  4. Oh my gosh! This makes me want to hop on a plane and head to Paris right now! I LOVE chocolate! And all these decadent desserts look sooo amazing! Also, that is an interesting fact about Marie-Antionette. I think chocolate is the cure for everything 🙂

  5. A chocolate tour of Paris sounds amazing in every way … the thing I love most about these kind of tours though is the fascinating history which you learn too. I had no idea about things like Marie-Antoinette having had her medicine coated in a chocolate paste! Really fascinating to pick up little tid bits of history like that.

    • You are so right Meg, the history and the culture is as interesting as the food. This tour is incredible and absolutely worth the experience for your next trip to Paris. Glad you enjoyed the post and appreciate your comments 🙂

  6. You could spent a day in Paris at the Louvre, or Eiffel Tower, but honestly, could it be any better than treating yourself to Parisian pastries all day…I don’t think so. I would probably end up eating my weight in macaroons!

    Reply
    • The temptation to eat your weight in chocolate and macarons is incredibly “real.” One surprising effect after the tour is that we did not get a “sugar high.” That definitively speaks to the great quality of raw products. So, eat and walk off the calories in the city. Not a bad plan, don’t you think? Cheers!

  7. I always said Paris is a City I don´t need to see a second time….I guess I am wrong! I am a chocoholic! After seeing all those beautiful pictures, I feel the urge to put it back on my bucket list!

  8. Sweet idea! I go to Paris very often and this a great thing to do for my next trip there later in the year.

    Ladurée is also very popular here in London and so are other macaron places.

  9. This looks like a delicious tour! France has some seriously amazing chocolates. I’m living in Bordeaux and there are at least 100 different chocolate shops, but sadly, no chocolate tours. I want to pop up to Paris on the train though just for those wine chocolates. They sound incredible!

  10. Paris and chocolate, I’m there! The macarons are awesome; actually they look too good to eat. A foodie holiday in Paris is such a wonderful way to travel. Those photos are making me hungry.

    Reply
  11. All I can say is YUMM! I’d love to take a chocolate tour in paris and Laduree’s macaroons seem absolutely heavenly! I may have to try this on my next trip to Paris. Good tip about bringing water to clean your palette.
