FOG CITY NEWS is a chocolate Carnegie Hall. If you are a player in the chocolate world you must play Fog City News when you visit San Francisco or you simply haven’t arrived. It is the one venue in the City that I can count on to run into any chocolate celebrities passing through town. Why is this so? It is all due to the hard work of proprietor Adam Smith. He has a discriminating palate. He knows the chocolatiers and confectioners. And they are pleased to make in store appearances to meet their fans. He also carries over 250 different kinds of premium, origin-specific chocolate bars imported from around the world. If you are seeking out an esoteric bar of chocolate that is proving difficult to locate there is a great chance that Fog City News will have it.
Their February In-Store Confectioners Appearance schedule is as follows:
Richard Donnelly of Donnelly Chocolates, Santa Cruz,
Friday, February 1, noon - 2 pm

This might be the year that you break away from the traditional red velvet heart-shaped box and dive into the fresh confections offered by these confectioners. Fog City News will receive their shipments just seven to ten days before Valentine’s Day, thereby insuring utmost freshness. Consider what a real chocolate truffle, made with fresh cream just days ago might taste like. Heaven.
