Nice family owned facility- how can you not like tasting of a flight of chocolates? They did a good job of describing the process and different ingredients for the chocolates. Even told us chocolate is healthy; dark with >70% cocoa is required; and yummy.

It was such fun learning the history of chocolate and how it's made, both commercially mass produced and as an artisan offering. The samples were tasty and the tour of the actual facility was fun and interesting. Wanted to buy everything in the store when we finished.

The tour guide was friendly, funny and sooo knowledgeable. We had a great time. The chocolate is so good. We enjoyed being able to taste it and that made our decision on what to buy. We also purchased some gelato and that was excellent! My husband is guarding the chocolate, not sharing with anyone. I told him that is OK because I will order on line!

We mainly did this tour because the kids wanted to. It was a bit disappointing that you had to pay for the tour and then they expected you to purchase their products. I would have been more likely to purchase had I not paid for the tour. The kids loved it! We learned some interesting information about he process of making chocolate starting from the cacao plant. We also sampled chocolates on the tour. I do like that this is a small, local operation.
