Ghirardelli Soda Fountain Discontinues Free Samples

Ghirardelli Free Samples

Say it ain’t so!  Ghirardelli Chocolate has ceased distribution of its free samples at all of its stores, including the Soda Fountain at Disney Springs Marketplace.

Visitors at various locations throughout the country have been reporting the lack of samples being handed out over the past few weeks.  Now that change has been implemented at the store in Disney Springs as well.

Ghirardelli Free Samples

Normally visitors were greeted by a server offering an array of free sample squares to anyone who passed by.  Now, guests are allowed to request a sample of something at the counter.  However, there are no longer samples being handed out at the door.

Many people have a vacation tradition of stopping in for their sample.  Those of us who need our chocolate fix will have to order one of the many ice-cream delights on the menu or purchase a box of their fine west-coast chocolates.

What do you think of the removal of the free samples? Let us know in the comments!

  1. They (Ghirardelli) made a BUSINESS decision! They pay RENT to the Walt Disney Company, They did this Nationwide, So WHY BLAME Disney??? I KNOW people that BRAG about getting OVER 10 pieces each Visit to Disney Springs, The GREEDY ALWAYS kill things for the “ONE AND DONE” person

  2. Probably because people took advantage, getting multiples all day long. This is why we can’t have nice things.

  3. I think horrible!! One more thing that was not in Walts original idea. We pay for everything now at disney. You are making it impossible for families to afford without going broke
