As Easter Bunnies begin to populate storefront windows, a person's mind might turn to chocolate. (But you want the good stuff.) And you say you've always wanted to tour a chocolate factory? (See Below.)
Well, here's your chance.
Chocolate Box hosts a bus tour of Seattle's best chocolatiers, the shop's critically acclaimed, local confection suppliers. You'll begin at Chocolate Box for a history lesson on chocolate, with an introduction to Fiori Chocolatiers. Afterwards, you'll venture onto Theo Chocolate (in Fremont), and to Madison Park's Oh! Chocolate. From there you'll head to Fran's Chocolate, in Capitol Hill. The tour will return to Chocolate Box to sample drinking chocolate, concocted by Chocolat Vitale.
You'll sample the wares along the way, in some places witnessing the making of the candy, and at others, getting a chance to make your own confections. A two and a half, to three hour
tour, every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday during the month of March.
$65, including a goodie bag and souvenir.
Chocolate Box, 108 Pine Street, close to the Pike Place Market
