WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Old Salem Museum and Gardens again will host its popular "Chocolate Dipped History" weekend of events, which will re-create and re-emphasize the history of one of America's most popular foods.

Friday night's "An Evening of Chocolate-Dipped History" is an adult-oriented social event, which will include chocolate-themed hors d'oeuvres, dessert stations and drinks. The event, which will include live music, is from 7 to 10 p.m. and costs $40 per person ($30 for Friends of Old Salem). Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.

Saturday's all-day chocolate activities are geared toward families and individuals of all ages. Titled "A Chocolate-Dipped History: Celebrating Coffee, Tea and American Heritage Chocolate," the event will teach attendees about how and why drinking chocolate, tea and coffee was once a popular past time and meal ritual across the U.S. Guests will also experience an interactive "bean to beverage" story and sample authentic colonial-style chocolate still made by American Heritage Chocolate®. Tickets for this event cost $23 for adults and $11 for children ages six to 16. "Friends of Old Salem" can receive free admission. Those tickets can be purchased online or at the door, as well.
