Great chocolate and learned a bunch about their process. I wish we could walk into the actual factory. Our guide was good.

Came in for a one hour tour and was not disappointed! Employees are very thorough and the manufacturing facility is very cool to see. Also, lots of free chocolate to taste! Would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed my tour today. Our tour guide was really energetic and knowledgeable about the process and history of the company. Loved the anecdote about how what would otherwise be considered "waste" parts of chocolate production (the outer shells) are given or sold to other...More

Three generations of our family celebrated part of Mother’s Day with a tour and shopping spree at Taza Chocolate and it was great fun! None of the processing was going on a Sunday so probably a weekday would have been more interesting but hearing about...More
