We didn't have the opportunity to attend the tour but we did have the chance to purchase several of the chocolates. We loved how helpful the staff was at the King Street location and allowed customers to sample some of their wares. The gelato selections are quite tasty, not overly rich and very flavorful (I recommend the rum raisin). My... More

Chocolate lover or not, this cost effective tour is fun for all ages. I work in the travel/tourism industry and have been on many tours world wide. I have to say, this one is one of the best. Our guide made you feel apart of the "whetstone family" vibe that nourshes the entire factory. Even to the cashier who checked... More

Took this tour on Dec 14 at 3:30pm. Last tour of the day. The gentleman who led it was fabulous! Energetic and entertaining throughout. It was just too bad we couldn't show more appreciation for the work he put into doing it. Maybe buying chocolate was enough? We did buy some and I learned some things I did not know... More

Each time we go to St. Augustine Whetstone Chocolate is a must visit. I go in and purchase 4 truffles every time. It takes me forever to pick them out. I then savor one at the time I purchase it and then one a day for the next few days. I have never chosen a bad flavor in all the... More

We were in St. Augustine for the Nights of Lights and spent a few days touring this wonderful town. One of the stops on the trolley was the chocolate factory and tour. Cheryl gave us the grand tour and was so informative on how chocolate is made and how the beans are harvested. This is the best chocolate I have... More

Visited Whetstone while in St Augustine for our anniversary & my birthday. I'm not a "chocoholic" but really enjoyed the chocolate & cashews candy. I also bought peanut butter fudge and maple walnut fudge. Both were delicious. Wish I had thought about Christmas shopping while I was there! I know my friends and family would love having some of this... More

My wife and I went on the tour of Whetstone Chocolate Factory yesterday. Cheryl gave a very information explanation of how chocolate is made and how Whetstone's process removes the bitterness found in other chocolates. They provided samples of of their products in addition to the differences in how they are made. Excellent presentation and wonderful products.

Awesome chocolate! We enjoyed the tour and chocolate tastings with Cheryl. 50 minute tour, you get too see the whole process and learn about the history of chocolate.
