As a kid, our superpower was an ability to pick out the caramel from a sampler box of chocolates on the first try, every time, much to the chagrin of our younger brother and sister. This year, however, Nunu’s chocolates has rendered our superpower obsolete by filling Valentine’s hearts a dozen of their famous signature salt caramels. Made with single origin chocolate from a family-run farm using sustainable practices and real sea salt in the caramel filling and also dusted on top of the chocolate shell, everyone’s a winner.
Both the Brooklyn and Manhattan stores are continuing a holiday tradition – our free port and chocolate tasting. Stop by the Manhattan wine store on Friday, December 18 from 5-7pm and taste chocolates from CaryMo Chocolate paired with our ruby, tawny and vintage ports. In Brooklyn on Saturday, December 19 from 5-7pm, NuNu Chocolates joins us and pairs their treats with port.
Speaking of sweet wines, the New York Times had an article swooning about Madeiras this morning. These fortified, oxidized wines are wonderful holiday treats. We carry the Rare Wine Company’s Historic Vintages – the Charleston Sercial in Brooklyn and the New York Malmsey in Manhattan.
