Purpose of my visit: Visiting attractions with out-of town family.
A tour that offers product samples is great but a chocolate tour with samples and being able to create your own candy bar.....awesome! This type of adventure is great for a group looking for an activity that will entertain everyone.... This is why we decided to go to the Chocolate Kingdom with our family who came in from Denver.
The tour was interesting and everyone felt they learned something new. The group also enjoyed sampling milk, dark and white chocolate along the way. Most of the group decided to make their own chocolate bar. You don't actually get to make it, you get to determine the type of chocolate and type of fruit, nuts and candy you would like in it. Then, watch as the chocolatier creates your bar! The cost is only $5 which we all felt was reasonable because the chocolate is very tasty here and the bars had some good weight to them.
Before and after the tour, guests are able to make purchases at the gift store. There are packaged items like chocolate wine, chocolate bars, sugar free chocolates, etc. There is also a display case with a large assortment of treats. My son opted for the chocolate syringe and some fresh hot cocoa. Yes, I typed that right! A large syringe with fresh melted chocolate inside! We have actually been back to the Chocolate Kingdom to purchase more chocolate and another chocolate syringe.
This tour is great for most ages. They offer folding chairs if you feel that you may need to sit down once in a while during the tour. If you have small children, please note that some parts of the tour can be a bit slow and learning about the history of chocolate may not be as fun as tasting it. The tour does follow along the animated story and that can help with an antsy child.
Be sure to check their website www.chocolatekingdom.com for information on events and party packages. The wine and chocolate pairing experience sounds fabulous!
