I wasn't really sure what to expect - my friends and I had been talking chocolate over the weekend (one of my friends is a chocolatier) and discussing bits and pieces - but I found it really interesting. Actually seeing the process scaled down and learning about the different trade routes and processes involved from plant to chocolate bar in your hand was really interesting. Helen was knowledgable and more than happy to answer questions. Getting to try a wide range of different chocolates and talked through it was great. Getting to make your own bar of chocolate was pretty cool too!

As well as being fun it was informative, the tasting of the chocolate was enjoyable and at no point was it restricted what you could have. Caitlyn had been there for a week and felt like she had been there ever as she was very knowledgeable, purchased some of there chocolate from the shop and was not disappointed. If we were ever in Edinburgh again would definitely do the experience again
