Ghirardelli Chocolate Company is partnering with San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (SFGHF) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “Hearts in San Francisco” public art project. “Hearts in San Francisco” raises money to support vital programs and initiatives at San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (The General). Ghirardelli Chocolate launched their “Hearts in San Francisco” Chocolate Bar Collection that features several of the iconic hearts on the packaging. A portion of every “Hearts in San Francisco” Chocolate Bar Collection sold is donated to San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. The ‘Hearts in San Francisco’ art initiative is a part of SFGHF’s Hearts fundraising events, which includes the Heroes & Hearts Luncheon and Hearts After Dark party.

At a foot tall, each “Hearts in San Francisco” Chocolate Bar Collection includes four individually wrapped Ghirardelli Bars: Milk & Caramel, Dark & Sea Salt Caramel, Dark & Caramel and Toffee Crunch:

Milk & Caramel – Buttery caramel soft filling surrounded by rich milk chocolate.

Dark & Caramel – Buttery caramel soft filling surrounded by intense 60% cacao dark chocolate.

Dark & Sea Salt Caramel – Luscious buttery caramel enhanced by a touch of savory sea salt, all surrounded by intense velvety chocolate.

Toffee Crunch –Creamy, slow-melting milk chocolate and decadent chocolate filling blended with crunchy toffee bits.

In addition to the “Hearts in San Francisco” limited edition chocolate bar, Ghirardelli is offering 10% off chocolate purchases or $1 off sundaes when visitors show a photo of themselves with a “Hearts in San Francisco” sculpture at any Ghirardelli Chocolate location from Saturday, February 1 through Friday, February 14.  The hearts can be seen all around San Francisco, and the most recognizable is Tony Bennett’s heart titled, “America’s Greatest City By the Bay” which resides permanently at the corners of Powell and Post Streets in San Francisco’s Union Square.
