Celebrate chocolate through history, with tastings, and hands-on activities. Come experience the rich story of chocolate starting from a tree: learn how it grows and how cacao seeds are processed to become lusciously smooth chocolate. Sample diverse chocolates as you travel through their place in history, and honor the Mexican Day of the Dead custom by grinding chocolate nibs on a traditional Mexican metate and decorating a chocolate skull. You will taste the exotic chocolate from Modica, Sicily, sample award winning white chocolate from Venezuela and smell the aromas of chocolate as it is processed through a modern conching machine and more. Tickets are $10 per Family group and are purchased at the door. Paid parking adjacent to building.
