Found their shop on Etsy, then gave shop a call.. a special friend needed special care this week. Made my selections, gave my card info, packaged and out that day.. great follow-up w/ email for status and tracking.

Oh, La La! We walked into the divine chocolate emporium today - heavenly! My pals had just enjoyed ( adored) a chocolate making class on Zoom! They were all so enthusiastic…wildly so..so we drove to North Beach …actually got street parking (miracle) and entered heaven…who Knew!? So many decadent flavors of fudge and an array of sweets.
Could not resist: had to buy the state of California in chocolate! And a few various yummy fudges…yes, plural.
Mike Z, the charming owner is a delight! Great guy.
Eureka!

This is the best fudge I have ever had in my life. I have walked by this shop many times and just thought they sold taffy. While watching a re-broadcast of this local story:
“Get world-famous, 7-layer fudge at San Francisco sweet spot Z. Cioccolato“ I made an order on a Sunday, and it was in hand by Tuesday.

The news story filmed employees as they made small batches of the many fudge flavors. The kicker was when the owner talked about the 2-day delivery. I bought a 6 piece order of fudge.
I ordered the seven layers upon layers of peanut butter fudge, Oreo crisp, caramel, marshmallow. It tastes like a cross between peanut butter pie and s'mores. The flavors are so fresh, delicious, and unique. I am still working my way through the box. I may join the fudge of the month club.

I went to Z Cioccalato, which is located in the North Beach area of San Francisco.
They offer a free piece of fudge. They have all types of candies.

I purchased a nut and cranberry snack product.

I visited here on a walking food tour. We stepped in and oh my word! Candy and treats all over. They also have ice cream and a bins in the back that have old fashioned candy.

They offer free samples. You have to try the seven layer fudge. There is nothing like it!

So fun and the owner is super nice.

This sweet shop was a stop on food tour of China Town and North Beach, and we were there to try the famous seven-layer fudge, which proved to be worthy of its billing. The flavors of each layer were distinct but combined together into a delicious whole. There are lots of other sweets to get here, but the fudge is rightfully the headliner and worth a stop.

Swear to whoever you want the staff makes this place.
When you walk in you get a healthy greeting like you have come back as a regular.
They force you to taste the best fudge ever so you got to buy.
Then to top it off you get a small bag of Carmel corn as you head out the door.
I had to go back just 'cause my wife found out we didn't get the fudge she wanted.
O my. If I lived here I would get fat.
Glad I am a state away..........or maybe not.

They offer free tastes of amazing fudge. It is so good and they have so much variety.

They also offer all the old time candy you grew up with as a kid and lots of other fun treats in the store.

You can also get ice cream!

A total gem of a place. Everyone who works here is extremely friendly and accommodating. You can taste test fudge for free, and you also get free kettle corn when you make a purchase. They're very generous and the products are quite good. I highly recommend the place. I have been multiple times and will go again.

We were walking down Columbus ave when I mentioned to my friend that I had not had any chocolate since we arrived in SF. Not a full minute later there was a sign in front of us offering free samples of fudge inside. We roamed around the delicious smelling store that had fresh confections in the front, fun novelty gifts in the middle and all your factory made candy favorites in the back. Then, nonchalantly wandered past the counter where we were offered our fudge. We each had one (both were sweet and smooth and creamy) and we were going to be on our way. But then the angel at the counter offered us another, then some caramel corn. Everything, EVERYTHING was to die for. I'm not even a caramel corn fan, but it was fresh and aromatic and the right amount of salty and sweet. So needless to say we walked out with a bag of fudge and another of caramel corn. Z. Cioccolato has easily earned my business anytime I'm back in the Bay area.
