Chocolate Tour of Chicago

Chocolate Tour of Chicago

Product Review (submitted on February 26, 2016):
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our tour ably guided by Kerri. She not only provided an eye opening history of chocolate but introduced us to lesser known local brands while weaving in Chicago history and architecture at the same time. We took the downtown loop tour which centered on the iconic Marshall Fields / Macy's building where we discovered Smith and Donovan confections among others. We met Valerie, the tour owner, who provided her own advice and suggestions. We then walked over to a french patisserie, Toni's, the new Fanny May store artisanal line, and ended up at Argo Tea. Each establishment had samples of unique chocolate confections to try. Some of our family's favorites were the chocolate macaron at Toni's and the white chocolate mint tea at Argo. We had lunch before the 2 hour tour which started at 12:45 pm, and of course, skipped dessert!
