Calling all chocolate lovers. The Mast Brothers chocolate has landed at OA.

What is this? We’re talking about fresh, artisanal chocolate made by two brothers in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 2007.

Rick and Michael Mast work magic with cacao pods and sugar. Or is it science? Maybe just a little science. But such tasty magic!

Read more about what they do at Julia Moskin’s Recipe Lab from the New York Times Dining page.

Come find the Mast Brothers chocolate at our store!
