When we read about the Chocoversum Chocolate Museum in Hamburg I knew we had to go. We are dedicated chocolate lovers and this seemed like a great excuse to eat more chocolate in the disguise of learning all about how it was made. What a perfect thing to do in Hamburg with Kids.
So what did we think of Chocoversum Chocolate Museum?
Chocoversum Chocolate Museum got a huge thumbs up from all 7 of us. From the moment you arrive at Chocoversum Chocolate Museum and start the tour with your guide you are given your first bit of chocolate to eat. Warm melted chocolate from a chocolate fountain which drips onto the waffle you’re handed. It was delicious and really set the tone for the tour.
The kids were in heaven and actually would have been happy if that’s all they had been given – although it really wasn’t!
In order to give your chocolate bar time to set you start at the end of the chocolate making process and are taken first to a kitchen area where you can choose whether to make a bar of dark chocolate or milk chocolate and choose what to include in it.
Toppings from gummy bears to hazelnuts, peppercorns to rose petals are all on offer and you can make your chocolate bar as grown up or as child friendly as you like.
The children have their own lower table to create their master piece on and my three really went to town with their ingredients, definitely pinching some to eat there and then when I wasn’t looking too.
Once the bars are finished they are placed in a large fridge to cool whilst you do the rest of the tour.
After moving on from the kitchen you start to learn all about the chocolate process. Learning about the cocoa beans (they are covered in the white slimy flesh) onto how those are harvested and quite how many of those it takes to make a single chocolate bar.
You then move through the various development stages and yes I can confirm that you eat more chocolate at each stage. The kids weren’t too keen on the crushed cooked beans but started to taste the chocolate again that they liked as they ate the samples at the next few stages. There was also an opportunity to try both the milk and dark chocolate and compare – it really was an oh if I must moment.
