This tour is made for all different types of chocolate tastebuds. At Raaka Chocolate and Fine & Raw, sample chocolate that starts out as a minimally-processed cocoa bean. Both places are even offering behind-the-scenes tours of the “bean-to-bar” process.

Favorite chocolatiers like Li-Lac Chocolates, JoMart and Liddabit Sweets offer up unique chocolate-covered creations, including 3D-art and chocolate covered fruit and snacks. And head to Cacao Market and Chocolate Works for more traditional chocolate gifts, like truffles and heart-shaped candies. Be sure to personalize your chocolate gifts with pretty wrapping, prints and sweet messages.
