Theo Chocolate

Theo Showroom
Fremont’s own chocolate factory: Theo Chocolate. What a delight to visit their showroom in the old Trollyman Pub (used to be owned by Redhook). Some would be sorry about the beer company moving out, but when a chocolate factory is the new tenant, it’s sooo-long alcohol and hello theobroma. The old pub is now the chocolate maker’s showroom. You can walk in and sample chocolate until you are literally sick. The chocolate is arranged on granite slaps before each product. My favorite is the 3400 Phinney Chocolate bar called the Bread and Chocolate Dark Chocolate: “featuring dark chocolate with buttery, toasted artisan breadcrumbs and the perfect amount of salt.” The line is named 3400 Phinney because that’s the address of the factory.

If you want, you can take a factory tour.
