If you like chocolate, sand between your toes, and a shot of tequila now and then, it's time you headed down to good ol' Mexico to check out the NestlÃ© Chocolate factory in Paseo Tollocan.
Unless you were coo coo for cocoa, the city near Toluca wasn't worth checking out; all it had was the Swiss-owned Nestle factory.
But as CoolHunter.net reported, "It is what is inside that has always interested chocolate-lovers."
Earlier this year, Nestle's factory got a little makeover from Rojkind Arquitectos, when Michel Rojkind "put together a team that came up with an entire museum, with a shop, a theatre, and direct access to the factory as well. The 300-meter-wide scarlet building cannot go unnoticed by anyone driving the entrance freeway to Toluca."
It's not the only chocolate factory in Mexico, but it could be the world's first "to be called both a piece of origami and a shipping container. The corrugated metal look gives it an air of impermanence and industrial clunk while the bright color and crazy shape evoke play and fun. What any of this has to do with chocolate, we are not exactly sure, but we almost managed to fold a KitKat wrapper to a similar shape."
