Guittard Chocolate Co. Petite Non Pareils Mints

$ 3.99

In the mid 1800s, Etienne Guittard ventured from Tournus, France to the Barbary Coast in hopes of striking it rich during the California Gold Rush. He brought delicious chocolate from his uncle's factory to trade for mining supplies but soon discovered that wealthy miners were willing to pay a premium for his treat. Armed with the knowledge that there was another kind of "gold", he sailed back to France to finesse his craft and in 1868 returned to San Francisco and opened Guittard Chocolate on Sansome Street. In addition to chocolate, Etienne also sold coffee, tea and spices.
