They offer free tours here with complimentary chocolate samples. It's quite interesting to learn about the majors parts of the chocolate process and what makes their chocolates different than Hershey's and other chocolatiers. You get to see their grinding and processing equipment and all of the cacao boxes from different countries around the world. Beware of the 99% cacao bar.

Scharffen Berger Chocolate is very good. It is a higher end chocolate sold here, at a couple of their own stores, and at high end grocery stores. I highly recommend coming here to view the tour and to try the chocolate. They have these tiny squares that are $.50 each. It is well worth the price!

The Scharffen Berger factory tour is very well done. Before the tour the guests are given a history of chocolate making. Samples of cocoa beans in different states of processing are handed out to illustrate the points being made.

Reservations are required and can be done online. Make sure you tour the factory while it is operating. We went on a Saturday afternoon and got to see the machines but the line wasn't operating.

PROS: Excellent tour. You go home smelling like a big chocolate bar!
CONS:
