Feeling of Chocolate!

Re: Fun, Educational, and Delicious Chocolate Classes

Dear Chocolate Lover,

the feeling of chocolateHow do you feel when you are eating chocolate?  What if you could feel that way all the time?

Of course in reality you wouldn't be able to eat chocolate all the time without it losing some of its appeal.  It's those moments when chocolate breaks through in your life that gives it that special feeling brought on by that taste you love.

At Chocolate University Online we strive to give you the feeling of chocolate all the time. As a student, your mind will be focused on chocolate more than ever before.  You will have more chocolate moments, and more enjoyment in those moments, as you gain insight into your favorite food.

This is a comment from a student of the online classes...

Chocolate University lessons are the best. Not only am I learning interesting and helpful information but the chocolate labs & weekly assignments are delicious!  P.S. They're really lots of fun too.

- Sue from Yuma, Arizona

The key to understanding the nuances and complex flavors and aromas of great chocolate is simple - training and tasting - guided by an expert in the field.

Most people just continue eating chocolate instead of ever really tasting it, never realizing why they like the flavor, never gaining true understanding.  But you can have it differently.

If you are ready to embrace the total chocolate experience then...

You're really going to love this...

Chocolate Classes from
Chocolate University Online!

At Chocolate University Online I will personally teach you all about chocolate.  This program will help you...

 Discover the depths of milk and dark chocolate flavors
 Learn what great chocolates to have on hand to share
 Impress your family and friends with your chocolate knowledge
 Become the "chocolate snob" you've always wanted to be :)
 Get that great chocolate feeling every day!

I've done all the work, so you can simply enjoy!

In this step-by-step complete course you will learn exactly how to taste chocolate, increasing the wonderful flavor experience, developing your own deep understanding--(completely from square one, no prior experience necessary)--from a Master of Chocolate...

Let's see if this is the right chocolate class for you?

Since you have already read this far, the answer is probably yes.  But let's take a quick look at some specific situations.  I would really love to have you in class if this is the right class for you.

Are you a chocolate lover
who simply wants to learn more about chocolate?  If so, then this class is perfect for you.  Likewise, if you consider yourself a chocoholic, then you're welcome to join us.  You'll take that chocolate addiction to the next level!

Are you interested in a well-rounded chocolate education covering chocolate tastings, to chocolate history, to pairing chocolate with other food and drinks?  If so, you'll really love our classes.

Are you already a professional in the chocolate industry, but you need to learn some of the basics about chocolate?  If so, this class might be OK for you, but you might want to consider the chocolate professional class which works at a faster pace and includes personal coaching.

Is your primary desire to learn to make chocolate candies for sale?  If so, this is probably not the best class for you.  While I teach some of the fundamentals of chocolate candy making, this is not a chocolatier school.  Of course rounding out your chocolate education with what we teach might be good for your business.  And my separate chocolate coaching programs can help support you with troubleshooting.

Are you simply interested in trying something fun and different with the flexibility of choosing your own timing and schedule with the convenience of participating from home?  Well, join us, because even if you are not a chocolate lover yet, you will be soon!

So who am I to teach you about chocolate?

Here's part of the group after a seminar I led at ADM Cocoa in Milwaukee
Seminar conclusion at ADM Cocoa's Milwaukee facility.

We just finished a chocolate seminar that I led at ADM Cocoa in Mansfield
I presented a "standards of identity" seminar at ADM in Mansfield, MA.

Here I am at a baking class.  It's more than just chocolate.
Chocolate applications go beyond candies. Here I'm at a baking class.
In college, my studies made me a scientist and a teacher.  I became a licensed biology teacher.  I taught in high schools for a couple years before my dream job and I came together in the same time and space.

It was my husband who actually took the phone call, from out of the blue, wondering if I'd be willing to work for Ambrosia Chocolate Company.  Duh!  That's exactly what I wanted without even knowing the position existed.

I started working at Ambrosia in a quality control job (oh yeah, lots and lots of chocolate tasting) and then I moved into research and product development.  In case you're wondering, that's even more tasting!

For nearly 10 years I had my hands in chocolate, producing formulas for such companies as Pillsbury, Nabisco, Good Humor, ConAgra, Edy's, Mrs. Fields, and Quaker Oats.

