A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_2774While we were in Henderson, we decided to make the most of it and take a trip to Ethel M chocolates. From the Ethel M website, “In 1981, after passing the leadership of Mars, Inc. to his children, Forrest Mars Sr., retired to Henderson, Nevada and created Ethel M.® Chocolates as a tribute to his mother, her recipes and chocolate making teachings.” Mars is a highly recognizable brand with names like M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, DOVE®, TWIX® and more under their belt.

IMG_2763Unfortunately, when we got there, they were not making candy.

IMG_2764Still pretty cool to see all the equipment. When you reach the end of the hall, it brings you out to the retail shop where they give you samples!

IMG_2776Outside their factory, they have a lovely cactus garden that you are free to roam around.

IMG_2766There are over 300 species of plants in the garden. See the website for some examples of what you might find!

IMG_3353We brought home some bars ($2.50 when you buy 4) as well as the nut & caramel collection shown here ($34).

IMG_3363There was a nice assortment in this collection.

IMG_3356The pecan toffee crisp.

IMG_3362The almond butter Krisp.

IMG_3359The chewy caramel that came in milk and dark.

IMG_3358The creamy caramel that came in milk and dark.

IMG_3357The almond crunch in dark.

There is a kiosk past security in terminal 3 in the airport in case you want some last minute gifts, but it was more fun to go and see the factory!
