15th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival a Huge Success Under the Pouring Sun

Monday, September 13th, 2010

If you’re into chocolate and free swag, then the 15th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival would have been for you.

The line for a Kara’s Cupcakes mini-cupcake from their iconic truck was just insane on both days. Kara’s was the first exhibitor to run out of goods and it happened fairly quickly. Oh well.

Anyway, see the photos, and take a look at this full trip report from Garky Eats and/or Ewok1993

The wait for Kara’s might have gotten up to 15 minutes for a while there on Sunday. They had a sign denoting the flavors on the truck for part of the time anyway…

Liquid choco with Bailey’s:

And wouldn’t you just love a bangle full of mini-macaroons? Of course the macaroon is The New Cupcake, don’t you know.

See you next year!

15th Annual Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival Continues Today, Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Our 15th Annual Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival continues today until 5:00 PM.

Get all the deets about this year’s effort at Chowhound, where you’ll learn how Kara’s Cupcakes, The Cheesecake Guy, Tea-Infused Chocolates and GudFud marshmallows performed yesterday.

So, get on up there to Beach and Larkin where they’ll soon be selling tickets. The SF Romance Travel Examiner(!) hasn’t steered you wrong yet, am I right?

Imagine this says “15th Annual” and it’ll save us both some trouble:

“YOU MAY PURCHASE TICKETS AT THE EVENT AT THE CORNER OF BEACH & LARKIN STREETS BEGINNING AT NOON ON SUNDAY”

See you there.
