Great news for chocoholics and those that always dreamed of opening a candy bar and finding their own golden ticket inside: Universal Studios is opening their own chocolate factory inside Universal CityWalk.
The “Toothsome Chocolate Factory” area won’t actually have any kind of an affiliation to cinema’s most notorious chocolatier, but when it’s described as a home to “towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion,” and the ability of guests to “watch chocolate creations being made,” it certainly seems to be taking its cues from Wonka’s imagination.
Toothsome will feature a host of delicious-looking desserts for Universal’s guests in addition to a savory meal menu, but there’s no telling yet if any of it will be served by tiny orange employees. The press release mentioned menu items like a bacon milkshake, a salted caramel flan, and all-day brunch for those visiting Toothsome.
While it may not be a perfect facsimile of Wonka’s factory, it’s certainly better than nothing!
