Fall’s in full swing. The leaves have changed, the weather’s getting cooler, and pumpkin-spice has been infused into everything from lattes to deodorants (Someone, please stop this madness). I have found that few places are more beautiful than Park City during autumn. One day, as I was looking for a warm drink and coffee alternative to enjoy while on a walk, Yelp led me to Ritual Chocolate Factory. Don’t let the word “factory” fool you, this place is small, cozy, and owned by locals. They pride themselves in their knowledge of chocolate beans and ability to bring out its true flavor profile without the overwhelming sweetness that is so common nowadays.
Before you pick your poison, try out all the free samples against the wall. The workers there are sweet and friendly and will encourage you to try all the flavors. When you’re done, you can pick your favorite and have it melted and blended into one of the many drink options they have available. So delicious! The bars are a little pricey, so I went with the sipping chocolate, which I’m pretty sure is just straight-up melted chocolate magic in a pretty cup. If you want to make a day out of it, check out their website for their factory tour times. One fun idea is getting a hot drink to go and taking the short drive to downtown to enjoy it. Either way, stop by this little gem for all your chocoholic needs 🙂
Did that last picture of the melted chocolate being poured into a cup make your heart beat a little faster? Yeah, me too. I can tell we’re going to be friends.
Happy fall y’all,
