Enveloped by the sweet aroma of cocoa from the moment they enter, guests embark on a mission into the heart of dessert during this interactive factory tour. After viewing an optional video on the history of chocolate, they make their way through the facility. Samples of many delectable treats dot their path, inviting guests to plunge dippables into a tiered chocolate fountain or taste various chocolates from select regions of the world. Visitors also try their hand at chocolate work, decorating a chocolate bar or coating candies in chocolate by dipping them in some of the factory’s machines. Since chocolate-making is thirsty work, the staff supplies freshly-made hot chocolate along the tour. Groupon purchases also receive a 10% discount off 70 individually crafted chocolate selections the evening of the tour in the retail shop.
