What is a Chocolate Fountain?

Now, most of you already know the answer and may have even used one. But for those of you who don't know: A chocolate fountain is a stainless steel 2 or 3 (or more) tiered fountain that melts chocolate and produces a continuous flow of chocolate film over the tiers. At a party, there is a variety of "dippers" which are used to dip into the chocolate film, cover your item with the desired amount of chocolate and eat it without guilt. That last part is important :]

Why are Chocolate Fountains Becoming so Popular?

Baby shower chocolate fountains are becoming popular because it is a novel and interactive experience. There is just something fascinating about dipping food into a waterfall of melted chocolate. Plus, everything tastes better with chocolate! Right?
