The Boston Chocolate Tour – From the Beginning

People ask me all the time: Why the Boston Chocolate Tour and why now? Here’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

A few years ago I took the New York Chocolate Tour with a great guide named Bert. I went with my 14 year old daughter as a way to bond with her before she left for camp for the summer. We had a great time, had some great chocolate and learned a lot. Chocolate was hot, literally and my daughter was hooked. It wasn’t the first culinary tour I had taken, but it was the best. Past tours included the Brooklyn Pizza Tour (with my wife and son), a North Beach and Chinatown tour in San Francisco (with my other daughter). I think you get the picture. Personally, I had found something that I personally loved to do – Walking through neighborhoods, tasting and learning and once chocolate was added, I was sold.

In the summer of 2009, I did my first Groupon, for the Boston Ghost Cruise. It was extremely successful and on that same day, a Chicago Groupon featured a chocolate tour with similar success. I knew that day in July, I would do a Boston Chocolate Tour and Groupon agreed to help me launch in the fall of 2009. My journey continued with another New York tour with Bert, a fantastic chocolate tour in Seattle with Michel, a Seattle Foodie tour, a San Francisco Chocolate Tour and the SF Chocolate Festival.

More to tell about the chocolate workshop and chocolate team building but that as they say, is a blog for another day. Come join us on a Boston Chocolate Tour. You’ll be happy you did.
