If looking for a day out sampling all sorts of chocolates, you are in luck! Do go with your ferocious sweet tooth as visitors are offered all sorts of chocolates from the vendors.

The most amazing items I saw were the dresses of chocolate. Some were adorned with chocolate pieces or cupcakes but others were made of chocolate.

Visitors are allowed within a foot of the dresses allowing one to see the details up close. I saw quite a few posing for pictures with the magical dresses.
