get some more homeschoolers at the museum soon. Merci beaucoup! :) Best,
– Lisa

Merci Alan for the picture. The presentation was great and we had a wonderful time. My students appreciated the experience and we look forward to our next visit. I'm definitely coming back with a group of my friends and colleagues soon. Would dinner be an option? Merci,

Dear Alan, You beat me to it. I wanted to write you first to tell you what a wonderful time all of us had today. We always have fun but I think we'll be talking about our day at the Cluizel Chocolatrium for a long time. Of course your charm was largely responsible for our enjoyment. Everything we tasted was so delicious that we are all looking for retail outlets for Cluizel products. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say, "Thank you for a lovely day." Sincerely,
– Inez Recupido
P.S. The picture is great, too.

Dear Alan, Thank you so much for the picture, the ladies are delighted with the photo. We all thoroughly enjoyed the Chocolatrium tour and your enlightening details of the cocoa process and the background of the company. According to our local paper, you will be at the Porch Club in Riverton so possibly some of our members who missed our tour will attend and check out what they missed. Regards,

Dear Alan, Thank you so very much for a delightful and professional tour of Michel Cluizel Chocolatrium--- we Hill residents thought it was THE BEST trip this year!! We thoroughly enjoyed your history of chocolate making, the process of beans to bars, and the delicious lunch with pastry and chocolate tasting!! The strong, good values established Mr. Cluizel are a delight to see in today’s “crazy” society…and we are so happy that we shared the day together. Bill, Amy & I look forward to visiting the Damville facility next time we visit with our French cousins in Normandy! Again, our many thanks for such a special presentation--- fondly, the Lutzes…& all the Hill residents

Alan, Thank you so much for a very lovely afternoon. I think everyone enjoyed the education and the tastings! I know the woman sitting next to me is coming back. She was taking copious notes since she was a food taster or something in the field, in a previous life's adventure. And I'll have to see if the chocolate recommendation is helping Cassandra to sleep. Thank you also for the picture! Now on another subject, the two women that showed up, were originally scheduled for the June 26 the trip. Not sure where the confusion occurred. But I wanted to see if since we already paid for the both of them if you might be able to extend a gift certificate of sorts for them to come back on another date. Just let me know if you might be able to do anything for them. Thanks again! Had a really wonderful time and a lovely afternoon chocolate buzz.

Dear Allan, Thank you so much for your kind words and for giving us such an enjoyable and informative tour of Michel Cluizel last week. I have received such positive feedback from all of the girls and parents who attended - we learned so much about cocoa and the chocolate making process. And we all agreed that it was the best chocolate we ever tasted! Thank you again for your help and support! Regards, Diane Pantano Leader, Cadette Troop #22323
P.S. - we hope to come back this summer at a convenient time to see the factory operations!

Cher M. Green, Yesterday was absolutely fabulous. We sent a picture to Gino who tweeted out the event. Please look for a large envelope that should arrive by Friday. Each student wrote a personal thank you. They are divided between yourself and Jacques. The students were still on cloud nine today. They loved every part of the experience that you offered them. Thank you so much, We are already looking forward to next year!!! Merci, A la prochaine fois, French and Spanish Teacher, Haddonfield High School Haddonfield Middle School,

Alan, Thank you! We had a wonderful time and can not thank you enough for the fantastic tour and absolutely delicious chocolates and pastries as well as the lunch. I have received incrediably positive feedback from the students. I did a follow up lesson today and those who did not attend the field trip were very jealous. We will definitely be back next year and I hope to include the Spanish classes at West as well!

Alan, I want to thank you and Jacques for such an enjoyable--and delicious--lunch/tour yesterday. Kevin loved it, as did the rest of our family. What a wonderful way to celebrate his first 50 years! Your warmth, knowledge and hospitality made it a very memorable event. We're looking forward to tasting the various chocolates we brought home. I'm sure we'll be back for more! Cheers,

Hi Alan. Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon and your charming attitude to a group of ladies that were so impressed with all of your knowledge and kindness in sharing it with them.
