Grizzly Berry

We partnered with our neighbors at TCHO to pay homage to the iconic wildlife that once roamed freely in our Golden State. It wasn’t long before we imagined bears foraging across California, which led TCHO to this blackberry-infused chocolate with a bite of blueberries. A roaring bar we call “Grizzly Berry.”

Available at our restaurants, food stands, and the Gift Shop.
