My friends and I stopped here during a girls' trip to Seattle after a recommendation from a local guide. We were impressed by the amount of offered at the shop. The variety of chocolate bars (ginger, sea salt almond) was plenty to satisfy a sweet tooth while also reasonably priced $4. We found the boxed and bagged chocolates to be... More

This tour was fun! It was very informative about how real chocolate is made! The tours are 10 dollars and even if they are booked up you may want to stop by cause they may be able to get you in! We were about to get onto a mid day tour just by showing up and paying our money! The... More

It's super fun going straight to the source of my fave chocolate company. Lots of things you can't get at the grocery store, like chocolate coffee! Wow!

Friends and I visited the store at Theo's based on the recommendation of our optholomogist. Does he know his chocolate! Lots of blends to sample and then buy - I opted for traditional dark and the coconut chocolate. A factory tour is available, but we didn't have time for it - roamed around the funky town of Fremont taking in... More

We also loved that we go to explore the... More

About a 6-7 minute bus ride from the Space Needle area and definitely worth the visit. You can smell the store from a block away. They offer plenty of samples to help you choose some chocolate. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The store itself is in a great area in Fremont with restaurants and shops to explore.

I did the tour and then visited the gift shop. Overall, I had a good time. They guide was informative and explained how the chocolate was made from bean to processing. He provided liberal amounts of samples, which was very good. This is first chocolate plant I have visited, and it literally smells like chocolate everywhere you go. It is... More

What a great thing they have here. You will learn a lot about the chocolate process (and may never buy Hershey's again). There will be tons of samples, almost enough to cover the tour fee. And then you will overspend in the gift shop, but not feel bad about it.

Some times I feel just a little guilty when enjoying the wonderful samples at Theo's. I try to find any excuse to visit. This is some of the best chocolate made in Seattle. Great place to take friends who are visiting Seattle.

It is a great tour with plenty of chocolate samples. It lasts about an hour, hair nets included. You get a history of chocolate making and a tour of the actual factory.
