For as long as I can remember, it has always been a fantasy to visit a real chocolate factory. My expectations of course were hyped up by films such as Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.
At Cadbury’s visitor centre, for only $5, you get to smell plenty of cocoa beans and watch footage of chocolate in the making. I learnt lots about the company’s history and the world’s chocolate eating habits and even get to shop at the factory outlet for discounted chocs! But we weren’t allowed past the gates, into the real factory… boohoo!
According to ABC Hobart, the chocolate floor tours had stopped in April. Damn, I missed out by a few months!
