Had a great time at the factory tour! Cheryl, our tour guide, was wonderful. Came with my 4-yr old and he had a great time too. Cheryl was extra sweet to him. ;) Thank you Whetstone Chocolates and Cheryl for a delicious experience!

A great place to learn something and eat chocolate. Full factory tour of a working chocolate factory. Even our last trip to Hershey Pa. couldn't boast that. Guides were entertaining and informative. And they gave us chocolate. The ticket gives you $2 off a $4 purchase of ....chocolate.

This was a stop on the old town trolley tour. we arived just in time for a tour. They have three or four times a day at set times, so call ahead and make sure you time your visit around a tour.

Informative and interesting tour of the on-site chocolate factory. Started with a short film about how chocolate is made, then we got to try white, milk, and two types of dark chocolate squares along with a bite of fudge and a toffee shell all while learning and seeing the process of artisan chocolatier-ing for ourselves. Our tour guide Joe was... More

Cheryl did a wonderful job explaining the operation. My girl friend and I got a kick out of Lucille Ball's famous chocolate factory scene complete with life like manikin and counter.

As a mother of two kids, time managment is key. I won't be long winded as "us moms" want to get to the point. Bascially we booked a spot for our family (4) to take the tour. However, my 2 year was hungry. Five minutes after booking tour in person I returned to the store to change the tour time... More
