Chocolate Tasting Parties

Like chocolate? Enjoy a good party? Why not have a Kakao Chocolate Tasting Party!

Please note that Chocolate Tasting Party policies are in flux as we navigate the pandemic. We are limiting the maximum size at the shop to 12 people, and we require proof of vaccination for all attendees, and masks while not seated at the table. We can offer an outside option on the backlot patio of Tale to Table, just one block west of our shop, and we can also do virtual tastings online without any maximum — we can ship or deliver chocolate, or attendees can pick it up at our shop.

Bring in your group of 8 to 30 people and fulfill your chocolate dreams. We’ll tell you all about chocolate – where it comes from, how it’s made, and what makes it so good, and so good for you! Then we’ll lead you through a selection of our tasty confections, explaining how we make each one by hand with all-natural ingredients. (We’re always working on something new, so you might just get to try something no one else has had before!)

At Kakao Maplewood (7272 Manchester), we hold the Chocolate Tasting Parties at 6 p.m. when the shop closes (5 p.m. on Sundays), with a maximum of 30 people.  All parties are $15 per person. We are not currently holding chocolate tasting parties at Kakao Clayton.

These are private parties, so you can bring your own wine or other beverages, and we’ll provide the water and glasses. The parties usually last about 90 minutes, and of course you’ll be able to make purchases that evening. We require a credit card to hold your evening, and we have a very easy cancellation policy.

To schedule your party, please email If you have questions about the parties, you can call our Maplewood location at 314.645.4446 for assistance.

We regularly have sign-up Chocolate Tasting Parties for individuals, couples and smaller groups, and we also hold behind-the-scenes chocolate-making classes. Catch us on Facebook to find out when the next open party is scheduled.
