  • Fun assortment of chocolates & coffee to sample. Favorite: dark chocolate peanut butter cups. Decadent & so dark you can't help but feel so sophisticated & "adult" :P Coffee was great, my Dad who's a huge Starbucks fan bought a bag of whole coffee beans from Theo too. Lots of selection specific to the store you can only get there -- perfect for gifts!
  • For a very reasonable price you can go on a chocolate-filled tour - as in, you get to eat chocolate during most of the tour. The tour is informative, and you can try chocolate during different phases of the chocolate-making processes. The gift shop has so many free samples, so even stopping by for a moment is worthwhile. Do splurge on some of the confections: they are made so carefully and they are so good. The river and a nice grassy area is right down the street, and the giant troll statue is nearby - so grab chocolate and enjoy the sights!
