Universal Studios Is Building a Willy Wonka-Inspired Chocolate Factory!
Holy Snozzberries! I’ve got some pretty awesome new for all of you Willy Wonka fans out there. Universal Studios has announced that they will basically be building a Willy Wonka-inspired Chocolate Factory.
The Toothsome Chocolate Factory isn’t directly related to the book or the movies, but it’s a 19th century-themed Steampunk chocolate factory where you’ll easily be able to get your chocolate fix. It will include towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.
Here’s some more information from the official announcement:
The food will take your imagination to new heights with a menu that features unique twists on classic steak, seafood and pasta entrees, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, incredible salads, all-day brunch and so much more. And the desserts will be simply…stunning.
Here’s a sneak peek of some of the milkshakes to get your mouth watering:
Chocolate x5: An explosion of chocolate with chocolate spirals, chunks, ice-cream and whipped cream.
Bacon Brittle: A fun twist on a breakfast favorite with bacon ice cream, bacon brittle, chocolate covered bacon and bacon caramel.
Espresso Buzzzz: A coffee lover’s dream with coffee ice-cream and chocolate covered beans.
Red Velvet: A milkshake topped with a Red Velvet cupcake… enough said.
Key Lime Pie: We’ve taken this classic Florida dessert and turned it into a delicious shake. You’ll even get a slice of pie on top!
The sundaes are anything but ordinary with flavors like Salted Caramel Flan, Chocolate Brownie Bark and S’mores. This extreme twist on a summer favorite features layers of chocolate ice-cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallow cream and graham crackers.
Then, like in Willy Wonka’s factory, you’ll be able to watch all of these wonderful chocolate creations being made, only in this instance, you don’t need a Golden Ticket to get in. I’ve included several pieces of concept art below including some of the wonderful food you’ll be able to eat.
The Chocolate Factory will open later this year, and I can’t wait to go!
