Whetstone Chocolate Factory - Review

Dozens of yellow green pods hung from the trunk and stem of the tree. The guide picked one of the palm sized fruit, and exposed chunks of the fibrous white pulp inside with his knife. This was the fruit of the cacao tree, with a mild taste, subtle, and bittersweet. Once the dark purple coloured seeds are dried and processed, they become chocolate beans. For the true chocoholic just the thought of that wonderful soft sweetness melting into the mouth is alluring, so visit the Whetstone Chocolate factory for sheer pleasure of witnessing how chocolate is made.

The sweet-smelling fragrances that come from Whetstone Chocolate's several stores and St Augustine Chocolate Factory beckon you to come inside and discover a chocolate paradise. In 1966, Whetstone Chocolate began as a small store selling ice cream and chocolates. Soon it grew into a large-scale operation with three stores in St. Augustine and a remarkable St Augustine Chocolate Factory open for tours.

Now the family became retailers of chocolates as well. The factory was previously located on Cordova Street and in 1984 they branched out into a 10,000 square foot factory. People from all over the United States come to the Whetstone Chocolate Factory, not only for their numerous varieties of fudge, ice cream, and sugar free varieties but what charms the audience are the chocolate dolphins and gators as well as delicious St. Augustine truffles.

The tour is twofold. The first step is to educate you on how chocolate is made, the growth, harvest and production of cocoa seeds. Second is to educate your palates to the delicate varieties of chocolate which define artisan chocolate. Taste freshly made chocolates and confections while you walk through the Whetstone Chocolate factory. The tour guides are informative, funny and tuned with the participants. They deliver information while keeping both kids and adults involved.

Whetstone Chocolate Factory, St Augustine Reviews

  • It was a nice tour, and very reasonable ($8.00 plus you get to taste several chocolates). Teresa, our tour guide, was excellent. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because they were only doing one pour mold chocolate and did a foil wrapping demonstration. There was no other production currently going on, which is what I was really interested in seeing.

  • Book the tour ahead of time if you want to do it. Apparently they sell out. The chocolate is high quality and tasty. The caramels were fine but nothing to get excited over. The store is long and incredibly narrow. You have to literally squeeze past people at the counter when you browse. I would go to a different location to shop. Also, I agree that some of the employees could be more welcoming.

  • We didn't purchase tickets ahead of time but arrived Sunday morning a few minutes before they opened and were able to join the first tour. We purchased our tickets with no issue, and joined the group. Our guide was great, Conner, he was informative and funny. It was Sunday and the production lines were not up and running, but Conner did a great job at explaining how the different chocolates were produced. We sampled several different chocolates. The store area is a little small, and can be difficult to move around in when shopping. We enjoyed our tour and purchased a few items to take home.

  • If you go on a Sunday, there is not much to see as the chocolate factory is not operational that day. It would have been a better experience if there was a better tour guide. Connor was rude, inconsiderate, and not at all what you would consider to be a good tour guide. Chocolate is supposed to be fun!! I hope they retrain their staff soon and make the tour more fun...or at least fun! That aside, the chocolate samples were good and we did learn alot about how the chocolate is made. We all had to wear hair nets which I understand but they made my 8 month old wear one, so the whole time I was struggling to keep it on him so we wouldn't be kicked out of the tour.

  • The tour we took of the factory was very fun and informative. Our tour guide had a very dry sense of humor, but he was mostly polite. The smell of the factory was wonderful, and, of course, you exit through the gift shop. The chocolate itself is good. A step above what is found in supermarkets but nothing to go crazy for.
