It has still been ridiculously hot in the Spice Isle and this Saturday the remedy was a trip to the river. The river we chose to visit is one in St. Mark near the Diamond Estate Chocolate Factory. We jumped into my little adventure mobile, lovingly called Eggplant or Eggy for short (on account of its funky colour) and headed up the scenic west coast which allows you to have a beautiful sea view all the way to Victoria, St. Mark. I asked my partner to do the driving because I wanted to be able to capture the experience.

The gift shop was stocked with chocolate bars of varying percentages of cocoa concentration and varieties of flavours and textures and sizes (including a 2 lbs bar for the extreme chocolate lovers). My personal favourite was the 60 % with nutmeg flavour, it must be the Grenadian in me that would gravitate to the nutmeg (whispers...Respect the Nutmeg). Also on sale were cocoa nibs, cocoa tea balls and pure cocoa butter. It was a small slice of cocoa heaven!
