Luxury Chocolate Tour in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Did you know that, when chocolate was introduced in France, drinkers were disgusted by its black aspect and acrid taste? At that time, neither sugar nor fat were added. In fact, doctors cataloged it as a medicine! Now that you know that it is good for your health, you found the perfect pretext to join this chocolate tour! In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris’s long-established and fanciest neighborhood, taste the best chocolate trends and creations of the moment! Guilt free, let us summarize your tour!
What do a coin, a lily flower and a golf ball have in common? They have all been recreated in chocolate by the chocolate firm that you will be visiting at the start of your Tour. The shop has been in the same place for 200 years. A guarantee of reliable quality!
You will then continue to the next boutique where the owner is known as the “Michelangelo of Chocolate”, because he delicately shapes statues out of chocolate and handpaints them. His shop holds its reputation as one of the best chocolate factories in the world for a reason!
In the next part of your chocolate tour in Paris, you will savor all shapes and kinds of these by tasting it as a square, a tablet, a bite or even a beverage! You will hear about this craftsman who creates chocolate dresses and accessories for true fashion shows. The very same who had the idea to literally understand the name “chocolate truffle” and to create chocolate with truffle. For sure, a curiosity!
Finally, you will discover new chocolate trends, learn the various meanings for a chocolate “bar” and know if you belong to the chocolate suckers or chocolate crunchers. These two tribes struggled for almost as long as the mists of Time to discover the legal method for chocolate tasting. Don’t worry, you have the right not to choose any side and to make the most of each!
Is this Chocolate tour okay for me if I’m vegetarian?
Yes, if you’re veggie, this tour is absolutely suitable for you. If you’re vegan, it’s not recommended because a lot of chocolate bites mix chocolate with dairy products.

Can I buy chocolate as a gift and how do I preserve it?
You can buy samples as gifts at any stop of this chocolate tour. Until you’re back home, you can keep them in the fridge of your apartment or hotel room. You might as well order chocolate from any brand’s website, most of them offer delivery to foreign countries within 48 to 72 hours.
