Bring the kids along and let them experience a Chocolate Dipped History. Children are invited to celebrate and learn about the history of chocolate. Located in the Linda J.

You can sample your chocolate and they can sample (and play with) theirs. Adults are still welcome to stay if they would like. Activities include a craft, hands-on educational activities, trying out chocolate samples and making your own chocolate treat to take home.
