The next day, we went to a trip to Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Gardens.
|This is the only Ethel M factory in the world. |
Forrest Mars Sr. named the brand after his mother Ethel, who made chocolates from scratch -- right in their own kitchen.
We were given free chocolates at the end of the mini tour. I forgot, Mars Chocolate North America are the makers of Las Vegas’ own Ethel M Chocolates.
Anyway, good thing, we just had full breakfast so the kids didn't insist we buy chocolates! Mymy, was having fun with her camera though.
We then headed to the unique, three-acre Botanical Cactus Garden. It features more than 300 types of cactus including spotted aloe, agave plants, Texas prickly pears and yuccas. We loved the weather that day too!
We also saw the state-of-the-art solar It provides 100 percent of the electrical energy to the Ethel Ms plant during its peak operating hours.
