Beryl's Chocolate Factory Visit

Entrance to Chocolate Boutique

This is a very outdated post. JC, Ian's kindy organized an excursion trip to Beryl's Chocolate Factory last year. I decided to tag along as this was Ian's first trip in this kindy and having known that one of the mommies I knew would be going too.

We reached the kindy very early and the parents were seen chatting away and getting to know each other while waiting to board the bus. We boarded the bus at around 10am and left for our destination in four buses. The kids were sitting with their partners while accompanying parents were assigned seats at the back rows. The teachers occupied the kids with singing and games.

When we finally arrived at our destination, all of us were being guided to a mini theatre for a brief show on how chocolates were made. We then proceeded to the exhibition room with different types of chocolates on display. Photographs were strictly not allowed once we stepped into the premises. It took us less than 30 minutes to complete the whole visit. We were then directed to the Chocolate Boutique where I bought some chocolates for the family and Ian's class teacher.

I later found out the chocolates sold at the boutique of the factory were even more expensive than those sold at supermarkets but they did have more selections though.

We made an appointment to visit Beryl's factory in Seri Kembangan last week. Our names and contact number were jotted down by one lady name Cik Nani. We were told that there would be 3 buses today, and we could join them for the factory visit.

This morning, when we reached there, we were told that the factory was not open. Only the was open.

When we asked them how come we were not made known earlier that the factory would be closed today, specifically we only enquired and were interested in factory visit. No proper explanation was given except that the store was open and we can proceed to buy some chocolate instead.

We especially made our journey very early in the morning for the factory visit. We were very disappointed with Beryl - not even an apology, but instead being pushed to buy chocolate?

Apparently, they are only interested in selling, and selling, rather than providing a genuine factory visit.
