Get Yourself A Golden Ticket To Tour This Chocolate Factory In Pondicherry
What Makes It Awesome
When it comes to chocolate, there’s nowhere we’d rather be than at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Except that it doesn’t exist! But you know what does? The lovely Mason & Co chocolate factory in Pondicherry. The brand, which is known for their organic chocolates and their even more interesting flavours (think Chilli, Cinnamon & Dark Chocolate, Rosemary & Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar, and even a Peppermint & Sweet Nibs Dark Chocolate Bar), has opened out their factory to guided tours. This means you’ll be given an explanation on how the cacao beans are crafted into chocolates, and naturally, this means tasting is involved. Employing ladies from the local regions to make the chocolate, you can get up close and personal with them, as they take the beans and make them chocolate bars for you to indulge in.
And this Independence Day, you can certainly get your chocolate on if you're in Pondicherry that day, and the weekend to follow.
What Could Be Better
They don’t have regular tours yet, so make sure to keep track of their social media channels and the website to book yourself a golden ticket on their next one.
If you sign up for a tour, you get exclusive access to all their flavours and products (including limited editions!) and a chance to try their in-house bon-bons.
