I don’t think I need to introduce this post with a quirky anecdote about how much we love chocolate here in Traveler‘s office. But clearly I got a bit excited when I found out that there’s a tour company that gives chocolate tours of the Big Apple (yum…apples and chocolate).
Chocolate Zoom Magazine offers three tasty tours of the city. Sample cacao from five European chocolatiers on the Upper East Side on the Luxury Chocolate Tour (Fridays and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m., $70). The New Cuisine Chocolate Tour (Saturdays at 3:30 or 4 p.m., Sundays at noon, $70) takes guests to five American chocolatiers in downtown Manhattan.
But the icing on the (chocolate) cake is the new Union Square Chocolate, Wine, and Culture Tour (Fridays at 3:30 p.m., $80). Guests on this three-hour tour will sample chocolate and learn how to pair it with wine, all while learning about Union Square‘s role in the history of sweet-making in the city.
And of course, there’s nothing better than being able to walk off the chocolate you just ate.
