When you hear the phrase “stubbornly old fashioned”, you might not think it’s a good thing. But when it comes to Li-Lac Chocolates, it sure is!
“NYC’s Oldest Chocolate House, preserving the heritage and traditions of old-school, hand-crafted chocolate for almost 100 years.
Using original recipes and old-world cooking methods from the 1920’s, Li-Lac Chocolates are still made by hand in small batches for exceptional quality and superior taste.”
Wanna know what makes it even better? NYC’s oldest chocolate house since 1923 is now in Brooklyn! They’ve set up shop in an area of Sunset Park called “Industry City” where some of the old warehouses have been converted into manufacturing hubs and food courts, and we’ll take you there on our Brooklyn Chocolate Tour!
While you’ll experience the artisanal and whimsical styles of chocolate at the other stops on our tour, at Li-Lac you’ll experience the more traditional styles that they’re known for. They feature over 140 items with one of the largest selection of gourmet chocolate in America.
They’re also known for making chocolate out of the coolest molds ever!
They make fresh marzipan using pure Almond Paste from their founder’s original recipe and hand dip each Acorn in their 72% extra dark chocolate. Is your mouth watering yet?
Li-Lac Chocolates has received some pretty rave reviews too:
“It’s my favorite chocolate place in the city”– Andy Cohen, Bravo
“An anomaly in NY’s artisanal chocolate culture”– Wall Street Journal
“Li-Lac French Mints are a guaranteed hostess-gift hit”– Martha Stewart Living
As you can see, we couldn’t have a Brooklyn Chocolate Tour without including one of the most iconic chocolate shops in the country. Come see why for yourself. Our maiden voyage is on Monday, September 12th!
Love pizza and fun stories? Well this is the tour for you. I had so much fun on the pizza tour. Paula is a fantastic tour guide, she is full of great stories, not only about the neighbourhood, but has loads of anecdotes about movies too. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this tour, not only for the pizza, which by the way was delicious, but just to spend a few hours with someone that obviously loves Brooklyn.
