9th Annual New York Chocolate Show

9th annual chocolate showThe New York Chocolate Show will be held this weekend from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12, 2006. This show is a chocolate lover’s paradise. Free samples from the best chocolatiers, demonstrations from top chefs and all of the books, magazines and tools related to chocolate that you can find. There’s only one problem, almost everyone in New York loves chocolate. The show is great, but I am still torn on whether it is worth spending the $25 admission and calories to attend the show with mobs of sample-seeking New Yorkers. This show can get very crowded, and it becomes difficult to see the people actually standing behind the booths. There are just arms sticking through the crowd, trying to get to the sample bowl! Hopefully the crowd will be properly managed and the show will allow everyone to get a look at the exhibitors. I am interested in visiting a few companies I’ve had my eye on, like Sweet Bliss and Tribeca Treats. Knowing my love of chocolate, I won’t be able to stay away from this one.

If you’re visiting from out of town there may still be time to take advantage of the weekend chocolate packages offered by the Exchange Hotel. For $399/night you get 1 ticket to the Chocolate Show per guest, an MTA pass, chocolate drinks at the hotel and a chocolate goody bag. For $1200 a night, you get two nights in a spacious suite and a private walking tour of Manhattan’s famous chocolate shops including Christopher Norman Chocolates, Vosges Haut-Chocolat, Kee’s Chocolates, MarieBelle and Jacques Torres. I wonder how Max Brenner feels being left out of this group. There will always be more chocolate in New York than can be explored in one weekend, but this package is a good start.

Hi Kelli,

From http://frommers.com/articles/4009.html:
We’re also pleased that the show’s organizers have once again given us a 40% reduced ticket price, good for the Friday, November 10th show after 3pm only. (The Friday show runs until 9pm.) Enter the code FRMS1006 at ticketmaster.com, and you’ll pay $15 for each adult ticket (normally $25), good for up to 2 tickets per order. Or bring a printout of this article and buy discounted tickets directly at the show (bring 1 printout per adult).

I’ve been. It’s o.k. dunno if it would be worth the entry fee a second time, but once was worth doing.

Last time, I felt like I was going to explode from the chocolate consumption.

crowds were the usual…most of the chocolatiers were pretty bad…broken ganache..thick shells…sadly enough some of these folks are highly regarded..

there were a few gems… anna shea chocolates was there.. she does a great job – top notch ganache..beautiful shells..i also really enjoy the texture and mouth feel of Marys of Toyko…a few other ones were there as well but im tired…
