when it comes to chocolate, these people got it down, although I think their flavor experiments go a little too far. I just wanted some simple caramels. The most down to earth thing I could find was the coffee caramel. I spent 27 bucks on a 12 pack of chocolates consisting of things I mostly ended up not liking. I wish I just bought a straight bar of organic milk chocolate. I just want to taste the chocolatey goodness! I’m sure the flavor combos are great for some, but I don’t like to get too experimental with chocolate. Honey and saffron on my chocolate covered caramel isn’t exciting. Sometimes I think people get too experiment-happy and wind up creating bogus work and then have the nerve to call it gourmet and charge an arm and a leg for it. Salt on my caramels? no thanks. Earl grey caramels? no… I shoulda just got the damn chocolate bar. Oh well. Next visit to Seattle I’m doing Theo right.over 2 years ago

Winners of Most Outstanding Chocolates at the Fancy Food awards in Manhattan, NYCover 5 years ago
I did the factory tour earlier today. It’s worth the price of admission certainly, especially if you don’t really know how chocolate is made. Yup, they offer free samples of not only their bars but their truffles as well. Definitely for chocolate lovers.
Also, hardcore vegans can be rest assured… each type of bar, milk or dark, is made in batches for each type.. and cleaned thoroughly before the next type… so you won’t get a little milk in your dark chocolate bar if that’s an issue for you.over 7 years ago
They’re all filled up for the 1 and 3pm tours this Saturday.
I was able to RSVP for Sunday at 1pm. They have openings for then, and Sunday at 3pm as well.
E-mail is an option for making a reservation, but if you do it on the phone, you’ll RSVP quicker than via e-mail. Although, they seem to have one phone line, and it’s almost always busy. So, if you get a busy signal, try and try again.
