One of the most well known makers of chocolate, the Old Kentucky Chocolate factory invites visitors to participate in a tour of its factory grounds. The tour provides guests with the opportunity to travel behind the scenes and experience the cooking, molding, and packing process Old Kentucky utilizes to create and sell their treats.
The tour brings visitors right to the edge of the table where goods are being crafted, allowing them to get an in-depth perspective into the crafting and handiwork that goes into creating each of the dozens of products sold on site. Additionally, a knowledgeable guide, who provides background and shares stories surrounding Old Kentucky’s past, leads each tour. The tour finishes with an “I love Lucy” moment where guests are able to taste a sample directly off the conveyer belt.
