John Bull Rock Factory

Today we (the hubby and the mini me's) went to the John Bull Rock Factory at the Carnaby Industrial estate situated just out side Bridlington. We went to do the factory tour, having been a few years back my eldest Valentino really enjoyed it so we thought we would head back as Lorenzo was only a baby last time we visited.
Unfortunately the factory tour was only open to watch the rock making, on our previous visit we made chocolate lollies and watched how they made different chocolates and other yummy treats.
Valentino and Lorenzo watched the process of how they made the rock, the rolling, chopping and of course there were samples of rock and sweets for us to try. The boys wanted to roll some rock and they wanted to have their initials made inside the stick they were rolling. So Lorenzo had a L and Valentino had a V.
We were slightly disappointed that the whole factory wasn't open but still enjoyed it all the same. Here's some pictures of the rock and the boys rolling their own mini masterpieces, and of course the yummy factory shop :)
