Christopher Norman Chocolates Hazelnut
This was a gift from a friend of my mother's. He heard I ran a chocolate blog, so he gave me a Christopher Norman bar from Hudson Chocolate Bar, which is part of Verdigis Tea Shop. It's in Hudson, which is about two hours upstate from NYC.
I have never been to Verdigis Tea Shop, but after eating this delightful treat, I'm thinking I should probably make a pilgrimage there.
Pretty simple: fine, rich chocolate on the outside; smooth, creamy chocolate flecked with hazelnut on the inside. Handmade in New York. Classy presentation, clean flavors. Just really quality chocolate done right.
BOTTOM LINE: The perfect high-class bar for gianduja fans.
