Bean-to-Bar: How Chocolate is Made

Do you know where chocolate comes from? And no, the answer is not the candy aisle. You can learn about the whole chocolate-making process at at Golden Gate Park, where you'll be able to try cacao fruit. "It tastes like fruit, some say lychee, and kids usually say bananas," Dandelion Chocolate employee Cynthia Jonasson said.

But don't take our word for it, try the seeds yourself, roasted beans, and the final product at this free event.

You can see the whole process from Bean to Bar at the Convservatory of Flowers this Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
