We were able to watch a live demo of the actual hands on process of making their delectable chocolates!
We saw this chocolate maker creating Haystacks with her bare hands.
And even though we were looking really hard, we didn't see any of these...
Maybe they were on strike or something...???
FINALLY! Time to shop!!! Or drool...
I'll take one of EACH please...
So good it's simply sinful...

What can I say? Chocolate makes me
crazy, silly, go wild, HAPPY!
As part of the tour we also got to watch the classic I LOVE LUCY clip of the Big Dipper episode. It doesn't matter how many times you have seen it, it still makes you almost wet your pants! If you want to challenge your bladder today, then click and watch away! You will have to turn down the sound on my music playlist first. Scroll down to the bottom of the blog (purple)...click on the far left button to pause it.
This is a great video clip (a little long but worth it!) of the History of Chocolate that we also got to watch while there. If you are interested at all in chocolate (in any form), you will find this very educational. So in the name of education...go grab some chocolate and enjoy the video. Afterall if you are going to be a consumer of chocolate you should know a little something about it's history and in order to really understand it you need to make sure the quality of it (in general) is still at least adequate. And we all know there is no better way to do that than actually eating it.
