“Pal-entine’s” Day is a day to celebrate friendship. And what better way to celebrate friends than with a visit to a chocolate factory? TCHO Chocolate produces award-winning, ethically-sourced, 100% plant-based artisanal chocolate. Their factory tour, regarded as one of the best chocolate tours in the world, includes a behind-the-scenes look at how TCHO's chocolate is made and how they partner with cacao producers and research institutions worldwide to create a better cacao bean—because better beans mean better chocolate. In addition to the tour, we will taste several of their innovative chocolate flavors during a guided tasting, enjoy box lunches in the tasting room by Ann’s Catering, and have time to shop in their store.
