The history and culture surrounding chocolate has become an art-form that is the epitome of refinement and the height of luxury. Learning to taste chocolate and appreciate its complexity requires a finesse that comes with years of practice.
This tour is a chance to discover some of Brisbane’s best chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft. You’ll learn about how chocolate is produced, from a bean on the cacao tree through to the hands of the chocolate makers; and the terminology used by industry experts to describe the taste, smell, and forms of chocolate.
You’ll be able to sample the chocolates at each venue you visit, where you will also learn the elements of a proper chocolate tasting; the different cacao percentages, and how they affect the taste. Discounts on purchases are also available at a number of the venues.
You will visit four venues around the city, with a break in between. There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it. The tour price includes the sit-down break, and all chocolate tastings on the day. This tour is not gluten or dairy free.
If you’re looking for a few hours of fun on the weekend, to meet new people, and discover new things about your city, Foodi tours will show you where to start.

Had a great time meeting the rest of the group, was very enjoyable and not to far to walk from each shop. David was a great tour guide; would highly recommend and am looking forward to experinceing other tours on offer. 5/5 by Kate McDonald 22-5-2017
Very good, Dave explained everything very well. I especially enjoyed out visit to the Chocolate Moments shop, so many beautiful chocolates it was difficult to choose which ones to buy. There was a good mx of venues, we tried dippping chocolate with churros, was able to buy a hot drink here. Then it was tasting and then drinking different chocs at other venues. Then last, to another Chocolate Moments outlet to try and buy if we had missed one of the chocolates at their first shop. Not too far to walk and at a comfortable pace. I certainly have a taste for really good chocolate now. All very informative. 4/5 by Christine Wells 21-5-2017

Great way to spend a Saturday morning. David, the tour leader was excellent.
