Yum! It's International Chocolate Day!

Chocoholics, rejoice! We have been heard! I don't know who declared today a holiday, but it's International Chocolate Day. In honor of this glorious day, I'm thinking of skipping down to MarieBelle, the cutest little chocolate shop around.

MarieBelle offers decadent chocolates made from high-quality Colombian cacao but crafted in Brooklyn. She takes most of design her inspiration from the 1930s. The original SoHo location is decorated with photos of grand ladies out to tea, wrapped in minks, sporting adorable caps. For MarieBelle, it's all about details. The adorable little boxes call to mind the wall paper of an old fancy hotel. The art on their delicious dark chocolate "truffles" is so 60s, too.Best of all? The MarieBelle pin-up chocolate bars.

There are ten designs, each as yummy as any other.

MarieBelle is definitely worth the trip to SoHo, but luckily for out-of-towners, you can order online. Bon appetit!

  1. Dear d.funkt,

    I ask that you remove the image of the MarieBelle pin-up chocolate bars from your blog. I own this image, as well as the web site and bandwidth you are using every time this page is viewed (since you linked to my site).

    You should be more careful, since there are laws against copyright infringement, and cross-linking images from another's web site is extremely bad form.

    Please remove the image immediately.



Thanks so much for your comments!
