Each event includes a blind tasting of different chocolates and challenges your senses to discover which flavors you like the best. We often pair chocolate with drinks such as dessert wine, beer, tequila, or whiskey.
We will guide you through the tasting, answering questions you didn’t even know you had, about process, terroir, varietal and maker style. You thought wine was complex? Wait until you taste some of the Happy Chocolates curated by The Chocolate Garage™!
You will be tasting from among our collection of over 175 of the most delicious and happiest bars available! Amedei, Askinosie, Akesson, Bar au Chocolat, Bonnat, Dandelion, Dick Taylor, Domori, Francois Pralus, Fresco, Fruition, Grenada, Madre, Momotombo, Pacari, Patric, Rogue, Soma and Woodblock are just a few of the outstanding craft makers we feature from the Americas, Europe, and beyond.
Team buildings, holiday parties and corporate events; we specialize in creating fun ways to engage colleagues as you learn about chocolate together. Start with the theory of flavor and taste then practice, practice, practice tasting until everyone discovers a favorite.

"The combination of information and tasting at The Chocolate Garage was far beyond my expectations. Sunita is knowledgeable, interesting, and fun-loving. I'd go back in an instant."
"Sunita is a top-notch, progressive, socially responsible entrepreneur. Our team did a team offsite at the Chocolate Garage, where Sunita provided an incredibly fun and profound experience for us. Her mission to educate the world on chocolate and to foster support for "Happy Chocolate" is commendable, and she's done a great job of setting up the Chocolate Garage as a place to learn, socialize, explore, and best of all: taste absolutely great chocolate from the world's best chocolate makers. I highly recommend her work, her business, and sincerely hope she fulfills her vision for using chocolate as a means of enabling positive social change."
"The accolades continue months later from my diverse guests at Sunita's Chocolate Tasting Party. It's a home run when you can bring delight to an assembled group of women, from successful entrepreneurs, directors on public boards, members of Harvard faculty, high tech C-suite, international commerce and other backgrounds right up to a socialite, and have them all feeling enriched and having an experience like they have never had before.
Sunita's knowledge, charm and ability and ability to communicate on both a deep and tasty level about the universal favorite food was a high for all and created a lasting memory.
Thank you for making the event such a success!"
“The Chocolate Garage specializes in “Happy” artisan chocolates. I hired Sunita to come out for a holiday event for a large group of design engineers, and boy, were my engineers happy about the chocolate tasting! Sunita is personable and incredibly knowledgeable about the products she carries. She picked a very appropriate sampler for my group; educating us on the history, science and ethical production of chocolate while we tasted an assortment of different chocolate blends from different geographical origins. Her command of the group’s attention with her professional expertise and personal enthusiasm really impressed me. Without hesitation, I’d recommend Sunita/Chocolate Garage to event planners. I’m sure that a Chocolate Garage artisanal Happy Chocolates tasting will make your event a sweet success.” December 6, 2011
