“Great tour and chocolate!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

The tour is free and it occurs every half hour during the main part of the day for the summer... less often during later times/ winter. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable and fun and gave lots of interesting facts, explained the process and used analogies. You get to see the workers making the products through glass windows - all steps of the process! Lots of fun and very cool.
You get a sample of one of their items at the end and a discount coupon. They have SO many things you could want as far as chocolates, candies, taffy, ice cream, etc.
Expensive, of course, that's the only downside. I didn't try much, but I wasn't super impressed with the taste... definitely good but just like other decent brands.

“Felt Like Willy Wonka's Place!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

It was a nice chocolate tour. I think my daughter was bored but it was okay. The packing part made me think of the Luciell Ball episode where her and Ethel were in the candy factory and it got out of hand! LOL But the chocolate is WONDERFUL!!!!

Reviewed 30 July 2013

went with a group on the free factory tour. Interesting to see the candy making process. Our guide (david) was fun, interesting and funny. The free piece of chocolate at the end was great. This is a nice tour for adults as well as families with children. great chocolate and ice cream for sale.

“Great Chocolate!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

If you need a chocolate fix this is the place to go. It also carries gifts to share or bring home. I always purchase hostess gifts here. The Chocoale covered Carmels are delicious.

“Great chocolate, but expensive”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

We went here last year and got a lot of chocolate. It was very good but the price was a little steep. I really liked the sea salted caramels. The place is really cool to visit and watch them making the chocolate. Good spot for families with children.
