Prince Charles has visited a chocolate factory.

The prince and Camilla were given a colossal hamper full of goodies to mark their visit to House of Chocolate in Grenada's capital St George's, the fifth stop of their tour of the Caribbean

Charles eyed up the chocolate liqueurs joking: "I might have to try some of that on the way back!"

Chocolate educator Magdalena Field told the couple the story of how chocolate is made.

Charles quipped: "They are all very good for you, I'm sure! Did you make all these yourselves, even the chocolate gold?"

The couple were then given some cocoa tea to try, but seemed surprised at the bitter taste.

Camilla was not too keen but Charles seemed to be a big fan and asked to finish hers as well, which he promptly did.

They were then given a whole selection of chocolate samples to try, which they enjoyed.

Flavours included charcoal roasted beans, dark with bee pollen, sea salt, nutmeg and spices.

Camilla was taken with the bee pollen variety while Charles was very keen on the spice, claiming the pairing was a particular favourite, according to staff.
