You will be then taken to a classroom where you will create your own chocolate bar following a similar process. Instead of taking the tour, you can choose only to savor various chocolate products at the factory. In another tour (for adults only), you will be shown how spirits like rum, whiskey or port wine are mixed with chocolates to bring about unique flavors.
