The Incredible Hershey World in Niagara Falls!

You never thought that trips to Niagara Falls Canada could get sweeter than seeing the newly crowned 10th wonder of the world could you? Neither could I until I stumbled upon Hershey World right around the corner from the touristy clad Clifton Hill!
Just behind the Crown Plaza, step into this interactive and aromatic shop through the 4-storey chocolate block. Head to the fountain and take a selfie beside the life-size Hershey Kiss or give him a smooch just outside! Once inside, marvel at every inch of this 7000 square-foot abyss of all things chocolate!
Dazzle your sweet tooth with a personalized bar, ice cream cone, a slab of many an in-house fudge flavour, or an ooey gooey s’mores bar just like those made by campfire!
Next time you head to the glorious Horseshoe Falls, plan on a sweet visit to the #1 dessert stop in the area! The Hershey World will certainly fill any sweet craving and have you yenning for more.
ChocoMuseo, Granada, Nicaragua
While exploring Granada, I came across the “Mansion de Chocolate” (Chocolate Mansion), located on one of the main streets. The place is very small and cozy and has an interior garden filled with cocoa trees. On the way out, you can see the chocolate being made and also buy chocolate products, all locally made.
Choco Story by Jacques Torres, New York, NY USA
The Choco Story experience at Jacques Torres in New York City is the first museum of its kind in New York. The space includes a museum of artifacts, children’s play center, a cafe, a class space, and chocolate demonstrations and most importantly tastings. The whole experience will take about an hour to enjoy. Be sure to check the schedule so you don’t miss the hot chocolate demonstration where you can flavor your own hot chocolate and the bonbon making demonstration where you sample a freshly made bonbon. In between the demonstrations you can browse the artifacts dating back hundreds of years and sample different types of chocolates and chocolates from around the world.

I hope you enjoyed all of these chocolate experiences.
