Willy Wonka's LOCAL Chocolate Factory

Coffee and Chocolate are the two biggest for those trying to maintain a mostly Local diet. But if one is going to indulge, its best to enjoy those that are fairly produced, and easiest on the environment. And it doesn't hurt if they are created by local, artisan crafters. Enter my favorite purveyor of Chocolate-Taza!

December 5th 2009: Tour the Taza Chocolate Factory!

Alex giving a tour

Ever wanted a firsthand look at the inside of a chocolate factory? Now's your chance! Just in time for the winter holidays, Their opening the doors to the public for chocolate tastings and tours of the factory.On Saturday, December 5th 2009, visit them in Somerville, MA and see how chocolate really comes to be. Tours run from 10 AM to 6 PM, and are free and open to the public. Be prepared: There will be lots of tastings.The factory is quite small, so come early or late if you can't stand to wait!

Still need some Holiday gifts? There will be lots of tasty chocolate and holiday gifts for sale, at factory discount prices

I went last year and it was so cool to see how they stone-grind their chocolate using traditional Mexican Methods. Check out their website for some great information about how they make the chocolate, and drool over the fantastical flavors ( Guajillo Chili is my fave!)

So if you're free this Saturday, I highly suggest you swing by!

I live near Hershey's, and they also give tours. However, if I recall, the last time I went it was more of a virtual tour than an actual tour. This looks fun.
