Chocolate Time Travel
Visiting Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Co is like taking a step back in time to one of those old-school confectioneries where you can watch as they create small-batch chocolates. After enjoying the show, pick out your favorite chocolates and either lose yourself (in the best way) in their deliciousness or gift them to a loved one back home. The chocolate Olive and Sinclair whip up is out of this world, and their packaging is reminiscent of a bygone era where scoring a single candy bar could make your entire week.
