The term 'Nunu' is an affectionate nickname for little kids in South Africa where I spent my childhood. My mother called me "Nunu" while I was growing up and I've since heard it used as a term of endearment in many different countries and cultures. Based now in Brooklyn, my husband Andy and I started Nunu Chocolates in 2007 with the belief that the world is a better place when chocolate is involved.
We use a single origin cocoa bean derived from a Trinitario and Criollo hybrid which we get from a sustainable family-run farm in eastern Colombia.
Our chocolates are then handcrafted in small batches and stacked on the counter of our store, where people can have a Frozen Hot Chocolate, latte, or glass of wine to pair with a batch of freshly made Salt Caramels.
"The Best Chocolates in America"
"The most original, creative, and delicious sweets on the planet."
The New York Times
"When the day comes that I am crying into my pillow over cupcakes of the past, I hope to be doing so with a box of bonbons from Nunu Chocolates."
New York Magazine
"South African-Danish chocolatier Justine Pringle of Nunu Chocolates is known for her sea-salted caramels, but we're equally devoted to her chocolate-covered grahams"
