Ghirardelli soda fountain.

So are the sundaes as heavenly as they sound? Which is the best? Was it worth the visit?

If you like peanut butter / chocolate - Gold Rush. Its delicious gooey indulgence. We're on the DxDP so will be on food overload on our next trip, but still trying to find a way to work it in to the schedule... Highly recommended

It'd DTD in the market place end. It's so good, hoping I can get some more of my favourite spiced pumpkin chocolates when we are there in October. They only take them out for a limited time.

1) That is the problem with some thoughts.
2) They are simply misstated
3) The sentence should read,
. . . Totally justifies having dessert AS dinner.

I have never been there, but I am planning it during our trip this summer. I have read that the sundaes cost something like $8 each, but they have a huge deluxe 8 scoop sundae that the whole family can share for $25. Has anyone tried it?

Yes, they are. My favorite are any of the "Intense Dark" hot fudge sundaes. There's the Espresso Escape (espresso ice cream), Midnight Reverie (chocolate ice cream) and the Mint Bliss (mint ice cream and chocolate ice cream... my favorite).

Sooooo good! I mean, look at all that hot fudge!
