Love fine chocolates? In other words, are you a living breathing human? Come join us on the Twin Cities’ only Mother’s Day chocolate tour! You will enjoy the best chocolate delicacies the Twin Cities has to offer, all while being chauffeured around in a warm cozy coach bus.
The tour will be filled with sweets from local chocolatiers while learning the history behind chocolate, the process and production, how to taste, and you’ll sample the newest craze—the cacao nib.
We’ll dive right into all kinds of chocolate starting with sampling Potion #9 Chocolate Sauce, sipping chocolate and chocolate with a variety of cacao percentages. When you leave, you’ll depart with a select truffle of your choice. This is a great location to grab a coffee, latte or tea—and yes, to answer your inevitable question, they have chocolate tea.
Next up is gooey turtles and their signature Chicago Mix Popcorn at a local favorite since 1932 that may have ties from the St. Paul mob. Their chocolate and caramel family recipe can be found in a large selection of chocolates from chocolate covered cherries to sponge chocolate.
Straight from the rooftops of St. Paul, this local beekeeping chocolatier features distinctive honey bon-bons. Their exquisite honey is encased in award-winning 100% chocolate and then hand burnished with 23K edible gold leaf. Each bon-bon is a brilliant union of elegance and raw nature.
We’ll end the tour at the “best truffles in the country, possibly the world!” according to Oprah. Oprah! If you can’t trust her endorsement, then we don’t know how to help you. Learn more about this sweet event at tastetwincities.com/public-tours/#mothersdaychocolatetour
