‘Sweet Addiction‘ is an exhibition you can taste! It’s the first themed exhibition in the brand new Calyx – the exhibition space of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney. Exploring the world of chocolate, ‘Sweet Addiction’ offers a journey of learning through a tropical rainforest and the home of Theobroma cacao, the chocolate tree. See the Mayan god of chocolate depicted in the southern hemisphere’s largest contiguous greenwall, learn about the vital importance of the world’s remaining rainforests, see a sustainable-style of cacao plantation. In The Mill, you can find out how chocolate went from ritual to retail, including the modern way of making chocolate and its various additives and flavourings, like nuts, vanilla and fruit.
Finally, the Chocolatier Room will be a chocolate sponsors’ area with celebrity chefs and artisanal chocolate, including tasting lessons and even chocolate meditation.
Enjoy interactive educational experiences with our video wall and touch screen ‘Jungle Life’.
