Chocolates just after creation
Edible adventures with kids
Everybody eats, but rarely do we get to know how our food is made. At local food producers around the Seattle area — chocolate factories, creameries and roasteries, to name a few — various ingredients get melted, ground, mixed or mashed into some of our favorite foods. Watching the process is mesmerizing for children and adults alike, and the end product always tastes even better when you’ve seen what goes into creating it.
Whether you’re looking to kill a few minutes watching dumplings get folded before lunch or you’re planning a day trip to a candy factory, we’ve got a few suggestions of places you can go for an edible adventure and all the fun of Willy Wonka’s factory without any of the Oompa Loompas whisking you away. Some of these stops offer formal tours, while others give you the chance to press your face against the glass and inspect the machinery. And did we mention the free samples?
