Our tour guide Nick was young but very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his subject. We went back to the very beginning of chocolate being discovered by the Aztecs and were offered tasters all along the way, from the 'chocolate water' that would have been drunk in ancient times to 100% unsweetened cocoa nibs and a lesson on how to smell, hear and taste good chocolate. A history of how it was developed by Quaker families wanting to offer a temperance drink to how it became the sweets we know and love today. After the main tour we got a chance to make and decorate chocolate lollies and a demonstration of filled chocolate making with more tasters. Very well done and a must for those who love their chocolate - not just for the kids as some of the tasters offered were too bitter for some tastes.
