Lindt is opening a brand new Willy Wonka-style chocolate museum and you don’t need a golden ticket to get in!
Dedicated to the history and production of one of Switzerland’s most delicious exports, which dates back to 1845, this place will give Willy Wonka a run for his money.
The museum will contain the world’s highest free-standing chocolate fountain standing a whopping 9.3 metres high, circulating 1,000 litres of liquid delicious chocolate.
The huge exhibition space spans 1,500 square metres and gives you an insight into each aspect of the chocolate world through each different and specially designed room.
The Chocolate History room will show guests the 5,000 year-long history of chocolate, and the Swiss Pioneers room explains how Switzerland became the home of chocolate.
There’s also a real-life factory that will demonstrate exactly how modern production actually works – plus you’ll get to taste springs of white, dark and milk chocolate in the Unlimited Chocolate Tasting room.
Then there’s the wackiest room of all, the ‘Innovation Lab’, where you can get any of your wildest chocolatiest questions answered.
The Chocolate Factory – sorry, Lindt Home of Chocolate – is opening in Zurich on September 13th, and is well worth a trip to Switzerland for.
A new spot dedicated to pastel de nata has opened in Manchester Arndale
This looks so good!
If you love pastel de nata and are gutted that a trip to Portugal to sample them in their home country looks to be off the cards this year, then we’ve got some good news for you.
A new spot dedicated to the delicious little Portuguese treats has opened in the Arndale food market, and it looks so good.
Just Natas officially launched in the Arndale Market this week, joining established vendors like Viet Shack and Salt & Pepper.
Born out of a passion for the delicious, custard-filled snacks, Just Natas only serves up pastéis de nata and espresso – but what more could you want?
It’s open from 10am until 5pm – or until they sell-out, which has already happened this week – so you best be quick if you want to grab some.
It’s all baked fresh on-site daily, and you can even grab takeaway boxes stacked with as many natas as you like (all of them).
Just Natas is open every day from 10am at the Arndale Market, and you can follow them on Instagram here to stay up to date.
