The chocolate show turned out to be lots of fun and there were some interesting displays including a vitrine filled with vintage chocolate molds and whimsical costumes constructed completely of chocolate.
After tasting lots of delicious samples, my two favorite exhibitors by far were Oliver Kita (www.oliverkita.com) and Chocolate Springs (www.chocolatesprings.com).
Oliver Kita's chocolates were visually stunning; many had interesting metallic patterns and gem-like shapes and surfaces. The Scarlet Caramel and Lavandre Citronade were delicious. These would make impressive individual favors or would be lovely served with coffee at the end of a meal.
I especially loved the special New York City illustrations created for the chocolate show. This assortment would be perfect to include in a welcome bag for out of town guests...
