something different

great couple of hours spent in the chocolate experience shop in York, it was a Christmas present from my daughter and son-in-law, very well told and explained by the guide, all about Roundtrees and Fry's, how they started etc, lots of tasting, and even made our own chocolate lollies, just a shame it was such a hot day, so didn't buy anything from the shop, really enjoyed it though.

Chocolate tasting

This was advertised as chocolate tasting. It was more the story of chocolate and was quite interesting if you didn't already know the story and the staff were very good but I was expecting a lot more chocolate to taste. The hit chocolate drink at the end was very tasty.

Interesting

Although it was interesting and we did enjoy tasting a couple of chocolates and sprinkling bits on a chocolate lolly it would have been a lot cheaper to pay on the day rather than use the voucher which cost a lot more.

Disappointing really.

Upon arrival at the venue, there was some confusion with our booking / ticket. At one point the girl even asked us to pay ! It appeared that she did not understand the prebooking service at all. The 'free' souvenir guide book was not offered and had to be requested. The tour bit was good, if not a bit underwhelming. The tour guide was excellent, and chocolate samples were given. This was not a 'couples' event at all; the group consisted mainly of families, some with little concept for acceptable children’s behaviour. The description hinted at a tasting experience which wasn’t forthcoming or even offered. We had to ask again at the door. Only to discover that the tasting was simply a cup of hot chocolate from the shop. Not a 'tasting' as you would expect, but simple a choice of flavours.
