Chocolate Festival & Expo

Chocolate Festival & Expo

Has the question ever crossed your mind if it was possible to fall into a chocolate induced coma? Well if it was ever going to happen it wouldnt be in a fictional childrens book but rather at a festival set up to celebrate all things chocolate. That's white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, diabetic chocolate and organic chocolate in all its shapes, set out to attract a sweet-toothed public at Johannesburgs Chocolate Festival & Expo, at the Gallagher Convention Centre. More than your day to day slabs, sauces and sweets the expo introduces you to, chocolate dishes, spas, diamonds and make-ups that are just some of the unusual products and services on offer at the festival. Visitors can also join informative workshops, where topics such as the Risk of Obesity and Dealing with Diabetes are dealt with as well as learning how to cook with chocolate at the Theatre Kitchens. That sounds like a lot to take in but its all possible because there is plenty of entertainment for the little ones too while you are busy. The fairyland and theme park has bouncy castles, musicians, magicians and puppet shows that should entertain them for hours.

The festival takes place each year in March at the Gallagher Convention Centre, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
