Instead of a "beer tasting" at the Oktoberfest: How about a chocolate tasting?Ok, the title may not have been chosen ideally. It would probably be more appropriate "in addition to a "beer tasting" at the Oktoberfest".

Because in addition to beer, chocolate is also one of the most popular delicacies in Germany.

Company outing in Munich: off to chocolate paradiseAchocolate tasting with us at Theyo has numerous advantages for companies in Munich planning a group event. First of all, the size of the group is completely irrelevant. A chocolate tasting is just as fun in a small group as it is in larger teams. We have also already carried out numerous tastings completely online or hybrid, i.e. with some participants connected online. This makes it easier for employees who work from home and do not live in Munich or the surrounding area to take part in the team building measure.
What speaks for a chocolate tasting as a company event in Munich?Tastings as team building measures are certainly not a new idea in the megacity of Munich. There are now numerous team event offers for tastings of all kinds: the classic wine tasting, whiskey or espresso tasting or - especially in the German beer capital - beer tastings come to mind. However, very few have experienced a chocolate tasting. In addition to the novelty factor of chocolate tastings, another advantage is that such a team building measure does not exclude anyone who does not drink alcohol or caffeine for personal reasons. As part of our tastings, you can also get to know chocolate from a whole new perspective. Because even if chocolate is a kind of "basic food" for most people that should not be missing in any pantry, most people know little about the path of cocoa and the production of fine chocolate. We bring you closer to the special features of fine chocolate and show you how changeable our favorite treat can be in terms of taste and aroma.
High flexibility and fun factor guaranteed: A chocolate tasting as a team building event in Munich
Have we piqued your interest. Here is some information about the process of aTheyo chocolate tasting : In our tastings we try between 3 and 5 fine, fair trade chocolates from sustainable cocoa cultivation. A pairing with wine or beer is also possible. Meanwhile, we will give you exciting insights into the world of cocoa, the special features of the cultivation of fine flavor cocoa and why we prefer the bean-to-bar principle when it comes to sustainability. Such a chocolate tasting is possible both online and analogue. In Persona, the tasting is particularly useful for small groups, because everyone gets a chance to have their say and the inhibition threshold is usually lower. For larger groups of 40 people or more, it makes sense to have the event take place online because the chat function takes many people's shyness away and gives us a better overview. In principle, however, both are absolutely feasible, regardless of the group size. If the event is to take place "in real life", i.e. analogously, we will be happy to come to your office or the respective location, with lots of delicious chocolate in our luggage. If the tasting takes place entirely or partly online, we will send the package with the delicacies to be tasted to the home of the online participants beforehand.
