I thought the chocolate bean grew on bushes not on trees. Am I confused?

Hmm, no samples?
I need chocolate!

Is there a tasting room at the end of the exhibit?

VioletSky said...

there is a 'marketplace' where a couple times a day a demonstration of chocolate making is done and you get to taste that.

Hope they were giving out samples!

Such creative chocolate signs! Love how there is peeled back packaging for extra temptation! They look great!

Ebie said...

Great signs of display, can't miss them!

I just received a package of real ground beans roasted from scratch and ready for use!

I was there on Sunday! I should have gotten a shot of these signs before going in as it was sunny and bright when we went in and a blizzard when we came out! A kiosk selling hot chocolate would have been welcome.

I used to be able to drink 'hot chocolate' but not any more. I think my taste-buds 'moved'. Cannot say 'matured' because I adore chocolate blocks with hazelnuts embedded.

mmm MMM mmm

I would imagine that it will be a very well-attended exhibit. The "chocolate" on the signs looks good enough to eat!
