Good Morning World!
If anyone knows me, they know that I love chocolate, I’m not talking run of the mill “oh yeah I love chocolate” I mean I REALLY love chocolate. I easily get through a sharing bar a day, and its getting to be a bit of a problem not only for my bank account but for my health too, but as much I try and resist there is a little voice inside telling me that I need it! I mean I’m currently half way through a bar now!
Last week myself and a friend took a trip to Chocolate Heaven, otherwise known as Cadbury’s world. This is the second time in my life that I have been here, and there will no doubtfully be a third and maybe a forth. Cadbury’s world is located in a town called Bourneville (hence the name of their famous dark chocolate) just outside Birmingham.
The tour started off showing us the history of the cocoa bean (whilst also giving us chocolate) and telling us about how drinking chocolate was as good as drinking alcohol back then: it was only for the wealthy. So this trip was not only enjoyable but also very educational and rewarding, making it a perfect day out. We saw so many videos including a 4D experience of how chocolate is made in Cadbury’s (whilst we ate more chocolate). I experienced so many melt in the mouth moments that my mouth is watering now as I write this.
Cadbury’s world was a perfect day out for all of the family to enjoy, and despite the childish appeal there was surprisingly little children visiting the factory, most of which were adults, which made us feel a little better about the overwhelming excitement we felt on the train ride there. The staff were very informative and made you feel right at home, it was a truly amazing day. My favourite part being the 4D experience which I could highly recommend doing.
The gift shop was also a big part of the day out as both myself and my friend bought more than we bargained for when browsing the chocolate filled room. I bought a bulk buy box of Cadbury’s dairy milk bars which had 60 inside, and a box of Curly Wurly’s containing 45. Along side a 850g chocolate bar which was as long as my arm!
I loved every second of my trip to my chocolate wonderland and I hope you enjoyed reading about it!
