Treehaus: Featuring Nunu, Mast Brothers, and Tumbador (among others)

Manhattan Espresso Cafe was around the corner from my previous job, and they sold all sorts of secondary market deliciousnesses.  My current go-to is Treehaus.  Aside from baked goods and other great things, they sell chocolates by Nunu, Mast, and Tumbador:

I bought some Nunu chocolate-covered graham crackers.  They were good.  As described.  They didn't blow me away.

From Mast, I bought a black truffle sea salt bar.  Like with Nunu, I thought it was very good, but I didn't really get the hype.  Everyone with whom I shared it, though, did get the hype.  It was a bit salty and fruity for me.

Surprisingly, the winner for me was the Tumbador Mint Crunch, with nibs.  This is obvious, because I ate it too quickly to get a picture of the bar itself.  Readers will know Leila and my fondness for mint and nibs, so this might not be surprising.  It might not be the best mint bar in NYC, but it's yet another darn good version.

Bottom Line: This isn't even scratching the surface of Treehaus' sweet offerings, to say nothing of their savories.


  1. I have said this before and I'll say it again: I am not an enormous fan of nibs. I prefer my chocolate to not be hard to eat thank you. Other than that I appreciate your recommendations and generally find them accurate. THANK YOU!

  2. I really LIKE chocolate-covered graham crackers, though. Chocolate-covered things are my jam. Would I like these more than you?

  3. more than i liked them? yes. would you like them a lot? probably. but i'm not sure you'd be blown away.

  4. I like chocolate covered graham crackers too. I am not sure if my likes in the chocolate realm make any sense...
