TRIPLE CHOCOLATE DIPPER TOUR IN NAPIER WITH SILKY OAK CHOCOLATE COMPANY

The only comprehensive chocolate museum in the southern hemisphere it tells the story of a food whose past is as rich as its flavour, bringing it to life with colourfully-illustrated texts, life sized tableaux complete with sound effects, and a huge collection of chocolate paraphernalia dating from a 2000-year-old Mayan chocolate pot to modern commercial gimmicks. From legendary days when Aztec deity Quetzalcoatl gave man the 'food of the gods', it follows chocolate to Europe where it became the fashionable drink of the well-to-do then in Victorian times suffered the indignity of additives such as brick dust, arsenic and seashells, before the eventual emergence of big scale manufacturers with familiar names like Cadbury and Hersey's who took chocolate to the masses. There is a fascinating array of items all connected with history of chocolate. Included are 400-year-old South American Chocolate pots, fine European china and silver, beautifully-crafted boxes, long handled muddlers to spoon the thick melted chocolate 'drink' favoured by early European connoisseurs, and curiosities such as a 1900's American chocolate machine which for a cent dispensed a chocolate drop. 
This is self-guided, allow anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours (depending on your level of chocoholic addiction) to fully take in the history of chocolate from Bean to Bar.
