Stocking Stuffer Box - Aigner Chocolate

Time Out Says

This Forest Hills candy kitchen has been sating the confectionary cravings of Queens residents since 1930. Upon entering the tiny shop, kids are greeted by the scent of wafting cocoa and by helpful staff who guide them through the process of choosing the delights in front of them. Austrian chocolates crafted with rich centers are the shop’s centerpieces, but tots who’d rather save their choco-fixes for a Hershey’s bar can try vibrantly hued marzipan creations instead.

Why Aigner? “When it comes to chocolate, New York City is a competitive place. But Aigner Chocolates is a step above the rest, as evidenced by the shop’s long history,” reads Mental Floss‘s blurb on the store. Continue Reading ›
