Chocolate Kingdom offers a 45 minute tour of a chocolate factory. It is a small enterprise that makes handmade chocolates that are sold in the lobby of the factory. The tour is pretty basic but entertaining. First you watch a film, and then enter a room where you learn about the history of chocolate. You taste a cocoa bean coated in sugar, which is delicious. Then you taste the drink that the Mayan king used to drink, a sort of hot cocoa with a strange spice- interesting! Little cartoon clips are shown in each part of the tour to keep kids engaged. The next room has three catapults where you launch marshmallows into the mouth of a dragon. After, you eat a chocolate-covered marshmallow. The next room is where the chocolates are made and you see the old-fashioned equipment that does the work. Ladies in the room hand-coat the chocolates while you watch. You taste a raw cocoa bean, as well as some liquid cocoa that is very bitter. Next, the tour guide describes the three types of chocolate: white, milk, and dark, and you get a sample of each. And that concludes the tour! There were about seven people in our tour group.
