The Chocolate Challenge is a series of chocolate team building events that were originally created for Verizon when they were meeting at the Hotel Hershey in Hershey PA and has since been used by hundreds of organizations including Godiva to build morale among co-workers, increase communication and innovation, and strengthen working relationships. This is a super fun way to energize a sales conference or retreat, or to simply reward your group for a job well done. The benefits in productivity will last long after the last chocolate has vanished!
As with all our team building events, these chocolate team building activities are highly customizable. Your team’s chocolate team building event might include tasty morsels like:
Full Contact Chocolate Bingo
Everyone is given a Bingo card with chocolate experiences such as “has eaten the ears off a chocolate bunny first” and “has eaten cereal with chocolate milk” on a grid. Find others who fit these descriptions, and get Bingo before your coworkers do! This is a perfect ice breaker to get people mingling and most importantly, meeting co-workers.
It’s time to treat your sweet tooth and test your taste buds with our unique CSI “Chocolate Taste Test” competition. Each group gets to taste ten different types of familiar childhood favorites – can you guess what they are without looking at them? Whose taste buds will reign supreme? That’s not all. In our “Chocolate Sight Investigation” (CSI) we’ve dissected chocolate bars. Can you correctly sleuth out what kind it is?
You’ve got chocolate and you’ve got the brains, creativity and project management skills… now it’s time to put your skills to the test and see how high you can build a freestanding chocolate tower.
A Bridge Over Chocolate Waters
Willy Wonka has retired and Charlie’s factory is in big trouble. Charlie knows he has the most popular and powerful chocolate factory in the world, but he needs your help to get his chocolate to market. Enter a world of pure imagination as you design, build and pitch a scrumdiddlyumptious bridge made of chocolate that will transport the latest Wonka candy sensation!
In this team building activity, the emphasis can either be competitive (just for fun) or collaborative (big picture thinking) depending on your group’s goals. As with all TeamBonding programs, there’s lots of room for customization.
