The chocolate factory...

We had a very yummy afternoon checking out the chocolate factory. They make over 3,000 types of chocolates. Made to order for a price. The owner is Swiss and showed us the difference between premium chocolate and cheap chocolate. His factory is small and makes the most beautiful creations as well as the most yummy! I had to come home afterwards and workout! We enjoyed hazelnut, raspberry and amazing white chocolate made with only cocoa butter no palm oil or vegetable oil there. The process is very interesting from conching the cocoa to tempering the chocolate. Even watching the labels being folded and put on the packaging. Mostly they make high end chocolates like for the Peninsula Hotel or the Sheraton. Very fun to see the chocolates coming out of the machines!
