The Mast Brothers have been creating their chocolate for us to enjoy for a while and we thank them! For those of you who do not know chocolate outside Hersey's aka wax then I invite you to be edgumucated. Their plain chocolate has about two ingredients (love aside), cacao and cane sugar. Most if not all bars are dark chocolate around 72% cacao. They call it craft chocolate and if done perfectly (like theirs) then you need not add other ingredients. There is two whole ingredients, not even the most delicious cake in world can claim that! It is quite an interesting story, they source ingredients from premiere organic establishments. You can where it was sourced from on each bar. While they do cost more than your average chocolate bar, everything is made by hand. This also includes most of their packaging, which is designed by family and friends. If you are so lucky you can watch then wrap each bar by hand, but hand I say. You know you are close when you begining to smell the chocolate permeating out the door. Take a big whiff! bit.ly/mastbrotherschocolate
Sugar loves me, what can I say. I love desserts in NYC. I originally created this blog for my friend while she was pregnant with her first child.
I would usually bring a little something-something when I visited. These NYC desserts came from all around the city. It was from her pregnancy the idea to create a place for people to reference a dessert wherever they are in NYC was born.
The funny thing is, now her son doesn't like sweets or desserts..... go figure.
As we all know most New Yorkers do not venture outside their own neighborhoods. Hopefully EatSomeSweets will get you out.
The blog is designed to be extremely searchable on an SMS phone. IMO, I believe it is easier to choose a location than scroll through a bunch of postings.
Also, I do eat every dessert I post about. My desserts are eaten walking around NYC or on the treadmill.
