I found the wackiest little candy bar at Chocolate Bar, an oasis of designer chocolate in New York’s Greenwich Village. If you’re just too cool to carry around a box of dorky Junior Mints, and too hip to hide Peppermint Patties in your purse, then this is the bar for you. Think classic mint and chocolate combo with a more sophisticated dark chocolate take. The weird little monsters on the wrapper, designed by artist David Horvath of Ugly Doll fame, are reminiscent of the good old days of Saturday morning cartoons. Along with the matching Choco+Minty toys that I found at davidhorvath.com, this bar is destined to be a hit among the design crowd and the young at heart. When you purchase a bar, a portion of the proceeds goes to the Third Street Music School Settlement, a children's arts education organization.
