Boston is known for its wide array of culinary offerings from clam “chowda” in Quincy Market to savory Italian food in the North End. However to the surprise of many, Boston also offers some of the finest chocolatiers in the country.
The best way to experience them is by taking a “Boston Chocolate Walking Tour” – http://www.bostonchocolatewalkingtours.com/
The tour starts at Teuscher Chocolates on Newbury Street and continues with visits to five other shops in the area. Along the way, you will see the world’s largest gummy bear, sample chocolates made with Champaign, and taste bacon-chocolate concoctions made right here in Massachusetts. The highlight of the tour is a stop at North America’s only Gourmet Boutique featuring chocolate made from camel’s milk. For those with even more exotic palates, be sure to try the chocolate covered grasshoppers served at Robin’s Candy store.
No matter how familiar you may be with chocolate, the spirited tour guide will surely inspire your sweet tooth. Keep an eye out for Groupons or Living Social deals for the chocolate walking tours. It’s definitely one of the tastier ways to get out of the HBS bubble.
