Remember when you were a kid and mom baked a fresh pie with strawberries you had picked that summer afternoon? We dreamed up this unique chocolate bar with precisely that memory in mind, including the pie crust — http://bit.ly/1g0DxLl

We're all about taking classic flavors and adding a New American twist: milk chocolate, smooth hazelnut butter, crunchy pieces of hazelnut and just the right dash of sea salt — http://bit.ly/18pldHq

What if we turned creamy mint ice cream with chunks of dark chocolate, inside out? The result will put you in orbit — http://bit.ly/16EPODV

TCHO is New American Chocolate—a new kind of chocolate company for a new generation of chocolate lovers. 

Bringing a new way of thinking & doing to the ancient process of making chocolate, it is said that TCHO is where the Silicon Valley meets the San Francisco Bay Area foodie culture. 

Through TCHOSource, our revolutionary sourcing program, we work directly with those that grow the cacao used in each of our products. Giving farmers the tools to grow the best bean, so we can make the best chocolate.

We are obsessed with making the best chocolate, bringing innovation to every step of the process and making a better world.

We have relocated our factory to Berkeley from Pier 17 in San Francisco. Our facility is not yet open to the public - we expect to open our factory store and resume our world-famous factory tours and tasting in late April 2014.

Take the chocolate tour here. It's free and educational, and wut - free chocolate samples, too!! This place has made me a chocolate snob, and I don't mind. The chocolate is pretty pricey but is great for any chocolate lover. Great location near the water, parking kinda sucks around this area but they do have a small lot out front. Enjoy!

I went on a chocolate factory tour this Sunday and had such a blast. I learned so much about chocolate and I gained an entirely new appreciation for it. Aside from the great facts, there was also a tasting at the end of the tour where you get to sample a range of their dark chocolates and milk chocolates. They were all amazing, and it was so cool to taste the different flavor notes. I didn't realize that chocolate could taste different just based on the beans used without fruit, nuts and other ingredients being added in. Go on the tour and see for yourself!

I went on a chocolate tour with 9 of my friends and had an awesome experience. The tour guide was smart, upbeat and informative. The presentation is well done and ends with a chocolate tasting of mostly their dark chocolates. I like that the ingredients are simple. I only wish I could buy more chocolate but the prices are a bit high so I'll have to come back another time to try the Tchunky Tchotella. The nice perk of going on a tour is you get a 10% coupon to use that same day. I'll be making a TCHOlicious tart soon.

Brought a couple of friends on the tour with me last week. I'm glad I made a reservation a few weeks in advance because the store was packed when we showed up! Make a reservation, and overcompensate on the number of people you intend to bring. They don't penalize you if someone doesn't show up and will just release your spot. The tour itself was fun and informative, although I think our guide was new or something, and you get to eat tons of chocolate! The store is overpriced, but the chocolate is seriously tasty. Stick to the clearance table. Tcho chocolate is Tcho chocolate.

I passed here a thousand times before I even realized it was a chocolate factory. Now that I have found TCHO (pronounced "cho"), I wouldn't even think of frequenting that giant chocolate store just down the road a few miles. TCHO gives wonderful tours (make reservations ahead of time!) of their small but interesting factory. The best part of the tour is the chocolate tasting at the end. You get the opportunity to note the differences between chocolate flavors that come from the cocoa beans themselves, not from added flavoring. While their chocolate is much more expensive than the average Hershey's bar, their tour helps to justify the high prices by showing you the origin of the ingredients and TCHO's business practices. Definitely an unforgettable (and tasty!) experience!

BEST CHOCOLATE IN SFO!!! Enough said. Come for the tour so you can watch how they make their product. My favorite is between the Mocha or the mint chocolate with actual freeze dried ice cream. Simply Amazing.
