What is Chocolate Fountain
United States Chocolate fountain is a device for serving chocolate fondue. There are different sizes, types and designs, however, the chocolate fountains are usually 2 to 4 feet tall, resembling a stepped cone with multiple tiers over heated basin which keeps the chocolate in a liquid state. Keeping chocolate in a liquid state is essential for carrying the chocolate from the bowl to the top of the fountain by a central corkscrew auger, creating a flowing curtain of chocolate.
The idea of chocolate “rivers” and “waterfalls” which can be found in Roald Dahl’s famous children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was implemented by a Canadian company Design & Realisation in the 1990’s. However, the first chocolate fountains were exclusively commercial, while the popularity was initially relatively low.
