Theo Chocolate has a fantastic tour, that is both educational and tasty. It may well be the only place around that manufactures chocolate from the bean to the bar. They are very innovative in their flavors of their bars as well as their confections. Located in the old Fremont transit building, later to be the starting point of Redhook brewery,... More

This is a local chocolate making company and they have a factory on site. Tours offered throughout the day. We stopped here as part of the Fremont walking tour. We were pleasantly surprised! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. There are ample chocolate samples - free! Although the line is sold in Whole Foods, they have some seasonal and exclusive... More

Visited with a group of friends (Age 9 - 55), and had a fantastic tour leader, Aaron. Shown the ins and outs of the chocolate making business, right from the farmer to the shop. Everything was explained and illustrated in a way that didn't make you feel like time was going slowly. Yummy tasters too. If you're interested in chocolate... More

We went for the tour. Learnt a lot about various types of chocolates and how it is made. Got to sample a few. It is worth learning about what goes into making chocolate. Their chocolates are out of this world.

Local friends recommended this and we were not disappointed. We did the tour which was very enjoyable as we were first instructed in different varieties of cacao - including taste testing. We were then walked through the production facilities. We were there on a weekend so we missed the actual operation but it was still interesting. After the tour we... More

We've visited chocolate museums in Barcelona and in Orange County, CA, and we've visited a chocolate factory in Las Vegas, but this was even better. This tour provided an overview of how chocolate is produced, but also showed precisely how it is made into familiar confections and bars. It also covered what fair trade means, and how fair trade protects... More

A visit to Theo is a true sensory experience. The smells of chocolate decadence greets you as soon as you step inside the building. There are lots of tasting opportunities for the wide variety of bars, all of which are top quality. A splurge for a truffle or peanut butter cup is soo worthwhile. So is the factory tour, but...

Our whole experience at Theo was great. Everyone working and interacting with us was very friendly and clearly very passionate about what they do. The tour started off with a 20 minute long presentation about where chocolate comes from and how Theo is staying committed to being 100% fair trade for life. There are also multiple chocolate samples during the... More

Did you know there is a chocolate factory in Fremont? Theo Chocolate offers $10 tours where you can see the process of making chocolate. If you go on a weekday you can actual see the work happening; on a Sunday you just hear about it. Our guide Josh was engaging and the samples were delicious. At the end of the... More

We really enjoyed learning about this amazing chocolate company. Very "green" and love the Free Trade aspect to their production. I learned a lot about the process of growing, harvesting and processing cocoa beans... something I knew nothing about even though I eat chocolate every day! :) I heartily recommend this to all and especially to chocolate lovers!!
