I very much enjoyed a tour of the Guam Premium Chocolate Factory, courtesy of William Ymesei. The $3 million facility, located in Barrigada, is outfitted with state-of-the-art machinery designed and built by engineers in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Switzerland—the same equipment used by Hershey’s, Nestle, Ferrero and Godiva. In other words, they’ve got quality stuff.
The Guam Premium Chocolate Factory produces 108,000 premium chocolate-covered macadamia nuts every day for Guam, Saipan and Palau. They also make chocolate-covered shortbread and asparagus biscuits (my favorite).
Visitors are welcome (weekdays only) but call ahead to make arrangements for a tour. 633-6646
