last blog of the holiday although a lot has been missed out due to lack of time in our busy schedule. Also back on a PC which helps a lot as I am more used to it.
On the last day we all visited a chocolate factory for some free samples and a tour which again was set up and organized by our fantastic hosts Vickie and Pat.
The factory was situated on Beach Road Daytona just along from the Marina.
As we entered the smell was divine and chocolates everywhere with lots of free samples too.
The firm was started by these two women in the kitchen in 1925 and has now grown into this magnificent shop and factory. (note the train Charles)
Sue and Vickie in their element, ah chocolate!
Bacon and Egg on a plate with Orange. Now the bacon is real smokey bacon covered in dark chocolate and lasts about eight weeks, if you don't eat it.
Now on to the factory, the device on the right envelops the cherry with a thin coating of you guessed it....chocolate.
This chap had a boring job of imprinting the symbol of the type of chocolate it was. ( note how the Americans spell moulds)
This happy chappy pressed the chocolate into the mould, see his right hand was blurred with the speed of the operation.
Finished product just out of the mould.
Lastly the shop where all the goodies are sold, you can just see our tour guide on the right.
Right, that was it, back to the house and off to the airport. thanks for looking, Mike and Sue.
