Chocolaty learning experience

Year 9 and 10 catering students along with a group of Post 16 business students had a fantastic opportunity to visit York’s Chocolate Story on Tuesday 11 October 2016; discovering the history of chocolate and learning the secrets of chocolate making.

Students were involved in engaging activities all day including: decorating truffles, chocolate tasting and creating a brand and logo for a new flavoured truffle. After taking over the upstairs of McDonalds the group swapped over activities and then headed back to Freebrough, full of chocolate.

“I thought it was a fun experience.”

“It was different and a very interesting experience.”

“I enjoyed the free chocolate and learning the history of chocolate.”

“It was fun to make our own chocolate lollies.”

“I enjoyed taste testing the flavoured truffles.”
