Highlights From the Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival

Pictures From San Francisco Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival 2010

Try as we might, we didn't make it to San Francisco's annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival this past weekend. Thankfully, though, we're able to enjoy cocoa victuals vicariously through tsharp25, who shared her visit in the Savory Sights group in our community.

On Saturday, my mom and I checked out the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival for the first time. We scored on the tickets, $5 each instead of $20, so that made up for the fact that it didn't quite meet our expectations.

Overall, the treats were tasty, but the crowds were out of control. So we had to plan accordingly, grabbing sweets at the booths with no lines to then enjoy while waiting in the massive lines or dividing and conquering. From chocolate stout to chocolate-stuffed marshmallows, see my roundup of what we sipped and nibbled. If you went, what did you think?
