All About Factory Tours at Fanny May Chocolates
Note: I didn't include any pictures of the inside of the factory because we weren't allowed to use cameras during most of the tour. You'll just have to make a trip and tour the facility on your own to see the inside. 🙂
The tour starts with a short video and a walk-through timeline of the history of Harry London/Fanny May Chocolates.
Then we got to see the factory. Inside the factory, we saw huge vats of chocolate and chocolate candies moving down the production line to be wrapped and boxed.
The kids enjoyed watching everything taking place and were amazed at the process. They even got to wave at the workers through the glass windows.
The highlight of the tour was the samples at the end. We enjoyed dark chocolate-covered cherries, milk chocolate-covered buttercream, and white chocolate-covered caramel. Yum!
After the samples, we headed to the store to sample the gelato and peruse the wide variety of chocolate they have for sale.
Overall, it was a great experience and we enjoyed watching them make the chocolate almost as much as we enjoyed eating it!
