There’s nothing quite like the sweet hormonal release of chocolate, so abandon your resolution-mandated fast and feast on delectables galore at MOSI’s second annual Festival of Chocolate Jan. 14-16.
The event is Florida’s largest all-chocolate-themed orgasmaganza. From lowbrow treats to fine confection — dark, white, milk, melted, frozen, frosted, filled, coated, you name it. Sample everything from truffles, cakes and cupcakes to cookies, brownies and ice creams.
Between gobfuls of yum, adults can watch interactive demos by award-winning pastry chefs, attend classes or try their luck at Brownie Bingo and help judge the best chocolate creation.
If that weren't enough to keep you occupied, a "Cocoa Couture" show on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. shows off models in edible fashions. (Talk about not being what you eat.)
For chocoholic juniors, the fest’s Kids-4-Chocolate provides ingredients for edible works of art, and they can enter their masterpieces in competitions.
Entrance into The Festival of Chocolate is complimentary with your admission to the Museum of Science and Industry.
Each adult advance purchase ticket will receive $2 in chocolate coins to spend at area vendor booths, which include Frost the Cake, Chocolais Wine, Joey Biscotti, Kookie Krums, La Creperia Cafe, Schakolad Chocolate Factory and many more.
