Dandelion Chocolate: Factory Tour & Guided Tasting | SF
Mmmm… chocolate! Four days a week, Dandelion Chocolates offer $5 factory tours (with tastings) and they’ll send you off with a hot chocolate gift card so you can end your experience on an extra chocolatey note. These tours can book up months in advance (especially for the Saturday tours), so we recommend trying to book as early as possible and aim for a Wednesday or Thursday.
On the tour, you’ll taste cacao as it is being processed, from cocoa beans to liquid chocolate, and they’ll guide you through a tasting of their single origin bars.
They host their factory tours Wednesdays – Saturdays from 6:10-6:50 pm. Tours are limited to 8 guests. The production team will be off of their factory floor by 6 pm, so they will show videos of machinery that isn’t running during the tour. You will be walking around the factory, so footwear with closed toes is required.
Please allow yourself plenty of time for parking, as it can be a challenge.
