Just wondering if chocolate fountains are passed their expiration date.
I still see them at weddings, casino buffets, large home parties, fundraising events and I'd take a chocolate fondue pot over a chocolate fountain any day.
I've recently read people referring to them as germ transfer systems.
I'm not one to get squicked out by germ-y things, but chocolate fountains are revolting. Anytime I see them, I avoid them. Jay F has it right- they're germ transfer systems.
Also not a fan!
You've confirmed my fears!
Jay F would rather have the dog lick his plate than eat from a chocolate fountain.
(He is sick with the flu this week, so he's writing in the third person.)
Aren't they only germy if people "double dip?"
I don't know. I've never eaten from one.
Or is he/you doing a jfood imitation? Not allowed.
Wow... jfood! I miss him.
Miss him too. Hope jfood is well and I'm missing Sam F (RIP) too. They were so witty & warm and had such great ideas. They really were the ultimate hounds.
I understand he's a contributor to a Connecticut based food site. Sam's living magically 'up there' :) and cooking up a storm.
Well said. He definitely is. :)
I'm just so sick, I was delirious when I wrote that. What does the "j" stand for in jfood?
Long revered CH who no longer posts.
I got a warning once for addressing my "reverence"
Yes. Not only the germ issue, but I've seen too many where the chocolate gets clumped/jammed and doesn't flow properly.
Why not just have an assortment of fruit dipped in chocolate.
Yes, and seeing a chocolate fountain clogged with bits of fruit and angel cake crumbs is not very appetizing. Plus, all the ones I have seen used poor quality chocolate. Who wants to eat that?
