The island of Grenada lives up to its nickname of “the Spice Isle” with its delicious local fare. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth, the tropical paradise is known for its exports of the spicy, savory and sugary variety. A fantastic place to explore while visiting the island is the Grenada Chocolate Factory, where guest can learn how cocoa is transformed from bean to bar.
Since 1999, this solar-powered chocolate center has resourced Grenada and the Caribbean’s finest ingredients to make some of the best sweets around. Surround yourself in the rich smells of chocolate during a tour of this facility, which specializes in several different delectable flavors up to 100% chocolate. See how the bars are created, then sample different kinds like sea salt, dark chocolate and even one that includes actual cocoa nibs inside. The Grenada Chocolate Factory has won several awards for their bars and also offers a new cocoa powder made from ingredients right on the island.
Bring a few of your favorite bars back to Laluna and experience the flavors in a whole new way when paired with one of the resort’s excellent wines or specialty coffees. Or, enjoy the view and a light night breeze on the private veranda of your spacious cottage suite with a luscious cup of cocoa in hand.
