Over the past year I have been inspired by the world of chocolate, last month I was really excited to have the opportunity to travel to the big apple NYC and explore with A Slice Of Brooklyn Chocolate Tour and taste some more! Well someone had to do it (wink wink).
A Slice Of Brooklyn Chocolate Tour
The tour meets in Manhattan before you're whisked away on-aboard a luxury tour bus, to where it all happens in Brooklyn.
First Stop Jacques Torres Chocolates
The cafe/shop was a buzz with activity. We gathered round eagerly awaiting the sweet delights in the corner comfy leather sofas. The samples of chocolate we're delicious! With slices of ginger covered in chocolate and chocolate covered pretzels. Afterwards you could buy your delight of choice that you've tasted or many of the others available in the shop, or perhaps both.
2nd Stop The Chocolate Room
The Chocolate Room is one for the senses. As you enter the sweet aroma of chocolate hits you followed by the view of the glass case filled with an assortment of handmade chocolates. The group were all given a miniature chocolate muffin topped with chocolate cream, which was mouthwatering! Then to follow a hot chocolate. Wow!

3rd Stop Raaka Chocolate
Raaka Chocolate takes you on a voyage of discovery in the process of bean to bar. Then after the grand tour sampling the delights. They also have a very tempting chocolate mail order delivery available. Where they send you a different bar of chocolate every month! Something to look forward to.

It was an amazing tour with something to suit all sweet toothed fellow friends. Each stop entirely different from the tastes of the chocolate, discovering how the chocolate is made and the real value of cocoa content and the unique and memorable stories of how each of the chocolate retailers began. Meeting the owners was a real treat too. It was a very personal and friendly tour.
The tour also stops at one of the most advantageous lookout points to see Lady Liberty and the NYC skyline.
One definitely on my to do list again on the next visit to NYC! Highly recommend!
