June 2nd was my daughter Kilah’s birthday and all she wanted was to go to St. Augustine, Fl for a week. So, my youngest son and I, Kilah, her husband and kids went. We walked and walked and then walked some more (most people walk, ride bikes or take the trolley rather than drive), but we had a great time and did a lot of interesting things and visited quite a few places. Other than the beach (of course) , my favorite was the Whetstone Chocolate Factory Tour. It was very interesting to see how they make their chocolates. The tour guide was great. He was full of information, asked many questions, was very funny, and best of all, he handed out lots of different chocolate samples.

I loved this tour and will probably do it again the next time I’m in St. Augustine. See that t-shirt in the next to the last photo? I love that! “Put The Chocolate In The Bag And Nobody Gets Hurt”.

  1. Yes, I can see that I might have to be frisked before I was allowed to leave this place. My brother might not even be allowed inside. We are chocolate-crazy.

  8. Vicki, this looks like a fabulous and delicious tour! Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures.

  9. St. Augustine is on my list of places to visit but I never knew there was a chocolate factory there! I think I have the top place to visit!

  10. Lucky you! I’d love to go on that chocolate tour. Haven’t been to St. Augustine in years, but have fond memories of it.

  11. What fun! And I *do* love that T-shirt. Another item to put on my Florida wish list.

  13. Would be too dangerous for me! Cheers from Carole’s Chatter!

  14. Well that does look a lot of fun.

  15. Well, that sounded and looked fun! Thanks for sharing Vicki

  16. So glad you had a good time, I had no idea there was a chocolate factory in Fl. When I saw that conveyer belt with the worker and her hair covering, thought of Lucy and Ethel. Love the t shirt, I hope you bought it.

  17. That sounds like such a fun tour to take! I’d be tempted to stick my fingers in places they shouldn’t go, much like some of the children at Wonka’s factory! My son and I took a tour through the Jelly Belly factory years and years ago, and I still remember it with great joy. Thanks for giving us a look inside!

    (p.s. Did you know that the jelly bean which stick together, or are otherwise unpresentable, are called Belly Flops and sold at a discount? 🙂

  18. All I could think of was the willie wonka factory tour! LOL! What a fun afternoon! And free samples! Right?

  19. It’s been a while since I have done a chocolate factory tour. There is one a couple of hours away from me that I should do as a day trip one day.

  20. June 2nd is my birthday too! Looks like your daughter had a great day here. I would love to go on a tour like this!

  21. I enjoy doing tours like this; thanks for taking us along on this one.

  22. yummy that looks like a mouth-watering tour to me!

  23. Mmmmm……chocolate!

    I’ve never been to St. Augustine but, if I do get down there, I’m going to have to check this place out!

  24. Looks like so much fun.
