My son’s first visit to San Francisco would not have been complete without a visit to Ghirardelli‘s world-famous chocolate and ice cream factory.
The former chocolate factory looms over the old port.
How can anyone resist that kind of advertising?
Inside, we have all sorts of old timey machinery churning chocolate.
This all pretty much all for show but it looks cool anyway.
Yum. Vat of chocolate. And they hand out free Ghirardelli squares randomly too.
Some of the good stuff coming off the assembly line.
My son is a purist. He wanted chocolate ice cream with chocolate waffle cone.
I went for this peanut butter sundae. Vanilla ice cream, peanut butter sauce, chocolate sauce, chocolate peanut butter square. It was darn good, although not as decadent as the bacon sundae.
Classic hot fudge sundae with one scoop vanilla, one scoop chocolate.
