In Belize, one of the things I was looking forward to was visiting a chocolate factory. I love sweets, and I often joke I would be easily 30 pounds thinner if I would stop eating sugar.
My brother and I left my parents to travel over to Moho Chocolate to check out what kind of chocolate we can purchase. You can also take a seat at their bar and order drinks! Drinks & Chocolate = Heaven
We walked up to the store and noticed the smell instantly. It was glorious.
We found out there was a chocolate tour for a mere $2 so we waiting for my parents and went on the quick tour. It only takes 15 minutes and you get to sample all of their available chocolate.
After the tour I went through all their souvenirs, and really considered buying the chocolate wine, but didn’t.
The chocolate tour was interesting, we learned about the process. The Cacao is purchased locally along the coast line and transported to the store where is all processed locally.
You can even make your own chocolate bars! Looking back I wish I would have done this, oh well maybe next time 😉
It is all fair trade, the buy everything local to support local farmers. I am a big fan of any company that utilized their countries resources vs outsourcing.
Overall the chocolate store was everything I expected it to be, and if you ever see Moho Chocolate in the store do yourself a favor and buy a bar. It is yummy.
And, if you are ever in Belize City, please make your own chocolate bars, and let me know how amazing it is!
