If you’ve read Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, then at some point you’ve must have fantasized about the chocolate factory being real and being able to enjoy it’s wonderfully delicious treats. The sad thing is that as soon as you close the book, you acknowledge that the idea is out of reach and bring yourself back to reality. Well what if I told you that such a place does exist in our world and it has been in existence since 1946 ! Right here in one of the greatest cities of the world lies a pure NYC treasure in southern Brooklyn called JoMart Chocolates.
JoMart Chocolates is a local chocolatier that was founded by Martin Rogak in 1946 and is currently run by Michael Rogak. Just as the store has been in the family for three generations,the customers been loyal for just as long. Once you experience the deliciousness that this place has to offer, you will understand why people come to shop at the same store for their candy needs. However, the credit does not just go to the amazing treats, it is also the love and hard work of every person that works there which constantly attracts customers to come back.
I had the privilege of working at JoMart back in Fall of 2012. Although I was only there for a short period of time, I have come to have great appreciation for this place. The amount of hard work, creativity and love that is put into every product available is just amazing. From marshmallows, to caramels and pretzels, all types of chocolates are ready to make your senses go on a roller coaster ride. Many of their chocolates are hand dipped and all are made on site. My favorite are the Pistachio Patties and the Continental Truffles and trust me that is only the tip of the ice burg for what this amazing shop has to offer. I would highly recommend visiting the shop but if you cannot go in person, you may order online or call to be assisted with your candy needs.
So let your inner Charlie Bucket out and live your childhood dream of experiencing imagination and candy making come together. Click on the links below for more information.
