Chocolate has been a favorite indulgence of New Yorkers for centuries. Introduced to the region by European counterparts in the 1600’s, by the 1700’s the American colonies represented major trade hubs for cocoa beans coming from South America and the Caribbean. Enjoyed as a drink, the exotic delicacy was a favorite at local cafes, and was served alongside other popular beverages like coffee and tea. And with the introduction of solid chocolate during the Industrial Revolution the already-existing obsession over cocoa only expanded, a trend that has persisted over the subsequent centuries. New York City’s nearly 8.5 million residents continue to crave chocolate and are increasingly drawn towards luxury European brands because of their high cocoa content, clean flavors, and innovative recipes. Available in The Big Apple since 1999, zChocolat has won a devoted following among notoriously particular New York consumers by consistently focusing on all-natural ingredients and time-honored techniques to produce their line of artisanal chocolates.
Chocolate’s ability to hold the attention of even ever-busy New Yorkers is remarkable. In a location where boutiques rapidly turn over products trying to keep up with the latest trends and where fashion designers compete to stay on top of constantly changing styles, chocolate boasts a peculiar perennial staying power. Old and new chocolate shops are dotted throughout the city’s five boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, while a few mass-produced brands take up prime real estate with their large, tourist-attracting, anchor stores in Times Square. A 5000-square foot chocolate museum has found an eager audience on Hudson Street, luring in chocolate lovers with artifacts, premium tastings, and bon-bon making demonstrations, while other chocolatiers have found success adding ice cream to their menus wooing in weary commuters at Grand Central station. Despite the abundance of options in NYC, there’s still no easier way to indulge someone special with something truly spectacular than sending a gift from zChocolat. With simple online ordering, world class customer service, and fast overnight shipping, it’s the most convenient way to share some well-deserved pampering.
