What a wonderful holiday gift! Boxes of sophisticated, unique, and oh so delicious chocolates in charming assorted giftboxes. Nunu Chocolates feature such flavors as Salt Caramel, Earl Grey, Double Dark, Raspberry, Prosecco, Espresso, Soft Golden Caramel, Peanut Caramel Crush, Hazelnut, and Cashew Caramel.

And, so trendy — as Brooklyn becomes a hotspot for its own beers — you can enjoy your beer from the inside of Nunu Chocolates in their Beer Box! Beers “on tap” are Barrier Hoplantic Pale Ale, Two Brothers Outlaw IPA, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout.

Another great holiday gift is the Nunu Chocolate Booze Box made up of booze-infused ganaches that include Absinthe, Moonshine, Sake, Rye, Mezcal-Chili, and Amarula.
