Part informative tour, part story telling adventure, and guaranteed to end in chocolate, this is a terrific way to spend an afternoon with the family or with a group of chocolate-loving friends. For $15, you get a tour of the factory (leaving hourly from 1pm to 7pm) and the chance to accompany "a handsome Prince and his Dragon sidekick" through a Cacao Tree greenhouse, the Chocolate Museum, a "Mystical River of Chocolate," and finally the "Bean-to-the-Bar" factory. Then, for an extra $5, you can create your own custom chocolate bar out of your favorite variety of chocolate (milk, dark, white) plus up to three add-ins. Plus you get samples of chocolate and even cocoa beans themselves on the regular tour.
This is a total win and a unique afternoon in the midst of tourist central. Plus custom chocolate bars!! How can you say no? And you can even get chocolate if you don't want to do the tour. The store is open from noon to 8pm daily. Stock up. But remember to get it back to your fridge quick -- it's hot in Florida.
