For an overview of the Seattle chocolate scene, start with Savor Seattle’s Chocolate Indulgence Tour. With over sixteen decadent sweets to sample, you’ll be glad for the chance to walk between sites on the itinerary that includes: Cupcake Royale, to taste the ever popular dark chocolate cupcake milkshake made with Theo Chocolate; Chocolate Box, to learn where chocolate comes from while you indulge in artisan truffles; Fran’s Chocolates, where asking “What chocolate do you use?” will win you more scrumptious chocolate delights; and Dahlia Bakery, for a piece of restaurateur Tom Douglas’ world-renown triple coconut cream pie. Tip: Bring a container just in case you can’t finish the abundance of chocolate snacks on tour.

Don your hairnet, then have a seat as you discover the story and mission behind Theo Chocolate, the first organic fair trade certified chocolate maker in the U.S.. Enjoy a range of Theo’s darkest-to-lightest chocolate marvels while watching a short film about the chocolate producing process. Wonder where Theo’s magic happens? Take a walking tour of the 20,000 square foot facility for a peak at the chocolate pipeline that moves finished liquid chocolate into holding tanks. Continue into the kitchen to learn how ganache (melted chocolate and cream used for icing and filling) is made, and, happily, to nibble on more chocolate. Wrap up your tour with a browse through the specialty gift shop.
