As I mention in my bio and about me page, my husband works for a chocolate company.
He works for Mars Chocolate North America and is a line manager/line lead.
One should not take for granted having a job, let alone one they love and are proud of.
So for the next in my Happiness Is Series we have …
Happiness Is: Chocolate
I want to note that this article is not sponsored. This is just something I wanted to write about.
My husband’s career is a central part of our lives.
He takes great pride in his career and is very good at it.
There are also some perks for me too!
Having your husband bring home chocolate is always a treat.
I am lucky to be practically showered in it!
Why Chocolate Makes Me Happy
For starters, the obvious, it tastes fantastic!
Especially when you are enjoying quality chocolate like Dove!
Mars Chocolate treats their employees very well when it comes to benefits.
Being a part of a dynamic company like Mars makes my husband happy. This, in turn, makes me happy.
Chocolate can lower your health risks when eaten within reason.
Sometimes we attend chocolate Galas.
The Mars Chocolate Gala above was on behalf of our local plant opening up the Caramel M&M’s line.
It was a fun event but the highlight for me was the entrance.
We all walked through the plane which was very cool looking inside.
It was a plane like that of Elvis Presley, equipped with comfortable leather seating and a full-service bar.
We then exited onto the red carpet to be photographed.
Perhaps not our best photo, those lights were bright. I can understand how movie stars must feel. It takes a learned technique not to squint when staring into those lights!
My husband is not in this video since he does not work on the M&M’s line.
He was there when they filmed it however.
Another thing I am loving about Mars that makes me happy is their messaging.
Dove Chocolate Has Their Messenging On Point!
Dove is a Mars brand chocolate.
This is the wrapper message I received last night upon enjoying a piece:
Indeed I am and I hope you are proud of your age too!
We are also proud to be a part of the Mars Chocolate family.
Being Part Of The Mars Family:
When people hear that my husband is a line manager at a chocolate plant they often ask questions.
The main question I am asked is if I get a lot of free chocolate.
My answer is yes which is always met with a big sigh or squeal.
I do realize how lucky I am.
It is not something my husband or I take for granted and we always share.
The company hands out loads of coupons and chocolate before holidays.
Especially Halloween. We make sure to spread the love.
Some of the candy and product my husband brings home includes:
Skittles, Peanut M&Ms, Altoids, Gum, and animal treats.
Not all of these things are made at my husband’s plant.
Each plant makes different products.
I am however absolutely thrilled that my husband’s plant will be making Twix soon.
I swoon for Twix!
My husband is going to kill me and this is not his best photo but this is him at work.
He sent me a selfie one day and this was it.
My husband works long hours. Sometimes seven days a week but he loves his job.
He is very good at it too and I am proud of him.
We are both very happy to be a part of the Mars Chocolate family.
Both of us are thankful that he has a career in which he can grow.
That he belongs to a family that wants to see him build on and learn new skills.
Mars is truly a wonderful company to work with.
I hope each of you has a job that you love.
If you are looking you should find your local Mars plant and apply!
