Royce' Chocolate is Now Open in NY

Japan's Famous Royce' Chocolate is now open. Housed in a Madison Avenue location designed by Sam Trimble, the store is delicately dotted with signature goodies like Nama Chocolate and Royce' Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. All made with fresh Hokkaido cream, the imported selections are a wonderful addition to the growing New York artisanal chocolate scene.

I Won A Giant Cloud!

Guess who's coming to dinner? Rainer! 

He's a member of the Land Of Nod pop up shop decor that was raffled for a good cause and I am happy to say that he's all mine.

You can see him in this picture of the Land Of Nod toy shop window and in the photo below enjoying a peacful flight in the sky.

Antique Chocolate Molds

I am the proud new owner of an amazing chocolate mold collection.

Also in the mold collection is an antique display case made
by Buffalo Store Fixture Co.
Eugene Hahn came to the U.S. from Germany in 1923 and imported metal chocolate molds. Offshoots of the family were chocolate and candy makers and had Buffalo area confectionery business called Lang's and Beryl's.

Shown here is a display case showing some lovely wax "chocolate" pieces made using Hahn molds. More to come!
