cklogoThe next time you head to Florida, be sure to check out the Chocolate Kingdom!  This hidden treasure, right next to Old Town Kissimmee, will teach you everything you need to know about chocolate and it’s rich history.  Their 45 minute tour will take you through the entire process from the beans on the cacao tree all the way to their melt-in-your-mouth chocolate bar.   There is so much more to the chocolate that we eat on a daily basis than mixing cocoa, sugar and milk!  The Chocolate Kingdom is great for kids and adults.  The kids will love the cartoon characters that interact with the tour guide while mom and dad will learn everything they could possibly could about chocolate!

After 45 minutes of drooling over the chocolate river, trying to take a bite of the chocolate castle and smelling the richness of the cocoa bean, you can fulfill your craving by making your very own customized chocolate bar!  For $5 you can choose between dark, white or milk chocolate and add up to three ingredients.  They have traditional (nuts, marshmallows, M & Ms) as well as off-the-wall (bacon, chili pepper) choices!

I think I could have just posted the pictures I took here and everyone would want to come to the Chocolate Kingdom! There was so much more to this tour than eating chocolate! I knew chocolate came from cocoa beans, but I had no idea what the process was like. I will never forget the things I learned about chocolate and how it is made. The tour guide along with the visual displays really helped me understand what a complicated process it is just to make one bar of chocolate! We started off watching a cartoon that explained a little bit about the history of chocolate and we met a handsome prince and his dragon. Then we started on our journey to help them create the perfect pair of chocolate shoes! Along the way we were able to try cocoa beans, a super rich chocolate drink, the inside of a cocoa bean, and finally the finished product! The chocolate was absolutely delicious! We tried a piece of white, milk and dark. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the dark chocolate! Normally I only like milk variety, but I’m guessing since the quality was much better than your typical chocolate bar, it had a completely different flavor. When the tour is over, you are able to create your very own chocolate bar for a small fee. You can add up to three ingredients and watch them make it! Then it is hung up on a track and delivered to the store in front when it’s finished! The Chocolate Kingdom tour was fascinating, informative, and I can’t wait to take my kiddos!

  • Sounds like a great place – but nothing like the Hershey our in Pennsylvania that our parents took us on when we were kids!

  • This place seems very informational as well as fun! I would love to really know the details of how cocoa is made into our everyday chocolate and I’m glad that there’s a place that I can actually learn that visually! I’m not a big fan of dark chocolate, but now that I’ve read your review, perhaps it’s because I’ve never had really good dark chocolate! I’ll have to keep this place in mind for the next time I head to Florida! Thanks for the review!

  • Looks so great!
    Next time in Florida I’ll surely check, and take the kids.
    There are lots of yummi things in their FB, like chocolate statues like the Oscar’s one and chocolate covered strawberries.

  • I’ve never heard of this place and I live in Florida. However, it does sound really interesting to learn the history and get a chance to create my own chocolate bar. I’ve got to check this place out. Thanks.

  • oh my goodness that looks so delicious. I wish I lived closer to Florida, but I am in New Jersey and it would take me a little time how to get there and I probably would have no chocolate left by the time I got home because I would have you eaten it all!
