If you’re in the Big Apple, there’s a lot you can take a bite out of. For a city that doesn’t sleep, the variety is an endless stream of triggers on your taste buds you could explore an entire lifetime before you have experienced it all.
Right now though, we’ll cover some of the best chocolatiers that compete with Mast Brothers Chocolate Bars in New York City.
This chocolate outlet has a special variety. Their presentation is very similar to the Bonbon configuration we tend to know: small, round and bite size. The owner, Kee Ling Ton, is notorious for taking the tempered morsels of hand-dipped masterpieces that have a crunchy hard shell of cocoa and putting them on display in appeasing ways.
Expect the items to be filled with the best things on Earth. Imagine créme brulée, mousse, ganache and even blood orange or key lime fillings.
This shop is an all-out candy maker, so if you’re not just satisfied with a chocolate fix, you can find other options here. But then again, why not test their variety to expand your sense of New York chocolate?
At Liddatbit Sweets, you’ll find a few options that won’t disappoint. They consist of items dipped with chocolate like bacon, pretzels, corn, beer and caramels.
Madelaine Chocolate Company
The shop for this manufacturer can be found on Beach 95th Street, NYC., if you’re looking for the widest variety of odd chocolate treats.
Consider things like chocolate cigars, artistic butterflies and malt balls. But be sure to locate the 95th street access point because the bulk of the chocolatier operates as a pretty decent sized factory.
Hurricane Sandy even threatened the operation of Madelaine Chocolate Company and in a devastating way, but $13.2 million was raised to support its recovery and by none other than the beloved, Mayor de Blasio.
Aigner has been a around for over 80 years and hasn’t stopped pleasing the cocoa appetite of New Yorkers. It also continues to be operated by the family name, Aigner. The shop can be considered New York’s own German or Austrian boutique giving you choices from truffles to marzipan; dipped gummies to sugar-free flavors.
The next time you’re in the Big Apple, try taking a bite out of something sweet like the chocolate products we just mentioned above. Visit the shops and learn more about their owners. We’re sure they won’t stop you from a free sample here and there; and a great conversation.