Besides making chocolate formulas, I learned to troubleshoot chocolate problems for businesses.  Sometimes over the phone, and sometimes in person, I would help resolve their chocolate and candy-making issues.  I learned a lot about what problems occur throughout the industry.

And, to expand my role, the company trained me to be a taster on their taste testing panel.  Eventually I ran taste test panels for the new products that we developed in our laboratory.

Now my passion is taking this knowledge and providing it to chocolate lovers, chocoholics, chocolate businesses, and anyone who enjoys chocolate in any form.  By doing this, I can help you can enhance your chocolate experience, whether you prefer making it or eating it.  This will boost your overall love and enjoyment of chocolate!

Here's a comment from one of my live, in-person sessions...

Your "Flavor Attributes of Chocolate" presentation was a great success! It was informative, entertaining and interactive with the audience. I certainly learned more than I ever had before about chocolate.

- William from Athens, Georgia

The "Taste and Understand Training Formula":
A Step-By-Step, Training Program!

I developed the chocolate classes at Chocolate University Online so that you can get even greater enjoyment every time you take a bite of your favorite chocolate.  You might even find a new favorite!  And you'll discover why it's your favorite.

Every week for the next 9 months (40 weeks total) you'll receive an email with a special download link for an easy-to-read step-by-step lesson that assures you'll make progress every single week.

Some weeks will also include bonus material to help you understand and learn more advanced concepts.

Don't worry, there is no requirement to participate with others, or submit answers to questions.  You are never graded.  It's all about fun with chocolate that you can do on your own time.  This is purely a self-study program.  While I send you one lesson per week, you can even let them pile up in your email if you get busy with something else.

Over the coming 9 months your Chocolate University Online lessons will help you easily discover:

How to taste and describe the flavors in chocolate
(see lessons 1 to 12)

3 key elements you need to know about chocolate and your health
(see lesson 25)
Your favorite milk and dark chocolates
(see lessons 8 and 9)
The secret to pairing chocolate and wine for a great taste experience
(see lessons 35 and 36)
How to get real chocolate to harden properly without additives or refrigeration (no one does this simple trick, but it's the secret to perfect chocolate-covered strawberries and other chocolate candies)
(see lessons 16 and 17)
What to do after you have made chocolate mistakes.  Can you recover?
(see lesson 22)
...and much, much more!

But perhaps the best thing about chocolate classes
is that you get to eat your homework!

Instead of simply publishing this information in some book that just sits on your coffee table, I'm making these lessons available to you week after week in "bite-sized" portions.

You'll also receive some "here's what you do next" action steps to improve your progress.  You won't just be book-smart, you'll have practical experience so the lessons will stay with you.

When you join Chocolate University Online you'll receive... chocolate class lessons

Forty Lessons, delivered weekly,
in downloadable .PDF format

Each lesson is strategically created in such a way that you'll see growth in your knowledge and appreciation of chocolate.

You will get my expert guidance and direction that helps you learn the right things at the right time...

Here's a Summary of What You'll Receive.
Each Chocolate Lesson...

Is Short and Easy to "Digest"...
  Most lessons are only 4-7 pages in length and contain nothing but "the good stuff."  Each lesson is purposefully brief (but thorough!) so you can read it quickly and get on to the chocolate experience.

Has a Fun Laboratory or Experiment to Complete...

  Many lessons will include an appropriate sensory evaluation (fancy word for taste testing).  Whether you complete the experiment or not is up to you.  You'll speed up your learning if you do.  And you'll enjoy more chocolate along the way!
Builds As You Go...
  Most lessons build on previous information.  Early on we discuss basics to quickly establish your expertise.  From there, we move into intermediate and then advanced topics to help you obtain legendary "chocolate guru" status!
Helps You Make Real Progress...
  You've always loved chocolate for the taste.  These lessons will transform the way you think about chocolate and the way you pursue it.  Your family and friends will place you on a chocolate pedestal.
Includes Chocolate Recipes to Impress...
  Since people know about my love of chocolate they often expect me to bring chocolate when I need a "dish to pass."  So, to round out each lesson, I will include a recipe or two.  This way you can help others enjoy your love of chocolate too!

Each chocolate class is designed to be "to the point" so you learn quickly and easily.

