Chocolate Week NYC and Beyond October 06 2017
This week in New York City we are celebrating Chocolate Week NYC for the first time! A big Thank You to the team behind The Big Chocolate Show for making this week all about chocolate. While Chocolate Week is new to New York City, it has been a tradition in London for a few years. When I first started working for Rococo Chocolates in September 2012 I had no idea what was in store just 4 weeks later. As their Events Manager I was responsible for all events both in the shops and outside. That October during Chocolate Week, that meant something everyday! I am pleased to say I survived all of the chocolate fun that week and still love chocolate. While Chocolate is the highlight during Chocolate Week NYC a lot of the events are actually available to attend year round. Here is a short list of chocolate related events to check out on your next trip to NYC.
- Sign up for Chocolate Rewards at 2Beans – When you sign up for a chocolate rewards card, you get 10% off you first order. When you reach 500 points(or $500) of purchases, you get a $50 2Beans Gift Card.
