Chicago Chocolate Tour Take Three!

It may seem like I'm a little obsessed...okay, maybe I am, but seriously, I love going down to the city, I love chocolate, I love the Chicago Chocolate Tours! This time I treated my friend Alison to a Chicago Chocolate Tour for her birthday.

We went on Tuesday when it was snowing a ton so it took us a while to get down to the city, but we made it just in time to meet our tour in Macy's. This time we did the downtown loop tour, which is the same tour I did with Kathy in March, except we got to go to the Christkindl Market in Daley Plaza which was really cool! It felt Christmas-y to be downtown when it was snowing and there were people and lights and music everywhere. I loved every second of it. I will definitely go down again next year to visit Macy's and then go to the Christkindl Market.

The giant, heavy clocks outside of Marshall Field's (sigh, now Macy's)
The big Christmas tree in Daley Plaza. I liked it even though it was just one big tree this year instead of a million little ones put together. This one had character!
Alison and I at the Christkindl Market! Like my new hat? I couldn't resist...and I needed a hat...it was snowing people!
The wall of chocolate at Hannah's Bretzels!

These pictures are great! I am so glad to see that you and Alison still keep in touch and get together just like my two friends from Guate. I am sure it was a lot of fun.

Looks like fun! I have been wanting to do one since we moved here and I saw the tour guides with their signs... Chocolate? Can't pass that up!

Very fun! I just bought one of those Chocolate Tours for Adam and I on a Groupon. I don't really know what to expect, but he loves chocolate! Also, it is so fun to go downtown to see everything at Macy's and the Christkindl market! You should make it a holiday tradition too!

I'm so bummed that I never went on a Chocolate Tour while living in Chicago. I definitely missed out.

That is too funny what your wrote on my Pizza Pops post. You know what's ironic? I must have had some eye strain 'cause I thought your blog "Chicks with Books" said "Chicks with Boobs". Serious. I laughed out loud because we both had our eyes play tricks on us this week. Ha!
Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family! :)
