The Chocolate Factory!! (Part Two)
Here is the rest of the post!!
Next up is the surprise (later this afternoon), so stay tuned!! :)
Welcome to the world of Lindt
The machinery in the first half of the room
A little bit more about the roasting process
The milling machine
The cocoa mill
Yummy!!! Look at that chocolate!!!
The machines on the other half of the room
The rolling mill
There was even a chocolate fountain!!!
You even got to taste it :)
Machine #'s 20 and 21
(I think I missed a few somewhere - oh well! :)
The filling station
There goes the chocolate into the molds!
The black device in the middle loosens the chocolate from the molds
Here, the chocolate is dumped out of the molds...
...and continues down the line...
...while the molds go up and out!!
The robot transfers the chocolate from one side...
...to the next!
It's broken apart
At which time it goes to the wrapping machine
All the chocolates coming down the line!!
A "big picture" view
On the second level of the museum
We read about the production of hollow products
It was fun to watch the different people at work
Cocoa in Central America
Hot Chocolate as a Luxury Drink
Industrialisation of chocolate production
The view out the windows was very pretty!
Then we spotted...
(probably an advertisement for something)
We had to go down the elevator in two shifts (it was a small one!). When mommy and I came down with the stroller, this is what we saw when the doors opened - two great little guys!
I have a GREAT dislike for elevators - especially that one!!! :)
We had fun shopping at the chocolate store!!
There were too many choices!!! :)
Look at all that chocolate!!
Daddy and Shenandoah
Stasia and Sabrina
Sayer, Sienna, and Seth
Mommy and I
I wonder what was on his mind?... Maybe he was getting a chocolate coma :)
I hope you all enjoyed the pictures!!!
