We started by watching the classic "Job Switching" episode of I Love Lucy, in which Lucy and Ethel get jobs at a candy factory. Even people who had never heard of Lucille Ball were laughing at her antics! Everyone had a chance to guess how much chocolate was in the jar and complete their chocolate trivia while watching. Then, we played chocolate bingo, with M&Ms for markers and white-fudge-covered Oreos as prizes. After that, we watched the Monty Python sketch "Trade Decription Act," a.k.a. "Crunchy Frog," then played a guessing game with a box of chocolates. We watched the opening of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory (new version) while decorating cupcakes, then rated four kinds of milk chocolate. The Lindt milk chocolate was the favorite by far, which was no surprise. That stuff is amazing!
Arig and Christelle excelled at chocolate trivia, getting 12 of 15 correct. Close behind them were Perry, Jared, and Nitha with 11 correct answers each. They all got chocolate bars for their knowledge! The chocolate guessing jar proved to be a bit more tricky. Most of the answers were way too low or high. The actual number was 618, and Maria was the only person who was even close. Her guess was great, though: 575.
I hope everyone enjoyed Chocolate Night! Thanks to the Delaware County Office of Behavioral Health for their assistance in supporting all of our recent First Friday programs!!
