Like crayons, chocolate comes in many varieties and tastes better when unwrapped. Scribble out cocoa cravings with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a chocolate walking tour from Philadelphia Chocolate Tours (a $40 value).
Philadelphia Chocolate Tours’ guides parade patrons through the streets to the city’s top chocolatiers during each approximately three-hour trek. Groups embark from Reading Terminal Market to traipse through sweets havens such as Famous 4th Street Cookie Company, Chocolate by Mueller, Marcie Blaine Artisanal Chocolates, Teuscher Chocolates of Switzerland, and Capogiro Gelato Artisans, snagging included samples which can be used to lure stubborn roommates out of their blanket forts. Guides also weave narratives denoting the rise of cocoa-based candy and spin tales of Philadelphia past. Peruse the schedule, which offers tours that depart every day except Monday and twice daily on weekends.
