For many, chocolates are a weakness. Be it a simple bar, a cake, a doughnut, or just any other dessert, those with a sweet tooth struggle to avoid this indulgence. Offering an unmatchable experience that is enjoyed by kids and adults alike, the flavour of chocolate has inspired various innovative and delicious dishes around the world. Its fandom is such that we are sure while growing up, many of you must have wished at least once to make your own chocolate. Didn’t you? While you may think making chocolate at a chocolate factory isn’t really possible, a chocolate store in Japan is making it true! Yes, you read that right.  

The outlet, named KitKat Chocolatory, is located at the Miyashita Park shopping mall in Shibuya, and is perfect for anyone who wishes to alter or customise their chocolate bar as per their own taste. Curious about how it works? A blogger gave a glimpse of the Chocolatory in a video on Instagram, and we are drooling to say the least. “Make your own KitKat in Shibuya, Tokyo”, the text on the video reads.

In the video, we can see the staff at the outlet first teach you how the chocolate is made. After that, you get to choose the type of chocolate you want for the bar. The chocolate is then melted and poured into a mould before the wafer is placed in it. You can use a range of adorable toppings to give a personal touch. Once this is done, you let the bars chill in the refrigerator. The end result will be the shape of the iconic KitKat bar with the same texture, just with your own little touch of creativity. While the bars get ready to be eaten, you can nosh on KitKat shake, ruby chocolate or dark chocolate bar and more. Exciting, isn’t it? Take a look at the video that has attracted over 700k views already:

The chocolatory is a popular attraction in Shibuya where people learn and make their bars in groups too. There are three types of chocolates available to experiment with including bitter, milk, and ruby. In addition, there are 17 different types of toppings such as dried strawberries, hazelnut, pistachio, and edible flowers to choose from. Well, if you haven’t planned a trip to Tokyo yet, this can be a great motivation, what do you think?
