There's a delicious way to enjoy Seattle's "other bean" and see the city. Take The Chocolate Box Experience for a morning of chocolate education and plenty of sampling from some of Seattle's most famous chocolatiers.The same people who brought you the wildly successful Tour de Chocolat have created a new event that will entertain, educate and make you a real chocolate “snob”! We’re calling this fun morning The Chocolate Box Experience!Your experience begins at 9:00 at Chocolate Box, our temple to the Cacao Gods. One of our expert staff will greet you with possibly the world’s best hot chocolate from Seattle’s own Chocolat Vitale, good even on summer mornings. We then begin with a short overview of how and where 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 at 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! Now you get to make your own chocolate treats as we show you how to melt chocolate and properly dip fun things to make yummy confections … like pretzels, oreos, or fruit. Once you’ve licked all that mouth-watering chocolate off your fingers, it’s time to learn how to make a genache courtesy of Julian Rose, head chocolatier at Moonstruck Chocolates of Portland. Through the magic of video, Julian welcomes you to his private test kitchen and teaches you the critical subtleties of making the perfect truffle. We then get a private look into the very secretive Moonstruck factory to see how they make their magical and delicious confections … followed by samples of their creativity. Yum!Your experience ends with a thank-you bag of chocolate samples from our store as well as a generous shopping coupon … a coupon that’s also good at our sister store next door, Simply Seattle, the best place in town for souvenirs and gifts that scream “Seattle”!

We took our family in here and OMG! All of us had different things; gelato was awesome, brownies to die for, some sort of fudgy candy, all of it was exceptional. Every time we are in Seattle we make this a treat stop.
