On Thursday, March 20, Marquette University Student Government will present the sweetest night of the year – Night of Chocolate – at 7 p.m. in the AMU Ballrooms.
Join MUSG in “Tour de Chocolate” and allow your taste buds to explore delectable treats from around the world. The trip begins in Belgium. With a history of chocolate beginning in 1635, Belgium is home to over 2,000 chocolatiers. Of course, nothing pairs with chocolate better than a golden Belgium waffle.
After stamping their passport in Belgium, attendees will trek over to France. A well kept secret, France’s sensuous, sweet and surprising chocolate is the product of the country’s renowned decadence; and the French crepe pairs perfectly with a dollop of the delicious treat.
The next stop on the tour is Switzerland. Famed internationally as the world’s prominent chocolatiers, the Swiss take their reputation seriously. Each hand-crafted truffle and confection begins with natural ingredients, including cacao beans and sugar cane, which are combined and poured slowly into unique molds, creating a chocolate that looks as good as it tastes.
“Tour de Chocolate” ends in America, where chocolate has become its own industry. From Hershey to Nestle to Dove, Americans have taken the world’s obsession over chocolate to a new level. A stop in America for chocolate yields variety and will often be sealed with a Kiss, a Hershey’s Kiss of course.
Round-trip tickets for this delicious adventure will go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 26 in the Brooks Lounge. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased with cash or Marquette cash.
