We all know of the famous movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, how it involved little Charlie Bucket who dreamed of meeting the famous Willy Wonka and getting to see his huge chocolate factory.

After watching the movie starring Johnny Depp, those of us who dreamt of the Umpa Lumpa filled chocolate factory never believed that we would get a chance to see such a sight in reality. That was, until Egypt announced the opening of the first chocolate museum in the Middle East. The event is to take place from the 19th of March until the 21st in Egypt’s capital city of Cairo. It is going to be on the 8th floor of one of Cairo’s biggest shopping malls, City Stars.

The 4,000 meter-square museum is to portray over 4,000 years history on chocolate and its evolution, all in a “Willy-Wonka’s factory” like fashion (although sadly there are no reports on the Umpa Lumpas as of yet). Also, yes, it will include a chocolate lake and waterfall (just like the movie!). The museum is based on all things chocolate, from artwork in forms of sculptures and paintings, to the evolution of chocolate and its heavenly goodness.

The event is expected to feature many different sections for people of all ages. For the children there is a section made for them to play and explore their artistic talents in chocolate workshops.

There will also be different exhibits and activities for adults, an ice-cream buffet that can be topped with the best flavors of chocolate, melted chocolate that you can dip all your favorite fruits in (for those fantasizing about chocolate dipped apples or strawberry’s dipped in chocolate), and to top it all off there will be professional chefs who will be sharing all their best recipes for and secrets for different ways to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

So get your sweet tooth ready and be sure to visit the museum! Mostly because, if the event is a big success this year say organizers, it will be back again in next year.
