For my next stop on my October Brooklyn Candy Challenge, I visited Nunu Chocolates.
Nunu is run by a husband and wife duo, and they’re taking great detail into handcrafted, sustainable, naturally made truffles and caramels. They have lots of great sounding products, including hot chocolate.
To narrow down my decision, I went with their most popular item, their Hand Dipped Salt Caramels.
Amazing. No, so amazing. Caramel dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with Fleur de Sel.
The chocolate is smooth, not overly bitter but has a melty texture that makes it so great. You instantly get the salty and sweet component. I especially love the larger flakes of sea salt, no need to be shy with the salt. The caramel is rich and deep in flavor with an excellent consistency, and not overly sweet, which balances out the whole chocolate so well.
Name: Nunu Chocolates
Location: 529 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, NYC locations and online
The Long and Short: Would I buy it again? For sure…once winter is in effect, I’m stopping by for some hot chocolate!
Would I recommend it? Definitely. The packaging is even so detailed that they absolutely make a great gift.
The Mezcal chocolates there were so good, too. I tried them via their booth at Mad. Sq. Eats, and I really want to grab their bourbon chocolates next.
