Nunu Chocolates has some of the best chocolates made in NYC. I visited the flagship store sometime back and got the booze box – ganaches infused with absinthe, sake, rye, mezcal-chili, moonshine, and amarula. The ganaches were smooth and velvety, and one cannot miss the distinct alcohol flavor. My favorite was the sake ganache.
NuNu sources its organic, single source chocolates from a sustainable farm in Eastern Colombia. Co-owners Justine and Andy started Pringle started NuNu based on the belief that the world is a better place with chocolate (I agree)! Its rare to find a chocolate store where you can enjoy chocolate with a glass of wine or a bottle of beer; at NuNu’s flagship store in NYC you can do just that
NuNu chocolates are available at many locations in NYC and nationally, as well as by mail order. So, you do have time to order some amazing chocolates anytime at your convenience and not just for this week.
