Chocolate Lover's Paradise

It looked like an ordinary factory: a brick building, a few dirty windows, some weeds poking through the cracks in the sidewalk out front, and workers filing in through the back doors. However, making my way towards the entrance, I was suddenly overwhelmed by a feeling of complete and utter bliss as the smells of fresh, rich chocolate wafted through the air. I suddenly realized that this was no ordinary factory.


I came to Theo Chocolate for one thing only – free chocolate samples. The tour I had to plod through and the hair net I so stylishly wore were merely necessities in my quest for rich, dark chocolate fresh from the hands of the famed chocolate producers themselves. Although the tour was highly informative, I constantly found myself wondering when the next sample would be passed around.


Theo Chocolate produces the finest organic, Fair Trade Certified chocolate in existence. With chocolate varieties ranging from Fig Fennel to Coconut Curry (and of course your classic dark and milk chocolates) I have yet to meet a flavor I don’t like. Theo not only makes fabulous chocolate, but they do so by utilizing sustainable and green production practices.


Leaving the tour, I stocked up on a lifetime supply of chocolate in the gift shop, but for some reason, I have this feeling I will consume it all before the night is over. Now I just need to somehow land a position at Theo Chocolate. In fact, I would happily volunteer my test tasting services for free.

Mmmm, that *does* look good!! We visited a small chocolate factory not far from here (Melb, Australia), but unfortunately there were not such things as free samples. Cost $4 per head for tastings. And our two year old scoffed down most of them in record time - much to the horror of the other visitors :)
