The tour was very informative and the chocolates divine. Would definitely to this again. Great gift to give.
It was so much fun and educational. Our tour guide was awesome, sorry forgetting his name so passionate about his job and so excited to share his wealth of knowledge.
It was an awesome tour, but sadly found out the shop was closing the next day. Chocolate was amazing.
Good quality chocolate. Cute, small place but quaint and friendly workers. Love ChocXO!
Fantastic, educational and delicious! Glad we made it before they closed up shop and moved to Canada 😕
Last day for this top Chocolate spot in Irvine.Located in an odd spot for a store.But had really good Chocolate flavors.Not a huge of Chocolate but enjoyed some of their combinations like Lemon Meringue Spicy PB N J
I was unable to attend chocolate tour since today is Thierry last day open in Irvine. I was able to redeem the voucher to purchase chocolate
Really amazing tour. I’m not one to get too excited about tours in general but this one was really fun and so informative. Lots of yummy chocolate and a lot of obvious passion going into the art of making chocolate! I’ll def be looking out for ChocXO in stores!
Swiss chocolate in US?! We enjoyed every second of our tour. It started with a smooth dark chocolate tasting, and then evolved into cocoa bean to chocolate process. We tasted a very pleasant cocoa juice that we will not ever taste as it is needed for beans fermentation. Just like a good wine - cocoa beans are fermented - this process makes chocolate very healthy for us.
Excellent store/owner. Too bad the place is closing down :( It had a microbrew feel but with chocolate. See’s candy and other stores are hard to compete against and the microchocolate trend isnt full speed yet.
