This is a fun place to go buy and sample Ghirardelli's famous chocolates. You can buy a variety of flavors and products pre-packaged and in bulk. The neighborhood smells like...mmmmm...chocolate!!

I found better pricing options at Ross, TJMaxx. Of course not the entire selection. Can't fault the chocolate. It is excellent. The store front? Just ok.

I can’t say enough about this factory store. The staff is so friendly, they offer a free sample upon entering and the prices can’t be beat. I can’t wait to return!

Must stop. Try their hot chocolate or a sundae. Both are rich and heavenly. Gift shop has many offerings of different flavors of chocolate. Pick and choose or make your own gift basket.
