Chocolate lovers worldwide rejoice! Universal Studios in Orlando, FL, just announced that it is building its very own chocolate factory. Called the “Toothsome Chocolate Factory,” the gigantic building will be a monument to all things chocolate.
So far, many who have heard the news have been quick to associate the Toothsome Chocolate Factory with “Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory,” the stuff of Roald Dahl’s imagination that has been cinematically retold on more than one occasion.
But so far, Universal Studios has made no mention of Willy Wonka. Instead, Universal Studios revealed that the Toothsome Chocolate Factory’s design was inspired by Steampunk, a subculture that combines a healthy mix of science fiction and Victorian engineering.
That being said, the factory will feature 19th century decor with “towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.”
Either way, for the global population that consumes 7.2 million metric tons of chocolate per year, the soon-to-be chocolate cathedral is quite the dream come true.
According to comicbook.com, the factory, located on City Walk, will largely be a restaurant. So far, it seems that the menu is dazzlingly chocolate-y with menu items like a cupcake topped milkshake and a bacon brittle dessert.
While it sounds mostly like a glorified dessert restaurant so bar, Universal revealed that the restaurant will also offer a fair share of savory items, like all-day brunch, burgers, steak and pasta.
Just like in Willy Wonka’s factory, visitors will be able to watch chocolate confections being made real-time. Unfortunately, there’s been no mention of a chocolate river or Oompa Loompas.
So far, there’s no definitive date for the opening of the Toothsome Chocolate Factory. In the meantime, chocolate lovers and fans will wait with bated breath.
