Valentine’s Day and chocolate — they go together well, don’t they? A few months back, my husband and I found a fun (and tasty!) date idea; we took the Chuao Chocolatier “Joy Factory Tour” in Carlsbad, CA. Because we enjoyed it so much, I thought you might like the chance to experience it, too! Read all about our amazing day at Chuao here.
A “Joy Factory Tour” lasts a little over an hour, and includes chocolate tasting, education about chocolate & Master Chef Michael Antonorsi (he’s an interesting man!), plus an actual walk-through of the chocolate factory where all the chocolates are made.

I love their chocolate!
That’s definitely a good reason!
Visiting a chocolate factory would be nirvana for a chocoholic.
Oh so true!
Chocolate makes me happy!!!!
I would love to bring my husband on this tour so I could pick out my Valentine’s gift in person! 🙂
That’s clever, Joanne!
I always wanted to go to wonkas candy factory. I think this might be almost a great!!
This sounds AMAZING!! Def Lucy and Ethel vibes in a chocolate factory!
How exciting! Hit enter too soon!
I would love to take the tour because I recently enrolled in a chocolate making class where I will learn about tempering and making chocolate bonbons and how to decorate and everything! I’m very excited to be taking this class for my birthday and I’d love any excuse to go to California as Michigan is currently 10 degrees out side!
You would definitely love it in southern California right now!
I’m a huge fan of chocolate (and so is my girth) so visiting a factory would be a dream come true for me. I’m glad you and your husband had fun.
All chocolate tours should include the word joy 🙂 Not near where I live so good luck to the ones entering!
I want to take this tour because CHOCOLATE!!! Nuff said, amiright?! hehe… nice to find your blog, looking forward to following! <3
I would looooove to do this. I have a horrible sweet tooth, but it would also be a fun date night or even a fun mother-daughter date 🙂
What a fun giveaway! The chocolates look so tasty. Wish I lived close so I could enter. 😉
