Hoffman's Chocolate Factory! Can you Wellington Homeschool Moms think of a better field trip than to go to a Chocolate Factory? Now, this is my kind of field trip!
Forget dissecting Squid at the Science Museum,
forget the awesome trip to the Trauma Hawk
and the South Florida County Fair;
BRING ON THE CHOCOLATE!
Hoffman's Chocolate Factory is a family run business started by Mr Hoffman many years ago. He was working so hard 7 days a week for a company when he decided that if he had to work that hard he might as well create a business in which his whole family could work beside him in. So he quit his job and opened up Hoffman's Chocolate Factory. Mr. Hoffman now has his son running the business but he still makes candy every day at the factory.
You can not miss the Tudor style building on Lake Worth Road which is very unconventional for South Florida. It looks like you have just arrived in Bavaria. The factory is behind the retail store and is divided by glass windows so you can watch the candy makers at work. Right now they are making these 3 feet tall Chocolate Bunnies for Easter.
At the end of the tour the son Mr. Hoffman came out to talk to the homeschool kids. Boy did these kids have some great questions. One of the girls asked, " Why does some chocolate taste really good and others don't? He talked about how he sends tasters all over the world to taste the ingredients. Hoffman's uses only the freshest ingredients and high grade chocolates and coffees. They have been getting their chocolate from Africa, near the equator and their coffee from Costa Rica. They are also developing an organic line of chocolates and coffees. Now that is what I am waiting for!
In the factory they use only copper kettles and natural gas for making chocolate candies. But there are some other great sites to see while you are visiting Hoffman's Chocolate Factory. Each year they have over 20,000 visitors come to look at the wonderful Christmas lights that are displayed through the gardens behind the factory. The display is on from Thanksgiving through the Epiphany. During the rest of the year there is a wonderful display of flowers and native Florida plants to adore. We were not able to see the gardens because they were doing some renovating. Another highlight is the miniature to scale train sets with over 500 feet of track called the Garden railroad. It is a fun trip to take your kids on just make sure to bring money for Chocolate!
In the meantime, Hoffman's Chocolates are very famous around Florida and it is absolutely to die for! Mmmmmm Good Stuff!
