A Chocolate City!

Here at Hostels.com when I brought up the topic of chocolate cities some of my colleagues started to zone out and drool at the mouth as they imagined themselves living in a city made entirely out of chocolate! Unfortunately that wasn't exactly what I meant.

As much fun as a city made entirely out of chocolate would be, I was actually talking about cities and countries that are famous for the chocolate they produce or the role they have played over the years in the production of chocolate. Chocolate plays a big part in people's lives no matter where in the world they are, but every city / country has their preferences and tastes when it comes to the flavour of their local chocolate! With Easter fast approaching most minds are turning to those yummy chocolatey eggs and the thoughts of spending the entire day alone with them! But that's got us questioning where in the world you would visit if you wanted to find out more about chocolate, visit a chocolate factory or find some little chocolate shops selling the tastiest chocolate around? Leave us your thoughts and tips on this in a comment below as we want to include them in our new chocolatey based Travel Feature next week!
