    @GODIVA goodies just in time for Lunar New Year!

    To celebrate the Lunar New Year, our amazing friends at Godiva invited us to an exclusive Lunar New Year Prosperity Celebration in NYC this week! This special event was held at the GODIVA Chocolatier Corporate Headquarters in Manhattan (I had no idea deliciousness was so close to home!). And this celebration was amaaazing. To put it mildly. Not only was Senior Chef Chocolatier David Funaro on the scene to walk us through the chocolatey goodness of signature cocktails and chocolate-dipped treats… But we were also treated to the unveiling of the limited edition 2014 GODIVA “Year of the Horse” Lunar New Year collection of chocolates.

    To @lilacchocolates factory we go!

I remember Michael Pollan saying in Food Rules that as…

    The British Candies Are Coming, The British Candies Are Coming @LondonCandyCo

    If there’s one thing I know best, it’s candy. Give me a sticky, gooey, chewy mixed bag of candy over a hot dinner any day! So it was with great childlike excitement that I attended London Candy Company’s grand opening event in NYC’s West Village this week. It goes without saying that this place is chock full of British candy, and if you think all candy tastes the same, you’re wrong! Candy connoisseurs (I like to think I’m one) will know that there’s a huge difference in the taste, texture and overall yumminess of British sweets. From the smooth, velvety texture of the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk bars to the extra…
