I find that tours can usually be divided into one of two situations. One of them is more of a museum like situation where they are going around pointing to various objects, and having you interpret them. Then there is the other category. Something a bit more interactive turning itself into a show. Andrea made this a show.
The Chocolate Tour at Lydgate Farms was a great immersive experience. The basic outline is that first you try chocolate, then you try various fruits native to the island. Finally you see Cocao trees and learn the entire process of how Cocao fruit is raised and harvested.
At the end of it, you go through and blindly taste nine different chocolates local to the area and from around the world. Throughout the tasting, Andrea delved into the history of chocolate and how the geography of the Cocao trees influences the taste of the chocolate.
Overall, if you are a fan of chocolate, and wondering how it is made, and love to eat it, you’ll love this tour.
