Unwrapping Hong Kong’s Chocolate Trail

February 3, 2015 by Helen Winter

Ever wonder what a real life Willy Wonka chocolate factory looks like? Well, in between January 23rd to March 1st you’ll be able to find it at Hong Kong’s sixth annual Chocolate trail.

Held at Hong Kong’s Harbour City, every year the mall is transformed from a popular shopping vista into a ‘ChocoLand’, where visitors are taken on a ‘Bean-to-bar journey’. The voyage explores how premium chocolate is produced, how to experience maximum chocolate tasting pleasure, as well as workshops, seminars, live demonstrations, and art exhibitions.

The Exhibitions

When you just feel like you’ve learned all there is to know about chocolate, the live exhibitions push your new-found knowledge to another level.  You can discover the best combinations with a Tea and Chocolate Pairing workshop, join a Fine Chocolate Tasting workshop, attend the International Chocolate Awards, occupy the children at a Chocolate Kids College workshop, hone your kitchen skills at the Muji Chocolate snacks cooking class and watch live demonstrations from chocolate Master Chefs.

The Chocolate

After all that chocolate knowledge, it’s time to sink your teeth into the glorious, creamy goodness. Fortunately, there’s only the crème-de-la-crème of the chocolate world to choose from. Along the trail, visitors can be tempted by ten pop-up stores featuring 30 participating chocolate brands from France, Belgium, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as brands exclusive to Harbour City.
