Stop 1- Scharffen Berger in the Ferry Building. If you are ever in "the city" you should definately visit the Ferry Building, lots of great food stalls and shopping.
Stop 2- Recchiuti also in the SF Ferry Building. This was unanimously our favorite stop. Oh, the candy was sooo good. Our favorites were the candied hazelnuts, the burnt caramel and truffles. We all came home with treats from here!
Stop 3- Fog City News on Market St. It looks like a plain, old newsstand. But interestingly enough they house many specialty magazine titles from around the world. The customers said that their candy needed to represent the sophistication of their magazines. So now it is home to over 200 exotic and up-scale candy bars. There is something for everyone here. They didn't like us to take pictures in there, I am such a rebel!
A popular bar of theirs is the "bacon bar" below. We tried it, not that great to me but I don't like bacon anyway. Sweet and salty...I guess.
Stop 4- Leonida's at The Galleria (where I had my senior prom BTW). Here we sampled gourmet hot chocolate, it was really yummy! We also got a truffle of our choice.
Stop 5- Teuscher at Union Square. I am lucky to have been to a Teuscher in Zurich too. Here was one of the only places we sampled milk chocolate. We were able to try the Dom Perignon champagne truffle too.
We sampled some interesting stuff here. How about chocolate with chili peppers? Or chocolate covered peppercorns? I really liked the chocolate with orange and ginger.
Thank you for joining me on my wonderful San Francisco cholcolate walking tour! I recommend doing this for anyone who loves chocolate. Oh, I will be taking a tour like this in Paris one day!
Stay tuned for part 3 of my weekend! You will not want to miss it! Oh, by the way, if you are wondering how much I paid for my china...$20! A steal!
