Y3 York Chocolate Story

Our trip to York’s Chocolate Story

Year 3 had the magnificent opportunity to learn about the history of chocolate at York’s Chocolate Story. We went back time to discover the origin of chocolate and how it was founded by the Aztec people. They valued the cocoa bean and formed a basic drink that tasted very bitter at first. We learned how it changed from 1800 onwards where milk and sugar were added to create the most famous brands like Aero, Kit Kat and Terry’s chocolate orange! As well using our 5 senses to judge ‘good quality’ chocolate, we watched professional chocolatiers make chocolate moulds with a delicious passion fruit flavour inside. We even got to make our very own chocolate lollipops with different toppings! Take a look at the photos to see what we’ve been up to.
