Everything you want to know about chocolate
Walking through Midtown the other day, I thought I'd stop into Macchiato Espresso Bar for a snack, after noticing this on their list of desserts: "Pocket Coffee (go ahead and ask...)" For $1, how could I not?
Delicious Italian chocolate, made by Ferrero (the same company that makes Rocher and Nutella), filled with delicious Italian espresso- and not some espresso flavored syrup, but actual espresso. Despite being told by the lady who sold it to me to eat it in one bite, we decided to take our chances, and see what was going on inside (we're crazy like that here at Serious Eats: New York.)
The "Liquid Center" after the jump...
