chocolate overload

Chocolate. And a Schokolade Museum! Couldn't resist...
Lovely to see the history, old graphics and packaging.
And the chocolate molds were lovely. Reminds me of my childhood. My mum was always up with the latest fads of the day, never missed a beat, and not only would she relish a new craft but she's end up being the queen of it. Chocolating-making was no exception. I remember mum brought all the great to Brownies one time and showed everyone how to master the art. Polishing molds so your choccies are all nice and glossy, painting in the colours first, careful not to drop any water in the melted chocolate, least it should go lumpy and set...good times.
Some lovely molds the museum has on display.
The museum covers history, farming, production, and advertising.
Nice typography. And below, some of the fine offerings from the museum shop.
