Do you love chocolate? If so, you have to visit these chocolate factories around the world that show the overall journey from the cacao bean to the bars that appear on supermarket shelves. You’ll even get to taste the finished product. Here are three of the world’s best chocolate factory tours.
Hershey’s Chocolate World – Hershey, Pennsylvania, United States
Located in Hershey, Pennsylvania next to Hershey Park, this factory is so much more than just a tour—it’s a mini chocolate-themed town. Some of the highlights include the shops and restaurants that feature Hershey’s chocolate, creating your very own chocolate bar, and the 3D movie featuring Hershey characters.
Maison Cailler – Broc, Switzerland
Switzerland is known as one of the best chocolate-producing countries in the world and there are a ton of chocolate factories to choose from. What makes this chocolate stand above the rest is that it only uses cow’s milk, so it’s super creamy. Maison Cailler happens to be one of the best and you can even take an art class on truffle-making while there.
Choco-Story – Bruges, Belgium
Choco-Story is more of a museum than a factory and while there you’ll learn about the 4,000-year history of chocolate and how it’s made. Don’t worry—you’ll even get to taste some.
