Chocolate: Seed to Sweet

In 2010, the imaginative exhibition Chocolate: Seed to Sweet took visitors behind the scenes of chocolate making, from the roots of of the cacao tree to candy factory confections.

The interactive journey featured a giant caco pod and a 20-foot flower dome that brought to life the history, production and uses of chocolate around the world. The fun, educational experience wrapped up inside a miniature factory that showcases the candy-making process.

Chocolate experiences in the Garden included Holiday Chocolate High-Teas on Sundays, Drop-In Family Classes for candy making fun, and a special theme of Mocha & Mudslides during Cocktails in the Garden.
