Over the weekend, the North Canton Chamber put on their annual Chocolate Walk on Main Street in North Canton. This is such a fun community event to support all the local businesses in the area! The chamber sells 250 tickets each year for participants, and each participating business is to pass out chocolate! It seems like trick-or-treat for adults! Businesses can pass out anything made with chocolate, cocoa powder, white chocolate, chocolate flavoring, or in the shape of chocolate!
This was our third year participating in this event. Due to Covid restrictions, it was a little different with many of the participating businesses setting up outside under canopy tents. It was actually pretty fun and relaxing because it was such a nice day outside! All the participants did a great job in social distancing and wearing face masks as they came up to the businesses as well, so the whole event felt very safe.
This year, our office decided to support another local business whose locations are not on Main Street to help get their name out in the community even more. We teamed with Nom Nom Popcorn and passed out the "trifecta" of chocolate, with options of white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate flavored popcorn! Overall, the event went very well and we received a lot of positive feedback!
As a reminder, anyone with braces should only eat popcorn that is fully popped. It is also a great idea to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth after eating the popcorn in order to promote proper dental hygiene! :) We had a great time at this event and look forward to participating in the future!
