#WorldChocolateDay

#WorldChocolateDay

Is there a better excuse to eat chocolate today besides the fact that we observe #WorldChocolateDay ? To celebrate, #HipNJ has put together a list of the best NJ sweet shops to indulge in your all-time guilty pleasure, chocolate.

Conrad’s Confectionary, Westwood

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 9.57.44 AM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 10.01.53 AM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 9.59.38 AM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 9.58.28 AM

Valentine’s Day, Easter, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, Christmas, #WorldChocolateDay, you name it, Conrad’s makes enough homemade chocolates for just about every holiday.  Family owned since 1928, Conrad’s Confectionary, located in downtown Westwood, is a great spot to grab a sweet treat.  If you can’t make it to the store, they even ship nationwide!

Chocolates With Love, Ramsey

Since 1981, this homemade chocolate and gift store has been providing deliciousness to NJ.  Their chocolate by-the-piece will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

Critchley’s Chocolate and Candies, River Edge

Since 1957, Critchley’s has been providing locals with the nostalgia feeling of old time chocolate eating. Before it was Critchley’s, this unique chocolate shop was a Lutheran Church.  Stop in to experience this homemade goodness!

Max Brenner, Paramus

MB_USA703x287 Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.29.41 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.29.18 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.29.05 PM

Who says a chocolate shop just has to sell chocolate? At Max Brennar, they do things a little bit different.  Grab a sandwich or salad, sip on a fruity drink, or even try their chocolate pizza! Dessert comes in many different forms at Max Brennar, even in chocolate syringe form.

Chocolate Works, Montclair

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.33.34 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.34.09 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.34.58 PM

Feeling decorative? Chocolate Works offers guests something that not many have experienced before.  Attend a workshop to make your own chocolate in a mold and then decorate your creation.  If you are just looking for some regular chocolate, Chocolate Works offers everything from chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate coins, truffles, and more!

Adi’s Sweet Shop, Bloomfield

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.41.33 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.42.39 PM

Upon walking into Adi’s, you can’t help but be captured by the bright colors of chocolate packaging all around the shop.  This place offers gourmet chocolates, truffles and bars for all to enjoy.  Plus, every Tuesday-Sunday 4-6 pm is happy hour! Buy any hot drink and get a free truffle of your choice.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Long Branch

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.45.20 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 12.32.08 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.46.04 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.45.53 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.45.43 PM

What’s better than chocolate? Chocolate and the beach! Rocky Mountain in Long Branch is located steps away from the sun and sand.  Stop in for fudge, an Almond Bear, Peanut Butter Bucket, or English toffee, just to name a few.

Country Kettle Fudge, LBI

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.48.30 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.48.39 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.48.58 PM Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 1.49.25 PM

Oh, fudge! There is no way you can pass this one up, #HipNJ.  The creamy, sweet, melt-in-your-mouth fudge is to die for with unique flavors like chocolate chip mint, cookie dough, Oreo crunch, M&M, salted caramel, the list goes on!

Enjoy #WorldChocolateDay!
