Boston Massachusetts visitors can indulge their chocolate cravings on The Old Town Trolley Boston Chocolate Tour.

Operating every Saturday between mid-January and late April, the fully-narrated, three-hour excursion features chocolate trivia and decadent desserts.

Gourmet chocolate

At the award-winning Top of The Hub Restaurant, 52 floors above the city, chocoholics indulge in a sublime Chocolate Surprise (a different creation every week) served against a panoramic view of the city. At the historic Omni Parker House Hotel, chocolate-lovers enjoy Boston Cream Pie, a classic favorite invented in the hotel's kitchen. The last stop is at The Langham Hotel Boston's Chocolate Bar Buffet for more than 25 tempting, all-you-can-eat chocolate desserts. Additional chocolate treats are served on the Trolley Tour.

History of chocolate

Massachusetts has a rich chocolate history: Boston apothecaries sold chocolate in the mid-1700's based on the belief that it was beneficial to health. The first chocolate factory in the U.S. was located in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Ruth Wakefield invented Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies at The Tollhouse Restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts. Chocolate used in Oreo cookies is manufactured in Mansfield, Massachusetts.

Advance reservations for the Boston Chocolate Tour are required.
