Ghirardelli opens shop in Disney California Adventure Park

20 Jun

Buy Ghiradelli Chocolate online in Australia at Moo-Lolly-Bar AustraliaChocolate lovers have an extra reason to visit the Disney California Adventure Park now that Ghirardelli has opened a Chocolate & Ice Cream Shop there.

A San Francisco institution going back to the days of the Gold Rush, Ghirardelli is best known for its delicious chocolate range though it does have a small chain of ice cream shops just outside the Bay Area.

Replacing the old tortilla factory, Ghirardelli is located in a two-story red brick building in the Pacific Wharf area of Disney California Adventure Park. Bordering the soon-to-open Cars Land, the opening of Ghirardelli significantly increases the range of sundaes available throughout the Disneyland Resort.

Currently their menu contains 15 different flavours, most coming with a choice of dark or milk chocolate fudge that is melted on the premises. Several of them have iconic San Francisco names such as the Gold Rush, a mix of vanilla ice cream with melted peanut butter and hot fudge, the Golden Gate, a delicious version of the banana split and the Haight Ashberry. A sensational strawberry cheesecake and vanilla ice cream with sliced strawberries and chocolate-covered blueberries.

It will be interesting to see how successful the store becomes.

Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival

9 Sep

Ghirardelli Square will host the 16th Annual Chocolate Festival attracting about 40,000 visitors from the Bay Area and around the world. This family-friendly event features prominent local chefs creating chocolate inventions during cooking demonstrations, live musical entertainment, children’s activities and the popular “Earthquake” Ice Cream Sundae Eating Contest. Over 30 different booths from local restaurants, bakeries and chocolate companies will provide dessert samples during the two-day event.

Ghirardelli Square hosts several signature events throughout the year to attract both local and tourist business.

Ghirardelli Square is one of the most well-known and best-loved icons of San Francisco. The enormous illuminated Ghirardelli sign and the smell of chocolate beckons over 4 million visitors per year to Ghirardelli Square.

All proceeds from the event are donated to Project Open Hand, a non-profit organization that provides food and compassion to people living HIV/AIDS, homebound and critically ill people, as well as seniors in San Francisco. For more information on Project Open Hand, visit http://www.openhand.org. In 2010 we raised over $60,000 for Project Open Hand.
