Description

THE CHOCOLATE TOUR OF CHICAGO

Come join your expert tour guide for a delightful stroll through some of the Chicago's most decadent dessert boutiques and chocolatiers along the Magnificent Mile on the Chocolate Tour of Chicago! The chocolate industry is a steadily growing, $50 billion-a-year worldwide business! Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and partially fermented seeds of the cacao tree. Roughly two-thirds of the entire world's cocoa is produced in West Africa, with 43% sourced from Ivory Coast. The earliest evidence of use traces to the Mokaya (Mexico and Guatemala), with evidence of chocolate beverages dating back to 1900 BC. From ancient aztec recipes to post modern takes on the dark stuff, from a World's Fair winning praline to gold infused valrhona cupcakes, The Chocolate Tour of Chicago will take you to chocolate paradise and beyond...chocoholics everywhere will love this tour!
