Wharton Alum in a Candy Shop -- A Chocolate Tasting in San Francisco!

Join the Wharton Club and entrepreneur Jack Epstein of Chocolate Covered for a members-only look at a growing global niche industry and sample a wide variety of chocolates!

Have you noticed that niche categories around gourmet and healthy fine chocolate are marketing their way to you and me? Join us after work on Wednesday, November 11th in the heart of Noe Valley along with your fellow Wharton alumni for a special Wharton Club members-only chocolate tasting! We'll have the opportunity to taste a wide variety of samples and learn about major categories of chocolate that include:

  • High cocoa content
  • Single origins
  • Exotic spices
  • High quality milk chocolate
  • Micro roasteries

The world of chocolate is truly a global industry evolving with consumers changing tastes, and you are going to be astonished at the sheer variety of chocolates offered at this shop . . . and even happier at the variety of chocolates that our host is going to have us sample! Not only will we get to taste a pre-planned selection of chocolates, but if there's something that catches our eye on the shelves, we'll be doing some tasting and exploring there, too!

What is it about chocolate that can provoke such passion, such intensity, such love? Make the acquaintance of Jack Epstein, a true San Francisco chocolate aficionado and find out.
