Stroll through San Francisco's charming Union Square and along the waterfront as you explore 4 different chocolate shops. Discover historic and cultural landmarks like the Palace Hotel between decadent tastings with the aid of an expert guide.
Your tasting tour begins at Fog City News, an importer of premium chocolate bars from around the world with one of the largest collections in the United States. The staff at Fog City is serious about chocolate and happy to lead you in your own tasting of some of their unusual, hard-to-find brands.
Next, step inside New Tree, a vibrant downtown café where you can take a break under the bamboo canopy. All their products are certified fair trade and sourced from just 4 co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru. Continue on to Spicely Organics, which is full of fresh and dried organic spices, chocolates, and seasonings in eco-attentive packaging.
Your Bay Area chocolate tour wouldn’t be complete without a stop at world-renowned Ghirardelli, San Francisco's premier chocolatier since 1849. The last stop of the tour transports you to Japan at Minamoto Kitchoan, a fine purveyor of a traditional Japanese chocolate confection called wagashi. Typically made with plant ingredients like mocha, azuki bean paste, and fruit, wagashi is often served with tea.
