True Bay Blue resort to host Grenada Chocolate Fest in May 2015

Chocolate lovers will be in for a treat next year as the Grenada Chocolate Fest is confirmed to take place from 8th to 17th May, 2015.
The chocolate-themed festival will take place at the True Bay Blue, a boutique resort located on the south coast of Grenada.

Visitors will be taken on a ‘tree to bar’ cocoa journey through various activities, such as the chance to be a farmer for a day on an organic cocoa farm where tourists will learn how to pick cocoa pods, harvest the beans, and prepare them for processing using traditional methods.

There will be workshops where guests can design and create their own chocolate bars at the Diamond Estate Chocolate Factory and there will also be a workshop that highlights the health benefits of chocolate.

Visitors with a sweet tooth will have plenty of opportunities to sample the local produce throughout the festival, including locally-brewed chocolate beer and rums, chocolate cocktails, local cocoa tea, and chocolate-inspired meals.

There will also be opportunities to hike through cocoa plantations in Grenada, and take field trips with local school children to learn about the history of chocolate on the island and the importance of a sustainable farming community.

Families can enjoy fun activities such as 'dancing the cocoa', 'walking the cocoa' and 'scooping the cocoa' at the Belmont Estate, and there will be an arts and crafts bazaar and fashion show selling art, jewellery and fashion that has been inspired by chocolate and cocoa.

At the end of the 10-day festival there will be a charity gala dinner at the luxury oceanfront resort, with special dishes that have been prepared by renowned chefs on the Caribbean island.

Grenada is home to miles of unspoiled white sand beaches, verdant green rolling hills, mountainous peaks, winding rivers, and cascading waterfalls.

It is also known as the “Island of Spice”, due to its position as a leading producer of spices including Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee, nutmeg and organic cocoa.
