from brooklyn with love



I haven't been on The Selby for a while, but whenever I do I end up spending a lotta time browsing through all the new images. Selby's subjects just get better and better, and I was thrilled to see the Mast Brothers and their Brooklyn chocolate factory being profiled recently. They make one of the most sinfully delicious chocolate bars I've ever tasted, and their trademark patterned paper packaging is equally delightful. You could almost taste their immense level of dedication in each handcrafted chocolate bar, from cocoa bean roasting all the way to the paper wrapping. My favorite is the Dark Chocolate w/ Fleur de Sel, and I have been craving it ever since I moved back to Hong Kong. Mast Brothers alone is enough of a reason for me to open a gourmet store here just so I could have a constant stock of their dark chocolate bars. I'm not exaggerating, go get a bar (or three) to share with your Valentine next weekend and I'm sure he/she will love you just a lil' bit more.


I used to pass by their factory every day after work!
