Review Detail

 
New York
Written by Mattie    
I was so excited to learn there was a recently opened vegan gourmet chocolatier in NYC. I headed over there after work recently and ended up getting a box of chocolates for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. Of course I got a few truffles from myself and quickly found that Cocoa V's chocolates are edible works of art. Everything from Pecan Praline to Key Lime truffles were amazing. I have yet to have one of their chocolates that isn't mind-blowing. The staff was super helpful and friendly.

The prices were pretty high but that's what you get when you offer exclusively organic and fair-trade products. Slave labor is cheap, knowing better is a little more expensive. Slavery and chocolate go hand so it's important to support businesses that sell Fair Trade products and Cocoa V's quality chocolates makes it an afterthought.

Cocoa V also has a wine bar next door that serves food and does chocolate pairings. Yes you read that right: chocolate and wine pairings. Under the same roof? I think I may have found heaven in NYC.
