Universal Studios Orlando's New Chocolate Factory Is Your Willy Wonka Fantasy IRL

Chocolate lovers, prepare to have your minds blown.

If you're a chocolate fan — and who isn't — get a paper bag ready. Because you're about to legit hyperventilate when you hear this news: Universal Studios in Orlando is set to debut a Willy Wonka-esque chocolate factory that sounds downright amazing.

According to a post on Universal Orlando's blog, the park plans an opening for the Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Emporium venue at Universal CityWalk later this year. 

The place will have a vibe reminiscent of a steampunk-style 19th century chocolate factory. It will include smoke stacks, kooky gadgets, and staff wearing uniforms that fit the theme.

And here’s the part that has us really giddy: In addition to fare like burgers, seafood, pasta, and all-day brunch, the place will offer a menu of appropriately over-the-top desserts.

Think milkshakes like the “Chocolate x5,” a chocolate-on-chocolate delicacy with chocolate spirals, chunks, ice-cream and whipped cream.

The “Bacon Brittle” is a twist on breakfast, with bacon ice cream, bacon brittle, chocolate-covered bacon, and bacon caramel. And then — wait for it — there's the “Red Velvet,” is a milkshake topped with an actual red velvet cupcake. Hi, a cupcake on top of a milkshake. 

The sundaes are no joke too, with a s’mores-inspired version featuring layers of chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallow cream, and graham crackers.

The new place will also allow you to watch as your chocolate creations are made on the spot. Just BYO towel to sop up the drool you’ll puddle on the floor while you wait.
