Delighted by Chocolate
This Foodi tour is for the chocoholic as well as the chocolate enthusiast. Well who isn't!
The tour begins with a tantalizing history of chocolate, which only wets the appetite for the delights to come. Romina and Rosie are both experiences guides and chocolate aficionados. They will guide you through the chocolate venues from Adelaide's East end to the iconic Beehive corner and back again.
The first stop is Chocolateria San Churro where you'll not only get to taste the amazing churro created from the secret family recipe along with the silky smooth chocolate dip, you'll also hear about the history of chocolate and the legend of San Churro himself.
After a browse through the retails shop, it's off to the next stop. More oohs and ahhs as you enter smelling the heady aroma and pass the display of chocolate creations.
They use the finest Belgian chocolate and blend it with different and interesting fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and edible flowers. The beetroot chocolate is strangely delicious and the chocolate dipped figs are to die for.
The next stop is Blackeby's Old Sweet Shop. Here you really will feel like the proverbial kid in a candy store. It's an absolute treat and the window feature is a must see.
Blackeby's Old Sweet Shop - a child's delight
Now no chocolate tour of Adelaide would be complete without a stop at the iconic Haigh's shop at Beehive Corner, so this tour will not disappoint. You'll learn about the history, have another chance to taste some fine chocolate and also receive a discount voucher to make some purchases.
Finally, you'll make your way back down Rundle Mall to Rundle Street to complete the tour quiz. The quiz is just a bit of fun and a chance to win some chocolaty prizes!
