This special chocolate tasting experience includes a drinking chocolate kit and a one-hour pre-recorded virtual tasting class that you can enjoy at your leisure. Gather a loved one, get cozy and learn more from a local chocolatier.

The companion video recording features Bonnie Bennett, co-owner of Kakawa Chocolate House in Salem, MA demonstrating how to set up your tasting station. She will also present a brief history of chocolate. In the video class Bonnie will elaborate on the migration of chocolate from the European continent to North America, focusing on the history of the late 1700s to the present day. She will explore the influences of the first chocolate factory in the United States, located in Massachusetts, and the spice trade influences of the region as well.

The chocolate kit will be mailed to you directly and will include two liquid drinking chocolates and some of Kakawa’s signature eating chocolates that are representative of the last three centuries of chocolate history.


We can not deliver these kits to PO Boxes. Only physical street addresses are allowed.

Supplies are limited. Last year this event sold out quickly. Purchase your chocolate tasting kit and companion video in time for the holiday season.

You must purchase your kit by Tuesday, November 28, 2023 at 5pm ET. We will ship the chocolate kit to your preferred shipping address in early December. The companion video with instructions to this chocolate class will be sent to the contact email address provided when you registered.

By RSVPing for this event, you agree to receive timely news and updates on events, films, and special offers from GBH.
