Mapro Garden-Taste of Tradition

#Garden in Panchgani

Mapro Gardens placed in the hill station of Panchgani is a beautiful and refreshing location situated close to Mahabaleshwar. It hosts the annual Strawberry Festival, where one may also try fruit flavored shots. The highlights of this festival are fresh farm picked strawberry and miscellaneous forms of chocolates along with cultural folk performances with an edge of tradition such as Shivkalin Dhol and Lezim.

Mapro Gardens is a very beautiful location to go with family and friends and hang out while one is listening to music in the slow slumber of dew drops falling around and the smell of fresh grass as if the vast expanse is covered in emerald sheet. One may try various flavors of squashes right from guava, mango, lichi, custard apple, pineapple and many more and quench their appetite. A chocolate factory, a small nursery, a restaurant serving delectable food, children's play area and retail outlet selling mapro products are famous in garden.

"A very famous landmark since many years. Mapro is a food processing company which manufactures jams, jellies and chocolates. They have their factory outlet known as Mapro Garden on Panchgani-Mahabaleshwar road. This place serves very good small meal options. Strawberry with cream, Mango with cream, Sandwich and woodfired oven fresh pizza are must tries. They have tasting counters, where one can taste the fruit syrups and other products of the company free of cost. Sales counters sale the factory fresh products. There's also a small Tulip garden and other sweet photo spots to click nice pictures of oneself, friends and family."

"Fresh mango icecream and fresh strawberry icecream are worth to have. Plus you get free taste of their wide range of milkbased abd water based squash and crush. Expect for waiting time after placing order on weekend and other public holidays."

"It's a great marketing technique from Mapro ( Manufacturer of Famous Felaro jelly chocolates) Pros : You get to choose hundred of Mapro products at 10% discount on MRP . We will realize there are so many products in the market from Mapro which we never knew. All fruit crush flavours and lounge flavours can be tasted... Yes, you can taste any of them before purchasing, they have specially trained employees to quickly make a drink and serve u. The place is made with a Mapro theme and can be enjoyed as a very small amusement park for kids who can spend 30 to 40 mins. Good parking space free of charge maintained by Mapro team. Cons: The chocolate manufacturing tour is not worthy. Half the processes are not visible from the glass panes as they are dirty and smudgy. You can only witness the packaging of chocolates to some extent. No instructions or guidance on any steps of manufacturing of these chocolates. This place on Panchgani road is not the exact factory. This is the old location of the chocolate factory. the factory is located at a different place now. There are couple of sales counters inside the garden which presents huge range of chocolates, jellies , fruit crushes, lounges etc.. I felt they are a bit expensive and buyer will not have a comparison option unlike other outlets."