The first lesson is coming your way immediately upon completing your order. Included in your first class...

Lesson #1 -

  • You'll learn how milk chocolate gets its unique flavors.
  • You'll look at the ingredients of milk chocolate.
  • You'll compare colors and aromas of three different milk chocolate bars.
  • You'll taste the differences of those bars.
  • You'll get two different, easy to make, milk chocolate truffle recipes.

This lesson is yours instantly when you join.  It's your chance to start turning your love of chocolate into expertise.

Audio Chocolate LessonsIf you prefer learning while listening, we've got all of our lessons on MP3 audio too.  Get the combination and it's like sitting in a classroom with the lecture and the notes all prepared for you.

With the MP3s you can take your lessons with you where reading is not an option.  You can carry these audio lessons on your iPod or other MP3 player to listen in the car, on a hike, or in the grocery store as you're shopping for chocolate!

This is a comment from a student of the online classes...

I have been a chocolate lover for some time but it is great to learn so much about it, and how to compare different types and brands. I could not resist eating my homework. It brought a new theme of conversation at home, and between my friends!

- Richard from Bayamón, Puerto Rico

You Can Start Your Chocolate Journey
in the Next Five Minutes for Only...

By now you're probably wondering how much this is going to cost.  As you've probably guessed by now, I get paid hundreds of dollars just for a couple hours of a chocolate tasting or similar presentation.  (Need proof? Take a look at my chocolate tasting site.)

And with Chocolate University Online you're getting over 100 hours of my presentation material distilled down into 40 fun and easy lessons.  That's much more information than you'd get in a single 2-hour presentation, and a whole lot less money...

If you're lucky enough to live near a local college that offers special interest classes you might be able to find a chocolate-related class.  Even so, you'd still likely spend hundreds of dollars for a single semester, or nearly $100 for a few short sessions, and never get as comprehensive a chocolate education as you'll get here.

Over in our Chocolate Professional Class we sell chocolate lessons for $497.  That includes the lessons in PDF downloads, MP3 audio, and coaching.  Frankly, in my opinion, we offer the professional students a great price for that bundle.  (If you want to present chocolate tastings like I do, the chocolate professional class is the way to go!)

But chocolate is a passion of mine so want to share the information with a price that every chocolate lover can afford.  I want you to learn all about this wonderful food so I am making it easy for you.

I could go on and on about some high price that we cut down to some lower price, kind of like they do on those infomercials, but I'd rather get to the point.

You can join Chocolate University Online and still have money left to get yourself some great chocolate!

As a chocoholic, I crave both chocolate and my Chocolate University Online lessons.

- Jean from Waukesha, Wisconsin

So it's time for you to smile...

smile with chocolateThe price for a subscription to the Chocolate University Online program is just $14.95 per month for 9 months.  This is one sweet deal!

Also, be assured, while the program is 40 classes in length, you can cancel anytime you choose and the payments will stop.

"Bryn, that's a bargain..."

Yes it is.  $14.95 is a drop in the bucket.  That's less than $3.37 per class.  Taking you by the hand, adding to your chocolate knowledge step-by-step, and building your chocolate expertise will pay back in chocolate enjoyment for years to come.

You're getting a great deal!  And it gets even better!  You see, most people who take our classes love them.  They learn so much and have fun at the same time.

You've read this far so you're still interested.  I know you'd like the class if you decide to try it.  So, as an extra incentive I'm also giving you a start up discount, dropping the price for the first month.  It will be just $4.95.

For less than the cost of a single gourmet chocolate bar, you get an entire month of Chocolate University Online classes.  Even if you stop after one month you'll have learned a lot about milk chocolate and dark chocolate.

On top of this already great deal you can add the MP3 audio lessons.  If you look at our chocolate store, you'll see that we charge $29.95 for a set of 5 lessons on a CD, but when you add the audio MP3s to your written lesson materials we charge only $4.95 extra per month.  That's just over $1 per audio lesson.

Now, if you're thinking that this deal is too good, let me ease your mind with one more thought...

Thank you!  All my friends and relatives agreed that your "Classic Chocolate Tasting" presentation was the best time they ever had at a gathering. You have so much passion about chocolate! It meant so much to me that you were able to help make our wedding weekend extra special.
