You can even eat the dishes in Tampa. OK, not literally, but you get what we’re going for. The Tampa Bay Chocolate Festival returns to the Carrollwood Cultural Center on February 15, 2020.

The themed food truck event from Generation Entertainment will feature 40+ food vendors all sticking to the chocolate theme. Sweet and savory options will be represented. Basically, you’re diving into a river chocolate at Willy Wonka’s mobile chocolate factory.

Chocolate-themed items at every vendor

Confirmed participants include Buzz Pops, Rockstar Lobster, The Bacon Boss, FrappeXscape, Mad Beach Chocolates, Wonderland Desserts, and Dude Pancakes.

Chocolate won’t be the only thing on the menu. Each vendor will offer up normal menu items in addition to a chocolate-themed dish. So if you just want to sample some good local eats, you can do that too.

Largest food truck rally coming to Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay Chocolate Festival is free to attend and is pet- and family-friendly. This event will run from noon-6pm. You can find full details and vendor updates on the Facebook event page.

Generation Entertainment is looking to break a world record before the end of 2019. The World’s Largest Food Truck Rally is set for November 30 at 11am at Coachman Park in Clearwater. The foodie fun will run through December 1 at 8pm.

This event could shatter two world records: The Largest Traveling Gourmet Truck and Street Food Festival on the planet.
