Chocolate Madness Saturday

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today I attended the 14th annual NYC Chocolate Show, which is open until Sunday (tomorrow) at the Metropolitan Pavilion.  The Chocolate Show consists mostly of vendors selling and sampling chocolate, but there are also cooking demonstrations, book signings, and children’s activities.  There are some seemingly unrelated booths promoting alcohol, spices, NYTimes subscriptions, etc…but for the most part the show will appeal to chocoholics.  The first day of the show there was a chocolate fashion show and the wears can be seen on mannequins scattered throughout the room.

Some standout booths were American Heritage Chocolate (historically inspired colonial hot chocolate), Chocolate for the Spirit (costumed salespeople selling adorable chocolate buddhas), Gnosis Chocolate (raw/vegan chocolate), and Maison Boissier (colored chocolate petals).

I hadn’t been to the show in several years and my only complaint is that the event is now condensed to one room, which was packed with people.  I also think the admission fee of $30. is high, but you can bring two children for free per ticket.  For more information about the Chocolate Show, check out the site here.
