Chocolate

The tour was fun, the best part was buying chocolate at the end. It is a good way to spend an hour in South Bend.

The Shop was very colorful and the candy is excellent, but the tour left something to be desired. Granted, it was the free 20-minute tour, but the guide was not the best. She talked too fast and is was often impossible to hear her. Brite, cheery and obviously knowledgeable, but not really effective. We've been on many tours but this... More

This was a surprise. The location is an old factory in an industrial area, both need updates. The location faded as a problem once the employees engaged. The tour was great, due again to the employee team leader, it was educational and entertaining. One more thing, the chocolate was great in all of its forms, colors and shapes.

As always the visit was very good and the young man who did the tour was exceptional. This group was a Navy Reunion Group and they loved the tour and of course the chocolate.

We enjoyed our tour of the chocolate factory. It was fun to see the chocolate being made into candies. The tour guide was fun and informative. We got a few free samples. The candy for sale in the gift shop was way overpriced, but it was definitely worth the stop.

We took the full tour which only costs$4. You get free samples, tour of their museum, baking, and packaging areas of the factory. We purchased the pumpkin pretzels, lemon pretzels and peanut butter chocolate bars. So good!

We visited this place first thing Monday morning because closed on Sunday. We did the 45 minute tour with young children and were not sure it would keep their attention. It was an amazing tour, samples, making your own candy, watching Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie and 10 discount on purchases. Everyone had a fun time!

We took the $4.00 Inside Scoop tour. It was a week day so the factory was operating. The guide was very pleasant and knowledgable. The tour is interesting for children, however if you've seen chocolate made on TV it's just ok. At the end we got to make a spoon dipped in chocolate. During the tour, we received only one... More

This is a cool tour to find out more about chocolate making. you get history and a chance to dip chocolate spoon. They make great chocolates and the chocolate covered cherries are suburb. The popcorn mixes are great too. I love the dark chocoates, too.
