“Because everybody likes chocolate…”
Meet Justine Pringle and Andy Laird, co-founders and chocolatiers of NuNu Chocolates in Brooklyn, NY. What began as a just-for-fun idea turned into a successful small business all because they got too good at making chocolates to stop.
How good? Well, the truth is, I first tried NuNu Chocolates at a specialty beer shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I was browsing, checking the lineup of newly-stocked beers when to my left I saw what looked like a shelf of chocolates. I stepped toward it for closer inspection and, instantly, the see-through NuNu Chocolate box caught my eye. I picked it up. Mmmm. Salt caramels – and heavy on the salt, just how I like it. I wonder how they are…
“Beware!” I hear the the nice shop keeper say to me with a little smirk.
“What do you mean, beware?”
“Those chocolates are like crack. I have people walk out of here with 8-9 boxes at a time!” he warned, looking strangely guilty himself.
And he was right. Totally addicting? Check. Perfectly salted? Check. Like crack? Something special? Come take a peek inside their new Brooklyn shop and see for yourself…
