On Sunday, International Chocolate Day will be hosted in Santa Cruz by Destination Chocolate Trinidad and Tobago and the Santa Cruz Green Market.
This is the fourth year the festival has showcased dozens of local chocolate makers, chocolatiers, cosmetics made with cacao, cocoa inspired jewelry, sweet and savoury cocoa-flavoured foods. This year the offerings will be expanded even more than the previous years.
Individual chocolate makers will teach the basics of small scale chocolate making and chocolate tasting. The Cocoa Development Company will run an informational booth on cocoa growing and the cocoa sector. Children will get to paint, play and taste and secure parking available.
