The Whetstone Family invites you to a little whimsy… a free tour of Florida’s only real chocolate factory. What’s it like going to a chocolate factory? Visions of rich, creamy chocolates and the smell of fresh roasting nuts… it’s enough to make your mouth water just thinking about it! But you don’t have to just think about it — you can see it for yourself.
For nearly 40 years the Whetstone Family has been making chocolates in St. Augustine, Florida. Esther and Henry began the tradition of excellence in chocolate making and have passed the legacy on to their children, Hank and Virginia. Equally dedicated to creating fine chocolates, they continue to promote innovative new ideas in chocolate production.
The tour is free, self-guided and we’ll give you a free sample of our famous milk chocolate shell. Start your tour with a close-up look at the technology of modern candy making in our video theater. Then take a walk through the inside of our factory where you’ll get to see our huge Molding Plant making up to 500 pieces a minute; the Packing Room, where each chocolate is carefully hand packed; and the Specialty Room, where our wonderful confectionery creations take form.
