Recently I wanted to explore my city more than my regular day to day stuff. I love finding family friendly things to do that are free. I chose to go to the Videri Chocolate Factory. O my I love chocolate. I had heard there was a place that turned the Raleigh Depot into a chocolate factory.
They have amazing samples to try and you can buy your own box to take home!
They have it set up in such a way you can walk around and peek in the windows and read the signs to see how the chocolate is made on the spot. Kids will love looking in the window wathcing the process! Then you can enjoy many yummy treats in their bean to bar chocolate cafe.
The inside of the building itself is so worth going to see if you enjoy sight seeing of marvelous industrial buildings.
This coco pod was big. I was able to pick it up and shake it to hear all the coco beans. I had never held a coco pod before and didn't realize how big they are. Speaking of which they use only organic coco & process it from start to finish themselves in the factory! They make amazing coffee & chocolates.
I had taken a ton more pictures but I decided to leave those out so if your in the area I won't spoil the fun! I would recommend it as a place to stop in & see if your visiting the Raleigh area.
