Okay, so let us get this right. In Daytona Beach, there's a real life chocolate factory, that offers FREE tours, AND gives you FREE chocolate samples at the end of it? Too good to be true? It's real!
We'll see you there!
Angell & Phelps is a very delicious chocolate factory that was set up in 1925 by two women who just loved food, and of course loved chocolate. The factory still to this day carries on traditions started all the way back from it's first days producing yummy chocolate for families to enjoy, and is a nice way of looking back of the history of chocolate making, and see how the taste differs today.
You can see how the chocolate that you can try in the store is made - and the old fashioned way!
The choc-tastic tours are guided and last about 20 minutes, and unless there are more than 15 of you, you don't need to make a reservation!
You can walk along and look at the chocolatiers through beautiful large cottage windows where they not only make chocolate, but other delicious candies. Our mouths are watering already!
There are 6 tour times a day, 6 days a week (they are closed Sundays) on the hour from 10am - 4pm inclusive.
Did we mention the free samples at the end?
Come on fellow sweet tooth's, let's go!
If you spend the next few days wishing you had more chocolate, don't worry - they ship!
Um...well perhaps you want some, say.... chocolate...? That they can do!
We're not sure if Willy Wonka will be there, but you can certainly find lots of other creative chocolate and candy makers at 154 South Beach Street in Daytona Beach.
If you are coming from the I-95, merge onto W International Speedway Blvd / US 92 via exit 261 then follow signs for Daytona Beach or Airport. At the intersection of International Speedway Blvd and Beach St, turn right onto Beach Street. The smell of chocolate will be one block on your right.
There is free parking behind the building.
The tours are totally wheelchair accessible!
