Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop

Ghiradelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop

Of course, when it comes to some of the best candy in Hollywood, we can’t forget Ghirardelli, producer of some of the finest chocolates in the world. Located inside the magical, colorful Disney Studio Store, this chocolate shop also offers the retro experience of getting a cold drink from their old-fashioned soda fountain.

It was 1817 when Domenico Ghirardelli was born; he first was introduced to the chocolate and confectionary world when he began apprenticing for a local candy maker. In 1849, he sailed to America and opened a general store in Stockton, California, then in 1852 he opened his first candy shop in San Francisco, called Ghirardely & Girard, which would become the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company that we know today.
