    That looks like the kind of place I would want to live. I mean, in the factory. I would want to live IN the factory.

  2. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Wow. I am drooling. I think it was the swirling vat of white chocolate that did it for me. I don’t usually like the stuff, but theirs sounds incredible. And I see a licorice bar! I’m one of those awful people that likes licorice.

    You two are both so purty!

  3. Conor @ Hold the Beef

    I have a pretty serious bone to pick with the career advisors of my high school. Absolutely no mention of the Chocolate University was uttered to me as a confused 17 year old. NONE! Imagine what I could have become. While eating chocolate, just imagine. I’m kinda glad you didn’t go down that path though…you’d be an unstoppable chocolate force, like King Midas but with chocolate instead of gold.

    An epic post for an epic day! I don’t have anything worthwhile to add – you covered it all, including all the talk about the farmers that’s hazy in my head because I was so earnestly eyeing the chocolate samples. And you threw in the word “bequeathal.” I can’t top this.

    Amazingness, amazingness. I want ALL the things too.

  6. Errign

    That sounds like the day of my dreams – I looooooove chocolate!

    Nofair! Just as I decide that we should probably fly from one side of the country to the other because time will be limited, you and Amber throw good coffee and chocolate in my face and give me every good reason to drive across instead! (I suspect it’s a good thing I have nearly two years to figure this out, it’ll take me all of it!!!) 😀

    Eeeep! You know how sometimes people say ‘you can never go back?’ well you CAN. As you have just proven. This place looks just wonderful. And Amber’s tshirt (and smile) is adorable.

    Wowowowow I’ve always wanted to visit a chocolate factory! hehehe it must have been heavenly!! Can’t wait to read more about their chocolate!! 😀

  11. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    WOW this will definitely be a dream come true for me too 🙂 Visiting a chocolate factory and having the chance to try it all wow! It’ll be so dangerous for me to go~ I’d eat so so so much of the chocolate hahaah

  12. Hotly Spiced

    I’m on the edge of my seat. I so desperately want to see Laura’s house. The chocolate tour was fantastic but bring on Laura! xx

  13. Gmasydney

    White goats milk chocolate? How do they make it white? I hope you found that out for me. (You both look gorgeous,too.)

  14. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Wow this seriously seems like a perfect day 🙂 So happy you got to go there after years of anticipation!

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Awww I love that you went there and it was everything you wanted and more! 😀

  16. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Even though I’m not as passionate about chocolate as you are, I still enjoy visiting chocolate factories. So much joy! Askinosie looks like a very nice one too, everything sounds very gourmet and delicious!

  17. whisperinggums

    A 12 hour road-trip in one day … glad I didn’t know about that before hand! Still this first part looks wonderful … I will now wait patiently for the next.

  18. Rach

    What a cool experience!

  19. JohannaGGG

    I am sure if mallory ever decides to leave that you would do a great job as no 1 promoter of askinosie chocolate – sounds like a great tour – look forward to the review (am hoping the liquorice chocolate is in your stash) and to part 2

  20. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh my goodness. Chocolate factory and Laura Ingalls Wilder on the same day?! I’m not sure if I’d have coped. Or, alternatively, I’m not sure if you’d have been able to get me home at the end of the day. Either way, it would have been magical indeed and I am so thrilled you got the day 😀 I’m looking forward to part 2 already.

    Wow, day of your dreams! What an incredible experience. I’ve only managed to lay my paws on Askinosie once or twice, but it was so delicious- I can well understand your excitement.
