Chocolate Show New York

At this year’s Chocolate Show, $8 for a 1.75 oz. bar of chocolate is a bargain. Pacari, from Ecuador, has 1.75 oz. bars for $20. Given the medicinal properties of serious chocolate some would say that is still a bargain.

There were a number of U.S. chocolate businesses represented at the show — that are innovating and making excellent products, which is good because as inflation continues to grow cocoa beans may become a new form of currency, as they were with the Aztecs.
