Middle East’s first chocolate museum soon in Egypt

Roll up your sleeves. You are about to be immersed in the blissful enjoyment of chocolate world like never before.  
The first chocolate museum in the Middle East is coming to town soon at City Stars shopping mall on the 8 floor. Most people save their 'diet free day' for the weekend, and so is the chocolate extravaganza; it will open doors from 19 till 21 March.
The 4,000-meter-square event will wow its guests with a lake of chocolate. And as if this is not enough to make our mouth water, Aly Abdel-Hady, the event's advertising and social media officer, promises more eye-pleasures with the presence of "chocolate waterfall and river like the one appeared in 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ film starred by Johnny Depp.”

“If the event was met with great enthusiasm, Cairo Chocolate Museum would be back for round two in 2016,” Abdel Hady concluded.
