Give your friends a Ghirardelli Chocolate Company Gift Card for some of America’s finest chocolates. No Johnny-come-lately, Ghirardelli started in 1852 during the height of the California Gold Rush, when Domingo Ghirardelli hit the mother lode by selling luxurious chocolates to the miners. Trained as a confectioner in his native Italy, Ghirardelli had gone to South America to learn about growing cocoa beans for the chocolate business, but the lure of gold in California drew him there. Today the company he started is the gold standard for chocolate, controlling their chocolate-making process from bean to bar – and all the other treats they make.
