3. Taza Chocolate


This stone ground, organic chocolate is made nearby in Somerville and is the first U.S. chocolate maker to establish a third-party certified Direct Trade Cacao Certification program. For just $5, you can tour their factory and store and eat more than $5 worth of samples.

4. Sam Adams


In April 1985, Samuel Adams Boston Lager made its debut in about 25 bars and restaurants in Boston, and by 1988, the company was able to sell 36,000 barrels from coast to coast. Samuel Adams beers are now available in all 50 states and more than 20 foreign countries. Also, it cannot be ignored that Brewery tours in Jamaica Plain are FREE and include samples...cheers to that!

5. Harpoon Brewery


The brewery, surrounded by fish companies on the docks of South Boston Seaport District, offers tours for $5 that involve drinking as much as you want/can for 20 minutes in their 'tasting room.' Also, while you wait for your tour to begin, order one of their famous pretzels in their new Beer Hall.

8. Baked Beans


It's called Beantown for a reason. The Pilgrims at Plymouth Colony learned these recipes in the early 1620s. Years later, molasses was added, creating Boston Baked Beans. The dish was traditionally cooked on Saturdays and left in the brick ovens overnight. Recipe here
