Chocolate Factory Tour

We loved our tour. It was great to see how you made the chocolate. We also loved all the samples you gave us. It gave us a great opportunity to try some of the different varieties you had.

Great tour

A group of friends and I brought our children in for a tour of the chocolate company. It was a lot of fun! We learned a lot of cool stuff and my kids enjoyed seeing behind the scenes.

Incredible Tour!

What a great tour! Not only did we learn a lot, it was so fun to learn the story behind Maverick Chocolate. Inspiring! And of course, the samples were incredible.

Knowledge and experience

Ben Picton himself was our tour guide! His son and wife were there hard at work doing what they all seem to love…making high quality sustainable delectable chocolate bars and truffles. Ben combines a lifetime of engineering knowledge with a genuine love of chocolate. From customized machinery to precision production, Ben and his family have nailed it. They offer a variety of dark and milk chocolate bars from sustainable farms around the equator offering their customers a delicious taste of cacao-turned-chocolate from places like Hawaii. Take a tour if you’re interested. You’ll learn a lot in an hour, taste some of Cincinnati’s best, and gain an appreciation of the true love and dedication behind each hand-wrapped chocolate bar from Maverick Chocolate.
