    I'm not sure if you're familiar with my love of chocolate, but I LOVE chocolate. Like... to the point where I have bands or people on our crew tell me NOT to eat it most of the time because I think I'd actually overdose on it if that's possible. I don't drink and we went on a brewery tour while we recorded and it was semi-interesting but now I finally get my day to shine. In Birmingham, England we visited the CADBURY CHOCOLATE FACTORY!

    We waited in line and received a Curly Wurly and a Crunchie Bar, went on a journey through Ghana to learn how Cocoa beans were first used in chocolate and... well... more boring history stuff until we got MORE CHOCOLATE and got to see the actual factory part. It was amazing how cool everything was, and how much I ate. We went on a rollercoaster ride incredibly slow through the history of a cocoa bean reenacted by animatronic cocoa beans, took a picture of myself if I was chocolate, hugged Evan (Into It. Over It) by a chocolate christmas tree and shopped a bit in the gift shop.

    We had a blast and if you're ever in England I highly suggest you do the same!
