I hate that I even had to give this event 1 star. It was horrible. I frequent Goldstar events and have had wonderful success with others, but I highly suggest not buying this. Basically you get to walk by a cocoa tree and that is it.

We had fun with our new cameras even though the Garden was not in full bloom.

Description

A deliciously themed program in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden at The New York Botanical Garden offers families the chance to discover the plants behind their favorite flavors such as chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. Enjoy fun for the whole family during February break at “Tropical Treats: Chocolate, Vanilla and Spice,” a family supplement to the Caribbean Garden in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. 

Discover the plants behind your favorite flavors in “Tropical Treats: Chocolate, Vanilla and Spice”, a hands-on program for the whole family in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. Explore the seeds and fruit of the cacao tree, the bark of the cinnamon tree, as well as cloves in the Adventure Garden’s Discovery Center. As a reward for your scientific explorations, indulge in delicious treats to taste and smell. Compare modern-day hot chocolate with an ancient Mayan recipe in a taste test and use your senses to guess the flavor of cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate and coconut jelly beans. When you’re through, complete your “trip to the tropics” by venturing over to the warmth of the Lowland Tropical Rain Forest house of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory for Caribbean Garden where you can find the vanilla plant among other fabulous tropical plants.
