We went on a sweet field trip with our homeschool group a few weeks ago…literally!
About a year ago we read a Curious George book about a chocolate factory and my kids have been asking to go to one ever since. I thought it would make a great indoor summertime field trip so I started my google searching.
Lucky me, I found the perfect place in downtown Raleigh called Videri Chocolate Factory, Have you heard of it? Definitely worth checking out. Their delicious treats are organic and made from the bean!
They offer tours to groups or you can just stop by and get a great view of the process. Their factory is set-up with viewing windows and the process is explained with step-by-step signs.
We decided to set up a tour for our group. The staff was welcoming and very patient with the excitement of our little ones. I will never forget the delicious smell that came wafting out as soon as they opened the doors for us! And the inside was so cool. I could have hung out their all afternoon eating chocolate and having delicious coffee drinks from their bar.
The tour was fairly short, but informative. It was actually just long enough for our crowds attention span. At the end they gave all of us samples and some extras to take home! How awesome is that?
Wondering what our homeschoolers thought?
