Manhattan's Oldest Chocolate House: Li-Lac Chocolates
By sprungonfood on 2/15/2014
Li-Lac Chocolates is Manhattan's oldest chocolate house, since 1923. How did I not know this? Well, I didn't, until I found them on my Grand Central Tour. Described as "stubbornly old fashioned", this chocolate company has been making their chocolates the old school way, not changing or conforming to trendy, new comers along the way. They have a range of classic truffles, fudges and caramels, something for everyone. I tried a couple of their signature items. First, I had aÂ Hazelnut Truffle Square.

Worth the trip

I've been a customer of the Lilac for at least 15 years. That includes traveling from Jersey and climbing up that forever staircase leading from the PATH platform to Christopher Street. In addition to the most important thing - the most fabulous chocolate - the store (whether the old or the new) is always clean. I have never seen a customer treated rudely no matter how obnoxious the customer. They have always been extremely helpful to me whether it was a small purchase or an extreme holiday order, shower favors, or orders to be shipped. They are, all around, the best.

- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
