Visited one of the top 10 chocolate museums in the world, didn’t really get the hype though. We’ve visited chocolate factories before, but not museums. I mean, they did have an open kitchen concept with a glass window that we could look through, saw them making those chocolate balls which looked really delicious hur hur.
It was a really informational museum don’t get me wrong, but I wasn’t really interested in the history of chocolate? It was all about how eating cacao came about, makings of chocolate, utensils taken to eat chocolate and then health benefits of eating chocolate. I mean I guess they are interesting facts at some point, but it were just in boards of boards of text and it bored me so much haha. I guess that’s why it was one of the top 10 chocolate museums in the world!
There was a huge chocolate fall, a waterfall which is chocolate, which wasn’t edible because chemicals were added to preserve the chocolate. Also, a huge chocolate Spiderman on the first floor and a Batman on the second floor. Almost contemplated touching it but didn’t want to dirty my hands LOL.
I didn’t get to sample chocolates… That was kinda a bummer.
