Touring Cadbury World in Dunedin (Day 4)

When we just arrived in Dunedin, the first tour I visited with Yen was the famous chocolate factory in Dunedin - Cadbury World.

Cadbury World is just located in the Dunedin city centre

The latest fee for a Chocolate Full Tour ticket is $20 per adult. I actually still keep my own Cadbury ticket and it showed that I went for the tour at 3pm on 21st May 2008 with the price $16.

You can opt for Full, Shortened or Centre Tour. For Factory Tour, you are allowed to visit all parts which consist of the visitor centre, guided factory tour, retail store, chocolate fall and also the threatre presentation. The duration for Factory Tour is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

It costs $14 per adult for the Shortened Tour. The tours only last for 45 minutes and it operate on weekends, public holidays and when the factory has no production. As for the Centre Tour, the tours take about 10 minutes. There's no factory visit, so it only costs $5.
At the visitor centre, you'll be amazed with the chocolate themed displays and learn about the development of chocolate and Cadbury through the ages.

We also followed the tour guide to outdoor and viewed the interesting vintage trucks in Cadbury theme. While at outdoor, the tour guide explained more information about the Cadbury buildings to us.

Unlike other typical factories, this chocolate making factory is clean and fun. Remember to take some chocolate samples along the tour. Among all the demonstrations, the Purple Silo was the most attractive part to me. A tonne of liquid chocolate dropped from a 5 storey height in front of our eyes, it's so amazing! 
Before we left, we had a chance to buy some favourite Cadbury chocolates and merchandise at the retail outlet.
All sorts of chocolate and merchandise are displayed at Cadbury World Retail Store

Both of us spent a great time at the Cadbury World and brought some chocolates back.
