The world's first organic and fair trade chocolate Aug 25, 2011
On this tour, you will learn a lot about how chocolate is made, what Theo can do with chocolate, and about organic and fair trade. Tours last about an hour, and about half that time you'll be sitting in a room listening to a tour guide talk while tasting samples. The other half will be spent in the factory itself (which is kept uncomfortably warm to keep the chocolate melted) seeing how it's made. The factory part itself is pretty forgettable, but you'll get a chance to see the confection room which is a lot more interesting (and air conditioned). Once in the gift shop you can sample all the chocolates you didn't get to try on the tour, and you get 10% off certain items in the store.

Theo Chocolate Factory Jul 08, 2009
Theo Chocolate is the only organic, fair trade chocolate factory in the USA, and it's located in Seattle, WA! For just $6 you can take a tour and get tons of delicious samples, but you'll have to reserve a spot because their tours are very popular.

They tell you all about the process of turning raw cocoa beans into chocolate, and show you all the machienes they use. This was certainly interesting, but my favorite part about the tour were the smells. The entire factory, of course, smelled like chocolate. I was completely surrounded by this warm, comforting scent, and I couldn't stop smiling. And then there were the samples. So dark and sweet and chocolatey and delicious...

If you are not in Seattle, but would still like to experience the bliss that is Theo Chocolate, fear not! Many stores across the US sell their chocolate, and you can look for the nearest place to you on the website. Enjoy!
