This Factory Lets You Gorge On All-You-Can-Eat Chocolates
If you're more into chocolate than Charlie and Willy Wonka then you're going to love this news.
There is a chocolate factory near Brussels, Belgium, that allows you to scoff as many chocolates as you can manage. No, we're not kidding.
Taking to Twitter, journalist Jon Stone announced his discovery and it is now going viral, racking up over a thousand likes.
He said: "I dont want to alarm anyone but at the end of Brussels metro line 5 there's a factory outlet for chocolate maker Neuhaus and you can literally 'try' (eat) as much as you like for free".

Jon, we are not alarmed. But we are currently booking a flight to Brussels.
Neuhaus Factory Shop in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, is just a metro ride away once you're in the city and it's like an outlet shop but for chocaholics instead of shopaholics.
From the Brussels Central Station underground, you simply hop on Line 5 to Erasme station in the South West of the city and it'll take a mere twenty minutes. Once there, it's an eight minute walk away.
That's just 28 minutes of travelling (one-way) people to gorge on decadent chocolate and let's be honest, once you've stocked up on chocs it'll be no bad thing you've done a teeny bit of exercise too.
Saying that, a cab back might be better - you will likely be laden down with sweet treat purchases after all. Sorry, not sorry.
Just don't go on Sundays, as it's only open Monday - Saturday 9am - 6pm.
The chocolate you can tuck into isn't any old stuff either. Neuhaus is responsible for inventing Belgian pralines - yes the very first ones.
There are just two rules once you get to the factory. Firstly, do not take unwrapped chocolates home - you can only eat the freebies inside the factory. Secondly, do not open any sealed boxes and tuck in - they are to purchase only (apparently the bigger the box the better the deal).
Other than that you can go to town. Even the translated sign in the Twitter post says: "Here you can taste our chocolate to your heart's content." And to our heart's content we shall.
If you've got a huge sweet tooth, you're bound to be able to make the most of it, whilst others, like one Twitter goer responding to Jon, explained that it's not the kind of chocolate you can eat loads of.
Sounds rich and decadent, just as we like it, so we reckon we'll manage it.
