Li-Lac Chocolates

Li-Lac Chocolates

Cuisine: Candy/Chocolate


Li-Lac Chocolates is New York City's oldest chocolate house, established in 1923. But it wasn't until recently that these handmade chocolates could be found outside of Manhattan. A new chocolate factory and retail outlet in Industry City located off 3rd Avenue in Sunset Park is making that possible. It's also not too far from Jacques Torres' new chocolate factory at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Here you can watch as the chocolate runs down long conveyor belts before being turned into bunnies, Santas and lots of other objects. Li-Lac is also known for its butter crunch, almond bark, marshmallow bars and nonpareils. Some of which are offered as free samples when you pay the shop a visit. Now that's sweet!
