Salon du Chocolat?

I'll be in Paris during the Salon du Chocolat this year - - and wondering if any of you have attended in the past? Is it a fun experience or is it too crowded to get to taste anything? Sounds like it might be an interesting way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and I would love some personal input here.

Thank you.

  1. It is indeed an opportunity to sample some of the top chocolatiers. As you anticipate, it is crowded. You will need patience to wait in queues at the most interesting tables. It is not a grab-and-go tasting.

    We stopped going not because of crowds but because we found that several hours of chocolate sampling was too rich and intense an experience for us.
