Sean Everett, Realtor S.171162, Tour Ethel M Chocolate Factory in Henderson, Nevada with The Everett Group at Simply Vegas
Looking for fun family activities to do this holiday season? You have to visit the newly remodeled Ethel M Chocolate Factory in Henderson, NV. Ethel M Chocolates' also have a breathtaking Botanical Cactus Garden. During the holiday season every tree, plant, shrub, and cacti are wrapped up in lights! It's fantastic!!
When we arrived to the Chocolate Factory we started our evening by taking a leisurely stroll through the Cactus Garden. We had a jolly ol' time listening to the holiday music and snapping photos of our munchkin dancing around. The Ethel M Botanical Cactus Garden features over 300 species of plants. Half are cacti and succulents and the rest are desert trees and shrubs. All of these plants were chosen both for the beauty of their floral displays and their ability to adapt to the climate of Southern Nevada. It is one of the world's largest collections of its kind. If you are bringing your little ones I'd recommend a stroller to save your arms while you walk through the light display.
After walking the decorative lit path we stepped inside to warm up and take advantage of their self-guided chocolate tour. The best part is that it is free and open to the public. When you enter the tour a chocolate sample is given out to each person. The treat of the day when we arrived was white chocolate bark. It was scrumptious! Depending on what time of day you go you might just catch chocolatiers and machines creating the Ethel M Chocolates that you know and love! During our visit we got to see how they make their heart shaped chocolates. We were told to ensure that the facility is always delivering high quality, preservative-free chocolates, their schedule in the Factory varies. So from time to time, the factory may not be bustling with chocolatiers during your visit. I would call in advance to check that their factory is running when you go. At the end of the tour you get to choose what chocolates you want to buy and take home. Make sure you ask for plenty of samples!!
Our favorite item was by far their pecan brittle! Surprisingly, one of Luscian's first words was chocolate! He learned it from his cousin when he was 17 months old. He does a full on impression of her when he says it. He sticks his elbows out like a chicken, shrugs his shoulders and shouts "CHOCOLATE" with a deep voice. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Now we can't help but do the same thing every time we say the word too. For your entertainment we have evidence to show you the silliness below!
The Everett Group at Simply Vegas wishes you the best this holiday season!
