Shop the Season: Raaka Chocolate

You'll usually find her blogging in black and white for our From the Archives column, but now Archivist Anne Kumer (of NYC Circa renown) turns her keen eye to the selections at The Holiday Shops. 

Raaka Chocolate, located on the Fountain Terrace in The Holiday Shops is a go-to for the chocolate lovers in your life. They sell small and large bars of chocolate that often mix sweet and savory flavors, and there are samples of ALL of them. Having heard the siren song of "bourbon" as I glanced over the inventory, I went right for the bourbon cask aged bar (red label, front and center). It's delicious, as was the 71% dark with sea salt bar just to bourbon's left.


I also love this shop for a bunch of non-product reasons: it's merchandised well, there are a variety of gift packages available, the staff person was super nice and well-informed, and the prices are listed on easy-to-read and visible signage. (That last one is a huge plus for me.)
