    What we're about

    Chocolate is called the food of the gods for good reason. This club is dedicated to celebrating it in all its forms. We will meet in various locations around Boston, Cambridge, and environs (T-accessible as often as possible) to sample fine dark and milk chocolate. We'll focus on only the best stuff (sorry, Hershey, you're not invited to this party). We'll taste, share, learn, and enjoy together. Sound like fun? Please join us!

    ______________________________________________________________

    The fine print: This group is inclusive and accepting of all chocolate lovers, but young children might not find us much fun. We hope that you will consider bringing a friend or two so that we can spread our appreciation for the most magical of treats.

    We're focused on fine, tasting chocolate. That means that we're most interested in chocolate made with beans sourced directly by the chocolatier, and we're interested in the best quality chocolate.

    NO SELLING, please. Some members have associations with various chocolate organizations and producers. That's great. We love that. But, please, no selling or recruiting at meetings. Let's keep the focus where it belongs: on tasting. However, if your organization has an event that might be of interest to our members, don't hesitate to message me.
