Cocoa V: Cocoa V, a vegan chocolate boutique and wine cafe opened it’s doors on November 22nd, 2009 in the quaint, fashionable neighborhood of Chelsea, NYC. What makes us stand out among a slew of other chocolate shops in the big apple are a number of things.  We are the very first 100% vegan, organic, fair trade chocolate shop to date.  In our boutique we offer a complete line of bon bons, truffles, bark, bars and baked goods. Special treats like our signature vegan "milk" chocolate truffles, almond toffee, chocolat covered caramel popcorn and pillowy marshmallows allow everyone who's vegan or lactose intolerant to feel like a kid in a candy store again!

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.
