You asked for it and it’s here! The A Slice of Brooklyn Chocolate Tour is ready to roll starting on Monday, September 12th, 2016 and you don’t want to miss out!
If you love chocolate, then this is the tour for you. You’ll sample some of the most delicious traditional and artisanal chocolates anywhere in the world, but even better because they’re made and/or originated in Brooklyn! Our authentic, Brooklynite tour guides will provide you with the same great tour of the borough while you experience all things chocolate in Brooklyn. We’ll even take you to experience a well kept secret: the best, and closest, view on land in NYC of the Statue of Liberty which is at at Valentino Pier Park in Red Hook. Get ready to have your sweet tooth satisfied and create lifelong memories!
Check out these mouth watering stops as our new bus tour takes you to parts of Brooklyn our other tours don’t even get to see!
1. Jacques Torres Chocolate in DUMBO.
Don’t feel guilty indulging in treats from Mr. Chocolate himself. Jacques Torres takes pride in using all natural, real ingredients and has been known to say, “chocolate is good for you”. We know you agree.
2. The Chocolate Room in Cobble Hill.
Get ready to sample chocolate cake that will make your mouth water, the same chocolate cake made famous by Oprah Winfrey as one of her “My Favorite Things” in 2007.
3. Raaka Chocolate in Red Hook.
You’ll be amazed seeing chocolate made from raw bean to bar and enjoy unique flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Can you say, “spicy chocolate”? Raaka Chocolate in Red Hook is the finest craft chocolate, made by hand, right in Brooklyn.
4. Li-Lac Chocolates in Industry City.
You’ll be mesmerized by this All American, classic chocolate shop. Li-Lac started in the 1920s and was the oldest shop in Manhattan. Called, “stubbornly old fashioned” by The Wall Street Journal, you’ll get a taste of the classic while visiting the newer shops on our tour too. We’ll watch the magic happen right in Brooklyn and you’ll see the coolest chocolate molds you can imagine .
5. Statue of Liberty
It wouldn’t be an A Slice of Brooklyn Tour if you didn’t get one of the best photo opportunities in Brooklyn! And here’s where you’ll get it: Valentino Pier in Red Hook for the best, and closest, view in NYC of the Statue of Liberty. All your friends will be jealous on social media when you hashtag #brooklynchocolatetour.
As you can see the Brooklyn Chocolate Tour is going to be a blast! Book your tickets now and be the first on the bus.
But please don’t blame us if the chocoholic in you goes on our Chocolate Tour more than once 🙂
