Ghiradelli Presents ‘The Chocolate Experience’ with Sculptures at Epcot Food and Wine Festival


This year at Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival has an amazing chocolate exhibit sponsored by Ghiradelli called The Chocolate Experience: From Bean to Bar in the Festival Welcome Center building (between Mission Space and the now closed Universe of Energy–in the old Wonders of Life building.)

Disney describes the event as:

“Immerse yourself in the sights, smells and flavors of chocolate—the world’s most famous flavor! Marvel at chocolate sculptures created by our own Walt Disney World Resort pastry chefs and explore the journey chocolate must take to get from the bean to the bar.

Don’t miss your chance to sample chocolates, purchase gourmet drinking chocolate, select a wine and chocolate pairing, and shop for a bag of your favorite Ghirardelli Gourmet Chocolates.”

This year Disney pastry chefs and chocolatiers created amazing pieces of art out of chocolate.
