Boasting three locations in Dumfries and Galloway, Glasgow and the Lake District, The Cocoabean Company is a family-run chocolate factory, shop and café. Experienced team members organise interactive chocolate workshops for both children and adults who can make their own chocolate creations and take them home. Customers can also enjoy their time in the Cocoabean Café which offers a range of hot chocolates, milkshakes, desserts and lunch items. Additionally, the spots can host special events to celebrate a birthday or organise a hen night.
Not sure it would be worth the full price. My 3 year old was the only child doing the workshop but she enjoyed herself. She got to make 2 things (lolly, bar and Christmas tree) and the girl was helpful and kind :)
Kids had a great time, very well organised and only negative was trying to stop yourself buying all the treats on offer at the cafe.
Bought it as a birthday gift for my grandsons and they had a great time, they said they would definitely go back again.
My granddaughter loved it. We were 30 mins late due to traffic and they were terrific and my granddaughter got her session one on one Which she just loved. Great fun xx
Loved the class. The deal we had included a lunch box with a ice cream and a slush. This is very generous but is a lot sugar! Think next time I would not bother with the slush! It's a bit too much for the kids as they get to eat some chocolate too while they are making it.

Had a wonderful time at Braehead Glasgow, the kids loved it. Nicole was so helpful,patient and made it lots of fun for them.
I took my little girl there for her 3rd birthday treat, but she was too shy to leave me and go into the chocolate workshop with the other 3 children. However, Isla was amazing with her and spent time with her and tried to make her feel comfortable, she spoke about favourite colours and chocolate flavours but my wee girl still wouldn't go in - even though she was starting to get more relaxed. But Isla brought everything out to my daughter! So she got to make her own chocolate bar with sweets, a chocolate pig and decorated marshmallows with chocolate and sweets. She then enjoyed her lunchbox, slush and ice cream. Even though she was shy she said that she really enjoyed the experience and is really proud when she is showing off all the chocolate things that she made! Thank you Isla! We'll definitely be back :)
5 star for the chocolate workshop. It is fantastic.
The deal we got included lunch box with slush and ice-cream. Lunch box doesn't contain big enough to feed my 4 year old fully, would suit younger kids. Slush machine wasn't working. Staff were great and we got alternative but still had disappointed kids who had wanted their slushy.
The open soft play area is not good. Can forsee a few pages getting filled in the accident and incident book if something isn't done about it soon.
