Indulge in Chocolate

Spring 2013

Chocolate Kingdom offers hourly tours created as an interactive journey to uncover how chocolate transforms from the bean into the chocolate bar. Hosted by a Personal Chocolate Tour Guide, you will embark upon an entertaining quest alongside a handsome prince and his dragon sidekick.

Taste, touch and travel through a one-of-akind chocolate museum, gaze at a mystical river of chocolate, participate in a sweet catapult competition, enter the Kingdom Factory and watch chocolate being made utilizing old world machinery, all while gaining knowledge of the history, health, science and even heroism of chocolate.

The Chocolate Kingdom also features a Cocoa Tree Greenhouse and a make-yourown- chocolate bar to personalize the experience. In The Chocolate Kingdom shop, fresh chocolate confections, handmade bonbons, chocolate shots, gourmet hot and cold chocolate, candied cocoa beans and even Florida themed chocolate gator eyes fill showcases and shelves.

The Chocolate Kingdom is the brainchild of Edgar and Bernie Schaked, co-owners of Schakolad Chocolate Factory, founded in Orlando, Florida. Edgar Schaked is also the owner and producer of The Festival of Chocolate, the largest all-chocolate event in the United States.

The Chocolate Kingdom is open Sunday through Friday from 12 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m. – 9 p.m. Tours begin at 1 p.m. on the hour and run approximately 45 minutes featuring a Chocolate Tour Guide, tastes and interaction. Reservations are recommended.
