Wasn’t Candyland a great place? Sure, it was just awful when you were just spaces away from winning and then got stuck and couldn’t move, but that rainbow slide? Man, that was cool. Sometimes we still wish we could live in that world, where swamps are muddy with thick, rich chocolate.

If you’re like us and pine for chocolate swamps, Saturday may just be our lucky day. The third annual Chocolate Festival is back and bigger than ever, complete with a massive chocolate fountain and a “chococinema” devoted to chocolate related films.

The Chocolate Festival will take place in Versoix, just outside of Geneva, with buses (chocolate buses?!) transporting chocofans to and from the temporary chocotown.

So if you’re like us and find green beer just a little bit gross, take a dive in a chocolate swamp. It may not be any more glamorous, but it’ll be a whole lot sweeter.
