There’s a delicious way to enjoy Seattle’s “other bean” and see the city. Take The Tour de Chocolate for a morning of chocolate education and plenty of sampling from some of Seattle’s most famous chocolatiers.
We’ve brought back the wildly successful Tour de Chocolate with some tasty new updates that will entertain, educate and make you a real chocolate “snob”!
Your experience begins at 9:00 at Chocolate Box, our temple to the Cacao Gods. One of our expert staff members will greet you with possibly the world’s best hot chocolate from Seattle’s own Chocolat Vitale, delicious even on warm summer mornings. We then feature a short overview of where and how cacao is grown, along with lessons on the right way to eat fine chocolate. Your “snob” training has begun!
You’re then placed on a luxury van for a short and scenic ride to a chocolate factory tour of Theo Chocolates in Fremont – the country’s only bean-to-bar, organic and fair trade chocolate factory. Willy Wonka would be proud! Your factory tour is wonderfully educational and full of samples of most of Theo’s world-famous bars.
After your factory tour, your van transports you back to Chocolate Box via another scenic route around Lake Union (your out-of-town visitors will love the unique Seattle sights). The fun has just begun! Back at the Chocolate Box, you’ll get to make your own chocolate treats as we show you how to temper chocolate. You’ll also learn how to properly dip fun things to make a yummy confection of your own, incorporating fun ingredients like pretzels, Oreo’s, or fruit. Using items from a huge buffet of yummy ingredients, you’ll also be making your very own custom chocolate bar!
Your experience ends with a thank-you bag of chocolate samples from our store as well as a generous shopping coupon – it’s also good at our sister store next door, Simply Seattle, the best place in town for souvenirs and gifts that scream “Seattle”!
