Ghirardelli's is a great place to go for a sweet tooth craving when shopping in Chicago. Normally you are offered a chocolate square at the door just for stopping in. You can choose from rows of bags of several varieties of chocolate candies, or you can proceed to the cashier to order drinks or ice cream sundaes. You can order for dine in or to go but be aware that the seating area is very limited.
My personal favorite is the Decadent Drinking chocolate but it is not for the faint hearted. In fact when you order it, the cashier will ask you if you are familiar with the product. It's almost like sipping melted down dark chocolate; very thick, very rich. You can practically hear your arteries screaming for mercy. I had one once that I couldn't finish right away and put it in the fridge. When I got back to it, it was the consistency of pudding. A decadent indulgence to be sure.
