A VERY VERE UPDATE

Attention chocolate fanatics!

Two summers ago I covered verē chocolates
, but now it's time for an update.

There's an article about verē chocolate founder Kathy Moskal by Lore Croghan in the Daily News (November 5, 2007). "All the products are made of dark chocolate with 75% cocoa content and are gluten-free," notes the article, which also states that "The handmade treats contain so little sugar that a diabetic can eat them. A serving has less sugar than an apple, more fiber than a piece of whole wheat bread and more antioxidants than two pounds of broccoli."

The chocolates can be on the pricey side, but the article says that, as of November 15, 2007, "Moskal is launching a line of three-ounce organic chocolate bars with a suggested retail price of $5." Hm. Maybe that's pricey too.

Anyway, what's really exciting is that the verē factory at 12 West 27th Street is actually open to the public on Friday afternoons. You can go and taste samples and see the chocolates being made!

For a sense of what that's like, here's some footage smuggled out of the factory.
