DANVILLE, KY — Morning Pointe of Danville residents were treated to a tasty trip to Old Kentucky Chocolates in Lexington. Tour Guide Cheryl Cooper guided the seniors every step of the way through the home of the Old Kentucky Bourbon Chocolates, Derby Mints, Chocolate Thoroughbreds and “Colonel’s Favorite.”
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Old Kentucky Chocolates has a rich history in Lexington with three locations full of delicious and decadent treasures enjoyed across the Commonwealth. The factory is open year-round, as the sweets attract guests of all ages — not unlike kids in a candy store.
But one can never grow too old to enjoy the classic chocolates and creams. After their tour, the personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care residents stopped by the gift shop, and didn’t leave without chocolate-covered pretzels to enjoy on the bus ride home.
Morning Pointe treats residents to their favorite outings, taking in Kentucky history, culture and pride one morsel, bon-bon and truffle at a time as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs.
