Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14, 2013, and we'll offer a chocolate tour that day at 12:45 pm which will run until 2:30 pm! Chocolate is romantic any day of the year, and on Valentine's Day in addition to sampling extra special treats for the season, you'll learn facts about why people have linked chocolate and romance throughout history and which famous royals believed in chocolate's aphrodisiac powers! $40 per person for the Philadelphia Chocolate Tour (www.philadelphiachocolatetours.com/tours-and-schedules/).

4. Propose marriage on a Philadelphia Chocolate Tour
We customize the tour for the couple, and this could range from having us pick up the ring in advance and tuck it under a specially marked truffle on a silver tray, to having a flash mob appear and sing the couple's favorite song before he pops the question! Once the couple is engaged we can take care of the bachelorette party with a chocolate tour! Engagement tours are $40 per person for a public tour, or $120 per couple for a private tour, plus any extras that are selected, such as singers or flowers. And, the couple can take a free tour with us every year to celebrate their anniversary!
