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”!

I bought a discount coupon for this event. What could be better than wine and chocolate? The people were outstanding....I really went for the chocolate but there wasn't that much chocolate offered, it was more wine. There were several wines to try and about 5 chocolates. I didn't like any of the wines they offered so my husband got double... More

I just love this spot. If you need a wine fix with Chocolate or without, this is the place. The staff could not be friendlier and the wines are out of this world. If you're looking for unusual delicious wines this is the place. I always buy a wine when I am here. And the chocolates are fabulous. If you... More

With friends stopped into the Chocolate Box and decided to do a wine tasting and chocolate pairing. WOW! The servers were knowledgeable and helpful. A pairing of 3 wines, one white and two red with their gourmet chocolates was great. No rushing, Sipping. Talking. Wines superb! Chocolates..........! Would go again and recommend it to anyone.

Loved the wine selection at this location! The staff listened to what we wanted and found us two bottles (a 2011 and 2012) for a fun vertical tasting!

My husband and I just wandered in to look around. We decided to try 3 local wines which were paired with handmade chocolates. Chris did an excellent job of explaining some details of the local wine industry and was very enthusiastic! We will definitely stop in again, and possibly look into what else is offered here the next time we... More

I attended a chocolate truffle making class and it was fun and informative. I will never look at chocolate the same and just any old chocolate won't do anymore. Highly recommend taking a class but at least visit the store while in the area.

We booked the Tour de Chocolate through this company. The day we were to go, the driver was sick, so we never got to do the Theo factory tour part, but the hosts at the Chocolate Box went out of their way to make it up to us. Had a great presentation on the history of the cacao bean and... More

I went on the Tour de Chocolate and really enjoyed it. The Tour de Chocolate has three parts: It starts with a talk about cocoa and the origins of chocolate from fruit to bean, then off to Theo Chocolate for a tour of our own bean-to-bar chocolate factory, and finally a hands on segment where you make your own chocolate...
