Wonderful World of Willy Wonka


In honor of Father's Day tomorrow, I thought i'd share some 
pictures of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory a local chocolate shop I visited. 




Sorry if I awoke the Hungry-Chocolate-Beast inside you :P

Hey we have that chocolate shop here ;) Down in Galveston and in San Antonio. The chocolate/caramel-covered apples are deeeeeelicious!

I love, love, LOVE Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory! I can't get enough of their dark chocolate almond and walnut clusters. Oh boy...

Can't wait to see the results of your vegan nanaimo bars!

I love those decorated covered apples, bet they are tasty too! I think your bakery goods belong in there, or my tummy. :-)

Oh wow, everything looks so pretty! They're like works of art..I wouldn't want to eat them to avoid destroying their beauty.

How funny that we both want to move to the same place! I really related to the hectic weather patterns (one day sunny, one day miserable)...just a few days ago we had a day where it poured rain and then was extremely hot and it kept going back and forth all day long. I had a headache, I felt awful, and my mood was incredibly low. I definitely get where you're coming from with this love. Hopefully we can both get out lol. And you should be expecting a package pretty soon as well! I hope you enjoy it.

As for GF Vegan Nanaimo bars, I am very excited to see what you've come up with. I've always wanted to try one of the raw nanaimos that I've heard about but never actually seen. Is your version raw? Either way, they look amazing..can't wait to see the recipe! xoxo

I've been to a lot of great candy shops, but none with as cute chocolate covered apples as the ones here!

Joanne said... [reply]

This post has my stomach growling. Intensely. How did you ever make it out of there without eating everything?

Kittie said... [reply]

What in the world is a nanaimo bar anyways? I keep seeing them everywhere and I never have before in my life....

Chelsea said... [reply]

Going into chocolate shops/bakeries is like torture for me since I can look, but I can't eat. :( It makes me want to open up a nut-free bakery!!

I have a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in a 10 minute walking distance from my house but I have never been there! I can't believe it after seeing all your great photos. Thanks to you I may find myself indulging in quite a bit of chocolate today. :)

Have a great Father's Day and Sunday! I look forward to your nanaimo bars!

Kady said... [reply]

Are you teasing me with these nanaimo bars??? They are my absolute fave!

Ahh I love the chocolate factory! Look at those apples. I think that is such an art to be able to turn an apple into hello kitty!

XXOO

I love the beaver! How Canadian is that? ;)

I've been in that store before and overdosed on chocolate from the smell alone. It's like heaven...

lisasfoods said... [reply]

I'm assuming that you'll include the recipe for those bars. They look deliciously rich. And Rocky Mountain has great stuff - I haven't been there, but I've gotten gifts of their fudge before.

Alex said... [reply]

chocolate covered marshmallows are a weakness of mine... :)

we have one of those stores in Houston :D
