Eating a creamy Cadbury egg is a decadent chocolate experience, and everything is amplified when doing so inside Cadbury World in Dunedin. Set in the heart of the city’s downtown, Cadbury World takes visitors inside the art of crafting their chocolates, and offers the chance to see each step, from cacao through the finished product. On a self-guided tour of the visitor center, read the placards that detail the history of the famous Cadbury chocolate company, and see some of the quirky ads that have been displayed through the years. To really get a feel for the chocolate, however, as well as a succulent taste, join in the hour long, guided tour that includes a trip through the sensory lab to experience each step in the process. There’s even the chance to create your own chocolate and have a hand in the experience, as well as a gift shop and Cadbury Café that can tackle the toughest sweet tooth.
